SUN OF SELF ON THE WALL OF MIND | IWGR I | RAMA राम

|| < : 3 ASPECTS OF RELIGION : > ||

Every religion has got three aspects .

Every religion has got its philosophy , its mythology , and its ritual .

No religion without philosophy can stand .

< : 1 : > In order that it may appeal to the learned , the wise , the reasoning class of people , it ought to have a philosophy ;

< : 2 : > In order that it may recommend itself to the people of sentimental emotions , of emotional nature , it ought to have a mythology ;

< : 3 : > In order that it may appeal to the common folk , it ought to have a ritual .


AIDS TO REALIZATION | IWGR II | RAMA राम

|| THE IDEAL OF SHIVA ||

Every religion ought to have three phases , one is philosophy , the other is ritual , and the third is mythology .

Philosophy is for the learned ; ritual is for the outward body , for the children ; and mythology is for the thinker .

The three have to go hand in hand .

If anyone lags behind , then that religion cannot stand .

It is because of these three being in perfect harmony in the Hindu Scriptures that the Hindu religion is still the religion of 300,000,000 people .

Any religion that lacks one of these cannot be the real religion .

In the Hindu religion all these three are in a perfect state .
