Once a woman came to Acharya Tulsi. Having bowed down to him, she said, ”Gurudev”! I am confronted with a difficult problem and now look to you for its solution. When Acharya Shree asked her to narrate her problem she said, “I am oppressed with the thought that I find little or no time to perform my religious duties “Do you not have a desire in your heart to perform religious acts?” asked Acharya Tulsi. “I do have an ardent desire for it,” said the woman, “but the difficulty is that I can hardly find any time to say my prayer as most of my time is spent in cooking food, attending to children and solving numerous other problems relating to household affairs. But my only satisfaction is that I harbour no ill will against anybody and lead a good life. I do not pick quarrels with other people nor do I take delight in talling lies. I also refrain from resorting to beating children and try to deal well by the people who come in contact with me. I am quite content so far as these things concern me but what is disconcerting to me is that I cannot devote time to perform religious duties.” Acharya Shree smiled as he listened to her words and asked, “Is refraining from indulging oneself in discord not an act of religion? Is telling truth not an act of religion? Is behaving well towards others not an act of religion? As a matter of fact all these acts constitute religion. Then, why do you think that you are not practising religion. Is putting religion into practice not the greatest religion?” Once some religious leaders had gathered together and began to harp on their religious experiences. A religious man who was listening to the tales narrated by other people was encouraged to relate his own experiences. He stood up and began to talk about his own experiences concerning religion. He said, “I have been a lover of religion since my childhood and have always been surrounded by people who have faith in religion. I have seen many ups and downs in a long journey of my life and had to struggle hard against many a problem. However, I am glad to say that in spite of the adverse circumstances I stuck to the principles of religion.” His words added to the curiosity of the people. They began to look towards him with all eagerness. The congenial atmosphere of the assembly encouraged him with all the more. He said with greater degree of firmness, “Brothers: I had sometimes to commit even murders under inevitable circumstances but I did not deviate from the path of religion. Sometime I had to commit dacoities as well but I was stead fast to the norms of religion throughout,” The listeners were taken aback at the discovery of his religion. A man interrupted him and asked, “Dear Sir! what is your religion after all which remained unaffected even when you committed dacoitics and murders?” The speaker who was almost swept off his feet by the flow of his emotions was not able to realise the mood of the people. He replied in the same fervour, “You are all eager to know about my religion. Then listen! I have never taken food at the hands of any untouchable so far.” The unique definition of religion propounded by the gentleman hushed the audience for a while. They were all stunned. Given above are the two different pictures of religion being depicted in the religious world of today. The former is a picture of self-delusion, The reason is that the true image of religion laying emphasis on putting religion into practice has been obscured by ceremonial acts. Hence a common man has come to regard rituals or worship as true religion. Whenever he forgets or does not find time to observe these rituals, he begins to think that he is lost to the path of religion. The latter is a picture of religious stupidity. That has come into usage due to our mistake in considering rituals pertaining to a particular period as an eternal concept of religion. If we wish to cure society of its ills, we shall have to about a change in both the images of religion portrayed above. It is possible only when we bring begin conduct to attach utmost importance to and righteous way of life. The Anuvrat Movement has made a new beginning in this respect. It is making an earnest endeavour to remove inconstancy of religion and minimise the gap between two personalities of one individual emerging from religion of practice and religion of rituals. Its main slogan is that he alone who is pure in thought and conduct is entitled to perform puja and prayer. How can a man be given the right to wave a light before an idol of God without lighting a flame of morality? Morality is what we call the purity of heart and moral behaviour emanates from a pure heart. He whose heart is not pure is not worthy of being called a religious man.
