Serious Post

I have a friend who is so religious, you will actually find him listening to devotional songs most of the time. Me, being completely non religious, get into numerous arguments and fights with him. I point out to him all the time that i believe in God or super natural power or what ever name you give. But not religion.

I don't like to get into such discussions 'cos to me its waste of time to even think about religion. But i argue with a smile to just check my friend's patience and his stand on things he believes. I have to say its amazing to see him talk about it for hours and never once even give an opportunity for me or anyone to alter his belief. I do feel bad to have given it a try to change his thoughts. He has tried to change mine and few others opinions on religious stuff but we have not given up on what we believe too. 

We've been having a lot of talks and discussions about right and wrong, what to do and what
not, whom and what to follow. Have never come to a conclusion though 'cos I'm assuming our knowledge on God, religion and other serious stuff is not to that extent of deciding on it, or maybe we don't want to conclude. At least i don't expect a final answer or an end to these kinda discussions. I'm not here to dig into the right and wrong mentioned by others and judge. I just want to learn about anything and everything. I feel all these are good to know information.

End of the day we all follow, share, read and talk about what makes us happy. If following a particular religion and visiting temples on Shivrathri makes him happy, good for him. Reading about Lord Shiva and how he was a normal human being like us but with amazing qualities, make me happy. So good for me.


P.S : Apologies for the title of the post. Just couldn't think of anything else.

  1. I have a few friends who are just like that. They like to talk about their point of view for ever without even letting me get a turn. Forget letting them know about the other side of the coin! It is a serious post! :D

  2. Your article comes at a time when just a week back I and 2 friends of mine who visited my place for a day had a wonderful discussion for nearly 3 hrs at night till abt 3 am on agnosticism vs theism. The point of discussion our society in general was god fearing, not God loving. It was such vivid discussion that its almost impossible to put in on paper. still I will try my best to put in my blog. Please do read..

    Btw, I wanna quote something from the movie The dark knight. 'Sometimes truth is not enough.. People deserve their faith to be rewarded'. When ultimate truth about God's existence, presence, whatever you call is something which you will never know to perfection ever, its about faith in him that matters. whatever be the way. As you said at the end, Lets do whatever makes us Happy..

  3. The concept of religion and the basic concept of God, is a big burden for people. I am free from this burden right from my childhood :)
