Before you start reading this blog, I’d like you to keep a two points in mind:-
- I am writing about God as the product of a belief, rather than a spiritual entity by Himself.
- This blog is not intended to harm anyone’s religious beliefs, so any harm caused to the same is purely accidental.
Let us begin with the definition of the word “God”.
God is any supernatural entity that we believe created the world and controls it.
Now I will ask you a simple question; before any major examination or inauguration or any such event, what do you do? You pray to God, right?
What does praying to God give you?
It gives you mental satisfaction and strength that you derive from praying to Him, because you are convinced that He will help you in your endeavours.
Ancient Indians, as you know, were very advanced in the science of biology and knew that various plants have different effects on the human body. But the educated Indians were a select few, who were either rich or belonged to the Brahmin caste. They wanted to share their knowledge with their fellow Indians but were unable to do so because the common man in India in those days was uneducated. That is why they “invented” God and the traditions we follow today, so that because they fear God, they would follow the traditions the sages so carefully thought out and benefit from them. That is why we should stick to our roots and follow our traditions. But we should not follow them just because of blind faith, but because we can benefit from them and thereby not waste the hard work our ancestors have put into making them.
