Another delightful study group is finished.
Afterward, Amma-ji spoke to me and she asked me a very important question. She said I should ponder this question and come back next week with an answer.
She said, children are always asking the why of things and when you teach religious classes to children you have to learn to have answers.
Why do we need religion?
That is the question. In stark contrast to my post about cherry-picking, in which I said it was fine for people who wanted to do that. However, religion is very important to me, the most important thing.
Why is that? Why do we need it at all? Is it not enough to be a good person?
I would like all of us to ponder this and start a discussion on this subject.
