Religion is behavior and not mere belief – Dr S Radhakrishnan - Words to Ponder

Religion is behavior and not mere belief. It is not God that is worshipped but the group or authority that claims to speak in His name. Sin becomes disobedience to authority not violation of integrity.
When we realize the universal Self in us, when and what may anybody fear or worship?

Death is never an end or obstacle but at most the beginning of new steps.

Man cannot be satisfied by wealth or by learning but by developing the quality of detachment, of renunciation, making himself the instrument of a higher purpose. It is these that the realization of the fulfillment of man abides, and it should be our endeavor to develop it. Dr S Radhakrishnan
