The Meaning of Religion
Religion is one's awareness of, and response to, the ultimate challenges of life and the answer to the perennial question: whom, or which forces in the world, do you serve with your life? What is your life causing in this world? Religion is the sum total of one's beliefs and feelings about that which determines destiny and the way one relates to oneself, society and the universe. It is also a person's readiness to strive for the realization of ultimate ideals in face of great adversity or danger.
