This question was asked by a little girl on a television show. There are so many dos and don’ts, and rules to follow, without adequate explanations. Most parents don’t have the answers but rules have been followed throughout generations. When I was young, I had to eat vegetarian food on Mondays, Thursdays, and on full moon days. Today, I am completely vegetarian out of my free will, as I understand the benefits. People cannot be forced to enjoy religion, they have to follow out of their own free will. I had to wear a suit on Sundays to go to church. I never understood why God would only bless me if I wore a suit. Why were shoes allowed in church but not in temples? Why was Latin used in Christianity and Sanskrit in Hinduism? I do not know either language. I never understood the rules of religion. It is so easy with spirituality—my religion, my rules, my timings, the language of my heart, my outfits, and no reading or singing. Now this type of religion is fun. There is no guilt and no fear of lighting striking my head. — Satish Daryanani
