Beware of Spiritual Gods ( Human ) : Part - 1.
Sub : Beware of Spiritual Gods ( Human ) :
Ref : Bharatham is full of pseudo religious guru-s, starting with priests of Temple, Church and Mosque
Respected family members of this great holy Nation.
No doubt in all religions the priest class has, in every community, a special niche of reverence and respect.
This attitude is, no doubt, necessary for the seekers to evolve themselves.
Moral perfection cannot be acquired by mere study.
They have to be constantly assimilated into our own personality, until, instinctively, we come to live them in all our contacts with the outer world.
This assimilation is possible only when the followers can steadily watch the play of such perfect moral values in the living behavior and conduct of their teachers
1. But this privilege has been for a long time overemphasized and the priests in every religion have been arrogating to themselves more and more divine powers.
2. They have been using these to curb the intellectual freedom and emotional fluidity of their respective followers.
3. This has already done more harm to the society than pure atheism or vulgar materialism can ever hope to achieve in any future period of history.
