Belief regained..

“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”

Always believed such philosophies of mine, and hated when religious belief's were implemented on me forcefully. Though from the last few years as everyone knew that i hated such stuff, it was kept away from me..and i was happy about it.

Recently few weeks back started going to a temple near my college, and i cant express how much peaceful i felt out there. Now its been quite a while i am visiting regularly...and i cant surely make out that i feel quite better after that the whole day ! Don't know what made me start that, but i am positive about it.

Still hate the religious philosophies, and other un-explainable things...but one thing i know for sure is that there is some belief regained in me...

Regardless of someone believing in religion or not , one thing is for sure..visiting a Gurudwara or Mandir or any religious place would definitely feel you at peace..

well as u said,i feel the same.Going to a temple does not mean that we preach reliegion and we are staunch followers.It gives peace and a sense of contentment that is beyond anything.

I liked and agree with all of your do not believe philosophy.

And its great that you have regained your belief.
Its not until you go to the temple that you realize what amazing sense of feeling you are missing

Nice post =)

Now Thats interesting thing to know :)

One should do whats makes me feel good and brings peace to them rather than doing what others ask/inspire them to do.

Surely religious things are one thing to think of in this direction..

Nice post :)

I like to think about things before blindly agreeing or disagreeing, so I can see where you're coming from. :) Though I do find that Temples (or any place of religious worship) have something really calm & soothing about them.

that was neatly said about religions and concepts, and about visiting a temple, same thoughts here. never loved the idol worships and stone gods.. but the calm and quite atmosphere does great to the mind.. it just adds to your energy some more elements :)

ah, nice post! just when i was thinking bout this, i come across your blog and read this post and i'm like, 'EXACTLY!' lol.

i personally never understood y most ppl i knew would aimlessly turn the aarthi around a couple of times, praise god, and offer prasad like he was going to come eat it and solve everybody's problems. but i never dissuaded anybody else from doing so either. i just never understood it.

yet i visit the temples to look within myself, n know that i have the power to change things within me. reflect and think in that peaceful environment while i hear the soft buzz of the slokas and mantras. its an amazing feeling!

anyway, great post! n awesome blog! keep writing.

Lavender on November 18, 2009 at 7:58 PM said...

I really like this post and I can relate to it 100%
I feel the same way
people blindly follow religion sometimes
It has a lot of things to offer
But it also takes a lot of things away from you.

The best thing to is to be spiritual and there's nothing more spiritual than going to a temple/church/mosque and bask in the positivity.
No matter what don't stop going there ok?

Cheers :)
