Religion Has Become a Profession

Religion has become a profession

If we go deep, we shall find that here in India religion has become a profession, trade, calling and employment and people are earning from religion and they are turning rich. We have noted that a large number of people have established aasharams, matths and deras here in India and they could collect large number of devotees around us who are offering money to them and they are prospering.
The people of India had been religious people and even today they are believing in one of the religions and they are staunch religious people. The people who are experts in religions and the principles, they have started delivering discourses to the people collected around them. They are establishing themselves as fore-tellers and that is the reason the people are getting their forecasts from these people. They have started treating the people and at the same time they are telling the people that all the religions are one and there is no distinction between the religions.

All the religions are telling us that there is one and only one God and we all are His children. This principle is most attractive and that is the reason people from all the sides are collecting around these so-called saints and sadhus. If we assess the properties and other assets of these saints, we shall be surprised to note that they too are running governments. They have got hundreds of people permanently employed there and serving them. They are living life of kings and that is the reason all evils of rajas, maharajas and monarchs are coming in them and if we go deep into the news, these units are not right for the people.
The people of India must understand that religion should be our personal matter and we should not turn this line into a profession, trade, calling and employment and therefore, the state must close down all these matths, aasharams and deras and each religion should have a committee like shromani Gurdwara Parbancdhak committee established under the law and only those committees be allowed to open and establish a religious places for the people and their accounts be maintained properly and subjected to audit. No one should be allowed to adopt religion as a profession, trade, calling and employment. No one should be allowed to earn from religion and maintain himself on this earning. Every one should be praying before God himself and none should deploy others for conducting religious ceremonies and prayers for him and on his behalf. The people must be told that when others conduct religious ceremonies and conduct prays for them, they are actually not praying for the person who had deployed them, but they shall offer prayers for themselves. The people must understand the relations between them and God. When they are real sons and daughters of God, they shall need no third person to introduce them to God.
