Spirituality what is your definition?Spirituality the dictionary meaning is the quality of being concerned with the human spirit and soul as opposed to material or physical things. But people often join this word with religion and even to religious fanatism where this word is entirely different.
For me, spirituality is reading about the true faith and learning its literature, neither I believe in God completely nor do I deny his existence I just like to study about mythology and mythological characters and their life and this type of reading helps me to find the peace of mind.
I like to listen to stories of gods and goddess from my grandmother even though I have read them many times and seen them on television too but my grandmother tells them in a different manner which she has heard from her elders.
Sometimes I visit temples too but i.e., because my family members ask me to go but I am not much concerned to the rituals and worship performed in the temples, however, I find a different kind of peace in temples even the chanting of mantras takes me to a different zone. Till now my spirituality is limited to these things only.
But in this era of modernization people often consider being spiritual to being illiterate or too lacking of the rational mind and scientific temper and keep denying their spiritual heritage they have got from their ancestors. But I still want to stay connected to this literature of mythology and religion so I raised this thread to know what others think about this aspect of life.
