XXV Not more surely does grass bend before the wind Than the masses to the will and example of leaders; Therefore think out well what thou wouldst teach, And beware of unlearned meditation; For undigested studies can be of use to none, And thought unassisted by learning is perilous. This relational matriarchal theory is based on the ideology of Umunne, those who share the spirit of common motherhood, who eat out of one pot, and are bound by the prohibition of Ibenne, a taboo of same blood where love and not selfinterest rules ….

Augustine, following the interpretation of Lactantius. [13] [14] The medieval usage alternates with order in designating bonded communities like those of monastic orders: "we hear of the 'religion' of the Golden Fleece, of a knight 'of the religion of Avys '". [15] In the ancient and medieval world, the etymological Latin root religio was understood as an individual virtue of worship, never as doctrine, practice, or actual source of knowledge. [16] The modern concept of "religion" as an abstraction which entails distinct sets of beliefs or doctrines is a recent invention in the English language since such usage began with texts from the 17th century due to the splitting of Christendom during the Protestant Reformation and more prevalent colonization or globalization in the age of exploration which involved contact with numerous foreign and indigenous cultures with non-European languages. [16] It was in the 17th century that the concept of "religion" received its modern shape despite the fact that ancient texts like the Bible, the Quran, and other ancient sacred texts did not have a concept of religion in the original languages and neither did the people or the cultures in which these sacred texts were written. [17] For example, the Greek word threskeia, which was used by Greek writers such as Herodotus and Josephus and is found in texts like the New Testament, is sometimes translated as "religion" today, however, the term was understood as "worship" well into the medieval period. [17] In the Quran, the Arabic word din is often translated as "religion" in modern translations, but up to the mid-1600s translators expressed din as "law". [17] Even in the 1st century AD, Josephus had used the Greek term ioudaismos, which some translate as "Judaism" today, even though he used it as an ethnic term, not one linked to modern abstract concepts of religion as a set of beliefs. [17] It was in the 19th century that the terms "Buddhism", "Hinduism", "Taoism", and "Confucianism" first emerged. [16] [18] Throughout its long history, Japan had no concept of "religion" since there was no corresponding Japanese word, nor anything close to its meaning, but when American warships appeared off the coast of Japan in 1853 and forced the Japanese government to sign treaties demanding, among other things, freedom of religion, the country had to contend with this Western idea. [18] According to the philologist Max Müller in the 19th century, the root of the English word "religion", the Latin religio, was originally used to mean only "reverence for God or the gods, careful pondering of divine things, piety " (which Cicero further derived to mean "diligence"). [19] [20] Max Müller characterized many other cultures around the world, including Egypt, Persia, and India, as having a similar power structure at this point in history.

If you find yourself thinking about something, even Taoism, let it go and refocus on your breathing. They no long rely on authorized dogma and leadership as in the past, but have the intellectual capacity to gather their own religious information and live their religious lives independently. Give less heed to thine ear than to the eye, Nor obstruct the future to provide for the present. The renowned Thai monk Buddhadasa Bhikkhu (1906–1993) was a great critic of capitalism, teaching that it increases egoism and selfishness, thus causing distress both to the individual and to society.

In conflict with things or in harmony with them, they pursue their course to the end, with the speed of a galloping horse which cannot be stopped;—is it not sad? In other words, humanity does not manifest its purpose of existence. However after the Second World War, religious organizations were given the freedom to operate independently. Despite this, in Jharkhand, revivals of age old ancestral religious and cultural behaviour patterns have been occurring amongst tribal communities, which have been consolidating their stand to preserve their cultural ethos and separate identity.

Brief Description: These three relatively short works are important books for Shinto, the indigenous religion of Japan. Frazer's very nineteenth-century theory (, 1st ed. 1890) makes the physical world the subject of religion. The primaeval history of Genesis, on which the whole scheme of Christianity is made to depend, seems to have passed clean away from the memory of Hebrews " (p. 543, 589); for many scholars do not accept as evidence such interjectory texts as Hosea viii. 12, so easily interpolated and opposed to the general tone of the scriptures.

The group's leadership dictates how members should think, act, and feel. I have heard the Master say that to seek for the means of conducting his undertakings so that his success in carrying them out may be complete, and how by the employment of a little strength great results may be obtained, is the way of the sage. Through the energetic initiative of creativity, i.e. through Te, the inner and inexpressible nature of Tao nevertheless appears in manifest forms. Among some groups such as ISKCON (Hare Krishna), it is accepted as the primary scripture, and they refer to it as Vedic.
