Religion does the important work, of organizing all the members, of the society by tying them in the thread of unity. The members of religion naturally tend to accept the same values. Due to common values and ideology, they become cooperative in each other’s happiness and sorrow.

Religion means to see soul to soul, to know soul to soul, and to be situated in soul to soul. That, which is not the nature of the soul, is not religion. Religion is the purity of conscience. It is not attained by mere interest in religion, it is attained by its spiritual practice. There are very few religious people who do spiritual practice.
