If putting a 'tilak' on the forehead, wearing a holy thread on the wrist, offering
prayers five times a day or visiting a temple, mosque and church, you could
attain 'Dharma - the religion', the ultimate height of the world, then nothing is
cheaper than religion.
- Deep Trivedi
The whole purpose of religion is to facilitate love and compassion, patience, tolerance, humility, and forgiveness.
- Dalai Lama Xiv
Hatred and contempt, be it for a thing or a person, has no place in the 'Hindu'
religion... Whereas these so-called Hindu saints are building number of ashrams
by inculcating the unnecessary feeling of 'sinfulness' in you. What kind of Hindu
are you and what kind of saints are these?
- Deep Trivedi
God has no religion.
- Mahatma Gandhi
You look at it, but it is not to be seen; Its name is Formless. You listen to it, but it is not to be heard; Its name is Soundless. You grasp it, but it is not to be held; Its name is Bodiless. These three elude all scrutiny. And hence they blend and become one.
Religion is based primarily and mainly upon fear.
- Bertrand Russell
They say religion is about love, but you wonder how much of it really is about fear.
- Deb Caletti
Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived.
- Issac Asimov
I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
- Khalil Gibran
Every day people are straying away from the church and going back to God.
- Lenny Bruce
