Sri Sri Ravishankar on Religion



Religion should not be a barrier. I feel that one should not have any prejudice in this 21st century. We can't afford to have prejudice against any religion or any community. We live in a globalized society, and there needs to be an exchange of wisdom, an exchange of ideas. When we can exchange our food and music, why shouldn't we exchange wisdom? I think people are very intelligent. It's not like it was in the Middle Ages, where the walls of religion and community and nations were so hardened, making it hard to communicate.

Today, there is better communication, better understanding. Spirituality transcends religious restrictions and boundaries. It actually unites people of all religions because it's basically about how to better one's life.
