I am not too religious either. I do celebrate the festivals, and like to listen to mythical stories, but I'm not attached to any of them and do not follow the rituals fervently. I am definitely a spiritual person though. I love self-exploration, and I believe that everyone and everything in the universe is equal, and that we are all one.

Dear Friend, I am Religious. I belive to be Religious..I am not refusing Religion of Humanity..In fact Humanity is the Greatest, no doubt in it..I belive Humanity.. But still I am Religious as I feel or I define Defination of Religion is "The way of living a life" or it is one of the "Style to live life". So I feel you are born to so and so religion then you have social responsibilities of that religion as being I am Sincere to everybody so I cant refuse the laws and rules. If I do such then only it is nothing but hurting to people who are really religious.. So keeping all these aspects in mind and I belive both Humanity and Religious and like to be religious..

I am not considering any thing as a religious person: I have a sense that religion has mostly played its role to teach humans few very important things regarding life, community development, motivation, faith, discipline etc. at a certain level! I also tried to grasped that why spirituality developed separately if religion/s was/ were enough for humanity and why sect like religion also come up!? I am towards spirituality by nature! AND I THINK THAT NOW REALLY RELIGION WILL DISAPEAR GRADUALY AFTER PERCOLATING THE ESSENCE ELEMENTS FROM THAT REALM! ONE CAN SAY THAT IT WOULD BE A SHEDDING PROCESS OF THIS LIVING PLANET AFTER COVERING THE HUMAN SOCIETY IN VARRIOUS FORMS OF RELIGION! The religion has taught us so many things and in later stage indicated also that the purpose of religion was not to create rigidity and fundamentalism in human society but to create a solidarity between communinties as well as humans of varrious religion! But our prejudiced minds not understood at a large level and stuck to security and narrow purpose of the religion they follow! This is enough to clear my point of view in this matter!
