It is necessary to learn the valuable knowledge behind religions, instead of worship them.
Let me explain with a story:
Nimal writes a letter, encloses it in an envelop and post it.
The postman delivers the envelop to Malka.
Malka opens the envelop and reads the letter.
Malka learns the message of Nimal by reading the letter.
But, the postman who delivered the letter is not aware of the message.
Religion is like an envelop.
How do you benefit by being the postman who carries it?
Open the envelop and read the letter to get knowledge to your life.
A slave cannot question the master.
Have a master mind to question and learn.
Dhamma of Buddhism invites you to critically analyse the knowledge. ඒහි ඵස්සිකෝ (එව බලව)
Institutional monks/priests have other priorities for you, like spell binding (worship/ surrender).
Make your best judgment.
Discuss knowledge with monks.
They are the librarians of Dhamma.
Popular interpretation of the term "සංඝ" is false.
Some monks try to read the knowledge with an open mind, but most like the comfort zone.
Be honest and work together to develop our country with wisdom.
"I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make you think"
