Religion and region

It is disconcerting that philosophy and religion are wedded to geography. Many a times a religion is construed even as a race. The turban that a Sikh sports doesn’t make him belonging to a separate race. Globalization has failed to build bridges between, say, German philosophy and Japanese thought. Education and critical reason should empower a person to choose and change religions. [TNM]

  1. For spreading Savitri's message one should let people understand the ancient Indian Tradition by reading some important Purans such as Vishnu Puran, Sri Mad Bhagawatam etc. Otherwise so many terms and definitions one will not be understood or taken a wrong view from the very beginning.
