Gurudev, following religion to a large extent sometimes makes a person rigid. Some people become righteous but ultimately they suffer and others around also suffer. Have we understood religion wrongly?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

That’s it! You said it correctly. We have understood religion wrongly. Now we need to move from religion to spirituality. The intelligent ones will do that.
The intelligent one will not get stuck up in the religious sentiments. We are beyond the religious sentiments. We should move into the spiritual dimension.
