Swami Vivekananda on religion

In trying to practice religion, eighty percent of people turn cheat and about fifteen percent go mad; only the remaining five attain the immediate knowledge of the infinite Truth.

Surprised!! Shocked? 

May be you will surprised and shocked or may be you think this how the world behaves. Surely  this thought might demotivate and depress you to pursue the religion.You might decide not to practice it with such negative environment.

But there is no more miserable excuse for inaction than our claim to be weak and unworthy. We are not here to do nothing. He asked us to do something at least, to make some little effort, even if we are old, sick, burdened with dependents and and worldly duties, hopelessly poor or hopelessly rich. He reminds us that true renunciation is mental not necessarily physical.

Practice religion from your heart, mind not necessarily physically.
