Need to have more respect to our religion!

I believe in H. H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Once I had been to his Bangalore ashram. We call him Guruji with love. Guruji asked one simple question that day, "How many of us have read the Gita?" There were 3500 to 4000 people were seating, unfortunately very few people raised their hands! Then Guruji made us understand, why should we read the Gita? From that day I started reading Gita.

Actually Hindu people do not have enough respect towards their religion. We should see how Muslim or Christian people's respect and commitment to their religion. Most of all of them have read the Quran or The Bible at least once. It is really very nice thing. I appreciate them. They are really respecting Allah and Jesus Christ, and they do read the Quran and the bible often.

One more thing, I noticed, most of Hindu people often make joke on Hindu god or goddess. Many times I saw people play a drama and joke on The Ramayana or The Mahabharata, to make people laugh. I never saw any Muslim or Christian people making a joke on Allah or Jesus. What a great respect they have for God! And we, Hindus, often take God’s name as a Joke! We should learn from Muslims and Christians.

Need to have more respect to this great religion. In fact everyone should have respect for all religions. Don't make joke out of it!
