“Without cultural sanction, most or all our religious beliefs and rituals would fall into the domain of mental disturbance.”
“Pilgrimages, fasts, purification and self-discipline are of no use, nor are rituals, religious ceremonies or empty worship.”
Sri Guru Granth Sahib
“Religion in itself is not evil, just ignorant, superstitious and patronizing, acting upon your religious beliefs to harm someone is what makes it evil.”
“They may perform all sorts of religious rituals and good actions, but without the Name, the egotistical ones are cursed and doomed.”
“Without the True Guru, God is not found; all have grown weary of performing religious rituals.”
“Some think about religious rituals and regulations, but without understanding, how can they cross over to the other side?”
“A peasant dies calmly because he is not a Christian. He performs the rituals as a matter of course, but his true religion is different. His religion is nature, with which he has lived."”
Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
