Sprituality and Religion - understanding for betterment in life

Spirituality is the one which fills the human life with contentment, eternal happiness and peace!!

In today's world, spirituality has become synonymous with temple or mosque or church or some religious symbol. It has become synonymous with religion. This is what makes a person averse to the word spiritual or spirituality and discourage younger lot from talking or knowing more about it, unfortunately. Are they same or is spirituality different from religion?

Everyone in this world yearns for happiness of self and the immediate family. Trying to work their way through in this society and trying to shut themselves up when the word spirituality props up in the way. Purely because in today's world, not many understand what is spirituality means. Not even the word religion is understood properly.

As Sri Sai Master mentioned while explaining why Sri Shirdi Sai Baba is synonymous with Sprituality, religions are nothing but the way few great people lived while following set norms. If one tries to understand different religions, they all teach the same thing and the final goal of all religions is same. Sri Shirdi Sai Baba lived all his life without belonging to any religion, at the same time belonging to all. He answered the calls of every human being who surrendered to him, irrespective of religion, caste or creed. He showed everyone what is the goal of a human being through his deeds. He showed what is humanity.

That is why Sri Shirdi Sai Baba is synonymous with Sprituality.

Jai Sai Master !!
