Full Description
Every religion is the product of the spiritual realizations of some of the greatest human minds, the likes of whom rarely walk on this earth. Religion becomes a unifying force when it focuses on the enlightening thoughts preached by these men; however, it tends to become disruptive when it depends on the limited knowledge of ordinary people to interpret them. The World of Religions presents eight major religions of the world and discusses their origin, growth, and their impact on society. The chapters reveal the greatness of every religion, all of whom aspire to integrate purity, compassion, and peace in everyday life. Contents: Foreword; Preface; The Art and Science of Religion; Hinduism: The Religion of Inclusiveness; Buddhism: Religion of Compassion; Jainism: Religion of Asceticism; Sikhism: Religion of the Gurus; Zoroastrianism: Religion of Goodness; Judaism: Religion of Obedience; Christianity: Religion of the Saviour; Islam: Religion of Surrender; Religion in the E-age; Acknowledgements; Select Bibliography.
