We always take the short and seemingly easy way. The main fundamental of religions were being true to self and other, trying to abdicate ourselves from kaam (lust), krodh (rage), lobh (greed), moh (attachment) and ahankar (conceit). But they are not easy at all to follow.
What easy is , Going to a temple, mosque , applying tilak , singing bhajan or namaz . What do you think is easy ? Going to a church and saying ‘Father, I have committed a sin’, or actually not committing a sin.
That is the reason we choose way of bhajan, namaaz and confession believing that we are following dharma.
Do you wonder who is called religious fundamentalist now a days? Those who don’t follow the fundamentals but a pseudo version of it.
Another good example of taking easy way is stopping our sisters, daughters to not dress provokingly, forcing to sit them in home than allowing to go outside to work. The reason behind this is very genuine, our sisters and daughters are not secure outside when alone. But what should have our approach to tackle the issue, robbing their freedom or making the world secure for them?
It is very unfortunate the approach we have chosen. It is high time that we pick the righteous way, so that we can fix the root cause. It is time to teach our brothers, sons and most importantly ourselves to behave properly, to respect women.
