Rituals And Religions

Rituals Add Color And Complexity To Religions

By Promod Puri

All religions are basically the same. It is their respective rituals which differentiate them.

The underlining pathway of all religions is a treasury of morals and ethics, dos and don'ts.

Rituals originated from local customs and traditions and from the priest class. The latter also sanctified them.

Rituals give color and shape to religion, which otherwise could be a bland presentation. And that is how each religion gets individual character and lot more complexity.
