The religious man is he who does not belong to any religion, to any nation, to any race, who is inwardly completely alone, in a state of not-knowing, and for him the blessing of the sacred comes into being. – Krishnamurti
Krishnamurti defines the religious person here. In his view, it seems to me, a person ought to be his own, not swayed by any factor, condition or knowledge. And in that pure state of silence and being, then, is experienced the ‘sacredness’ which is self-evident and may be termed as a ‘religious experience’.
What’s our definition of being religious? What are the important qualities one seeks to attain as a religious person? Why is religion important? What is true religion?
Daily Affirmation: Today I embody true religion!
