Where Do Religions Go? - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

The Prophet was born
to make people free;
To him people became slaves!

The Buddha was there
to denounce idol worship;
His idols people worship!

The Saints of the Jain appeared
to teach the subjects, ahimsa;
They forgot it on their rivals.

Jesus was born
to lead the people to service,
Which they do to pull other faiths.

Seers preach the Vedas
to annihilate ego of each,
except theirs that they grow.

Where do people take religions?
