Religion Unites and it Never Divides

by Priya Sharma, Australia

Religion unites and it never divides. It is clearly described that religion is supposed to unite people and not to divide or put them into categories on the basis of caste, colour and creed. It’s just like saying that the colour of the petals of one rose is distinct from one another. But this is not right. The colour of all the petals of the rose is the same. Actually the rose exists because it holds all the petals together and thus books attractive. If it fails to do that, there is no reason to call it a rose. Just like that, there is no purpose for religion if it is not uniting people.

On one hand, religion is believed to be the beginning of all goodness, but on the other hand, it is proving to be the root cause of many disputes. Religion was created by man only. When a child is born, there is no symbol to indicate that it belongs to a particular religion or caste. There is only one religion, the religion of humanity. Religion means to realize God and then love each and every human being. There may be many religios groups, but religion remains one.

All human beings have only one race, the human race. It is the same divine light that dwells in every human being. It is, therefore, important that after taking birth as a human being one must behave like a human being. There is an example, I often hear from my Dad. If a Hindu, Sikh, Christian and a Muslim get the water from the same river, and then take it to their respective homes start calling it their water. A Hindu starts believing that the water in his house is different from the water in the house of the Muslim gentleman. In fact both of them are wrong, because they both have received the water from the same river God has made all of us the same. ALL HE ASKS OF US IS TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS HE HAS LOVED US. And that is exactly what our Mission is teaching us. I’d just like to pray to Nirankar that He may bless us all to become one.
