Spirituality is not praying all the time or following all rituals of religious dogmas. Discarding all worldly things, become a saga, start wearing saffron or white or black or green robs. It also does not mean going to jungles or mountain a secluded place away from the world. People were doing it, so that they may not be tempted toward them.
In Spirituality one should have control of mind, senses, understanding hardship for the sake of duty, control on all worldly desire, and its senses. Purity of thoughts and action are reflected in actions of the person. The tide of circumstances and tussle of life may toss the person hither or thither, may put some to down but one should remain noble, thus Forgiveness. Straightness of mind and body comes in Spiritual Person. Ego has no role in it. To be more correct it is tbued. The moment Grate Sagas think because of his work people have gain or because of me this thing has happened, then he is not the SPIRITUAL Person. Believe in GOD [supernatu ...more

Spirituality is an inner quest with which each person is born. And the only purpose of life is to take up that quest and fulfill ones life. Spirituality is God/nature given inherent in you. Religions are man made. Religions were originally intended to aid spiritual journey but later degenerated into HERDS controlled by priesthood. It thus became POLITICS in the name of God. Today religion is the greatest dividing factor in humanity creating conflicts, hatred, fighting and killing!

Spirituality is different from religion. I am a spiritualist, not a religionist. A religionist is a person who supports one or more doctrines and dogmas which are part of a/an physical institution. That institution consists of people who all accept the same doctrines and dogmas more or less, to greater or lesser extent. It includes the collection of money and the building of physical edifices church buildings. Religion tries to extend its power into the world, controlling others, usually with FEAR based concepts.

As a matter of fact, when you talk to most religionists about God or the Soul, they know almost nothing about either - and what they think they kn ...more
