But it doesn’t mean that all people will follow that path. In a way, a person feels like that because there are very few people who go deep to understand the concept of religion. And without understanding the concept of religion, there have always been debates and they will always call it ‘blind faith’; going to the temple or going to a church. But a very new concept has emerged now, called ‘Transforming Pilgrim Centres of The World into Divine Knowledge Centres of The World’. So a mandir, masjid or girja-ghar, whatever you call them, they are originally knowledge centres. Because of misconceptions, people think that these places are meant to be for only rituals. But worshipping Knowledge Divine is the ultimate goal. Basically, what is advised in Indian context is that all places of worship are not created by some Maharaja or king or an emperor. Building huge palaces on the bank of Ganga or Godavari does not make it a pilgrim centres. So, basically we have to clearly understand that pilgrim centres are originally knowledge centres. So, the question is to go deep and understand these concepts. Nowadays, the world over - I have just come back from Holland - there is a new concept emerging that speaks about OM= mc2.It is a new equation that says OM=mc2.
