Working for Others

Spiritual Coach Johannesburg
Parliament Worlds Religions 2015

The secret of Religion lies not in theory but in practice. To be good and do good that is the whole of religion.” By Swami Vivekananda. Swami Vivekananda lay down the path for Hinduism in the West at the First Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893. He spoke not of himself or his achievements, he did not even speak of his Guru, Sri Ramakrishna Parahamsa, but he spoke of the Religion of his people.

We, the custodians of various faiths, ought to take a page out the books of these great men, who paved the way for us. The original speakers envisioned a world where all men lived in harmony albeit their differences. Every religion speaks of love and kindness as its foundation, how then can religion be blamed. Religion therefore is not to blame, but men. If it is men that have caused all the evil that exists in the world, it is men who will restore the world to its original beauty and harmony. To effect this restoration we therefore need men of faith, strength and courage to face those who have destroyed the peace in the world.

It is our duty to go wherever there is an outbreak of disease, hunger or wherever there is distress and mitigate the sufferings of the masses. We are not here to hold titles and attend conferences only. We must act, take it upon our shoulders to destroy the evils of this world.

We must feel the pain of those suffering, until we can’t bare to just watch anymore. We have to set ourselves to work, work for the good of others, to lessen the suffering and to eradicate misconceptions that religion is to blame for all the suffering. Work in harmony, work as one, it doesn’t matter what religion you are, your suffering is my suffering and when you smile then I shall rest. Till then do not sit idle, thinking that it will all be done in time later. Nothing will be done, unless you get up and take action.

“They alone live who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive.”

THE IDEA OF FAITH

Suyan Budhoo - Life Coach at DurbanThe idea of faith is often associated with belief or trust in a deity, doctrines or teachings of religion. Faith can be a synonym for hope, which is not necessarily based on proof.

The word faith as it appears in Wikipedia does not bear any connotation to man’s belief in himself. Faith in one’s self should be the first lesson we learn when we begin school, and yet for some strange reason that is never taught in any curriculum.

Business Coach JohannesburgA basic skill like confidence and an enquiring mind is left out of the curriculum completely and yet we demand from our children excellence and astuteness.How unfair we are in our expectations when we do not take the time to instil in our children the very thing that we demand from them.

Faith in God is necessary, however man should not be afraid to question certain rituals and rites that he is required to perform. We are after all living in a technological age where google is allegedly a better parent than real mothers and fathers.There are still some things better learnt through experience and love rather than a laptop or iphone and faith is one such topic.

Personal Executive CoachThe Old religions have taught religion through instilling fear in children. It was said that some ill fete will befall the person that did not comply with certain codes and who did not conduct themselves in a certain way. We should therefore encourage healthy discourse between children and adults when it comes to religion or faith. If we want religion to survive with and through technology we need to be flexible in our approach. A rigid religion with no explanations will suffer to survive this rapid changing world.

The new religion to have faith in ourselves is what appeals to the young masses of today. How can we know the world if we don’t know ourselves? This is what the major religions need to align their teachings with. Faith in one’s self, God and community is what will bring our world closer to peace and further away from hate crimes and war.
