What Is A Prayer

Rating: 3.5

I am not conversant with the Bhagavad Gita,
Nor the Holy Koran.
I am not familiar with the Bible,
Nor understand the Buddhist Chants.

I respect the people who know and read them;
Make no fun of people who pray to a tree, stone or motif.
I love the people who care for others.
And learn from them.
I try not to hurt people

And value their thoughts, words, actions.

I have ‘Belief’ in my heart and ‘Faith’ in my prayer. I know that God resides in me; And so, have to be fair in all I do. Now- If you ask me what is religion? Who and where is God? how true your last lines- the real God is over and beyond all religions. it is the truth. we can never monopolize a God. thank you very much tony

He is not light, He is not beam, He is not earth nor sky He is not animal nor tree, He is not water nor cloud He is only one who created all these. He is only one who worthy to be worshipped

Very simple poem but opened many things to urge about existence practicing religion with prayer for god. Here is the thing when we worship some thing we should think Why we should worship and for what Here our point of view is worshipping is must who created us. and the things which are visible or comes our feelings are creations. so these things are not worthy to be worshipped. This is the purpose of life. And the book which conveys messages of God to human kind is must be followed up
