this may seem as an absurd question to all,,but i had read about this in an article about psychology of religion,,and its actual answer is that ppl do not know only a small portion of what all u do is accessible to conscious inspection what do u say?? are u aware of it??.......

Since my religious concepts are largely defined by what I was taught by a family member, my own spiritual experience, and my study of historical evidence of the religion of my ancestors, I'm pretty aware of what I do. However, I have met many people in organized religion who often didn't seem to know why they did certain things, or could only give "canned answers" taught to them by their clergy. I'm not really sure if that's the kind of thing you were talking about or not, because your question seemed a little unclear. If my reply doesn't make sense, please clarify your question for me a little.

Actually, what I was saying was that since I'm not part of an "organized" religion, I tend to be more aware of exactly where my religious ideas came from. I have to do more research, because I don't have anyone else to just lay it out for me, like clergy would. I think whether you're aware of most of your religious concepts, based on your further explanations, would have more to do with how focused on your religion you are in life than anything. If you are a writer professionally, you are going to be more likely to think about grammar. Therefore, if you are intensely personally spiritual, or if you are a professional clergyman, you are probably going to be more likely to think about that as well.

Upto india eighty people are know about their religious concepts and rituals of their own. Even throughout the year they are following the rituals whenever time permits of them.
