What do we think of, when we speak about someone being religious? A human being paying respect to the divinity, pleasing Him with various religious rituals, mantras, or by adoptinga certain code of conduct, or everything in a combined way, etc. These are generally the features which we associate with a religious person. People purchase various Pooja Samagris online and offline to perform a Puja. But sometimes they fail to understand the significance of each and every item, used for worshipping.
Religion & Puja
Religion, in general sense, is the ultimate belief in a school of thought regarding Supernatural Power and worshipping rituals and moral codes prescribed in scriptures. A Puja or worship is the devotion shown to god, in return of His gratefulness of creating Life and in plea of giving an impetus, to take it forward. This puja or rituals is undoubtedly an important part of a religion. What is forgotten in the process of following the observances and the rules, are the other aspects.
Religion & Humanism
A certain way of life is also prescribed by various religions, which is very much related to humanism. This is mainly justifying the creation and life, giving meaning to it, through activities for self and others. Human beings should thrive to remove weaknesses, utilise the strengths to maximum, assistothers to one’s capacity and overcome struggles in achieving apurpose. This is important since every Human is created by the divinity and serving him is equal to serving the Superior.
