Quote of the Day

"This is a time for us to remember that in the name of religion more people have died than in all the wars and natural calamities put together. Now more than ever we must understand that the purpose of religion is not to separate us. True faiths don’t preach hatred and killing, nor did any of the prophets. It is the people who interpret the scriptures who create the divisions. Division comes if we put our ego into the teachings of these religions. Let us strive to be free of that kind of egoism." – Swami Satchidananda

    This is so true. Religious teaching + Ego gives rise to fanaticism. No religion teaches violence but some fanatics according to what their interpretation of the teachings create rift between people (of the same religion as well as between two different religions).
