What spirituality can do and cannot doSeveral questions about Nature, or God or some supernatural power have been posed by a big section of intellectuals. We really do not have any answers to complex questions. For example, in Manudharma, it has reportedly been mentioned that it is vital to follow the caste system. This is a big minus in terms of a casteless society. However, I do not know the finer details.
However, in several communities, particularly in the Hindu religion, spirituality does help to calm down the mind; it does help individuals to take a wider and philosophical view of the entire reality around them. It helps them to stay focussed and to donate money and their wealth for certain noble causes.
While all this is positive, the practice of spirituality also has certain weaknesses. Overdoing certain rituals with a castiest orientation does not help -- it leads to more isolation and more hatred. Similarly, everyone should participate in functions conducted at temples and promote harmony. For example, even the Tamil Brahmins participate in the Amman temple festivals but do not stay when animal sacrifice is done. The particular authorities give due respect to the feelings of the Brahmins and do not force them at all. In fact, generous donations are made to enable groups to feed thousands of devotees during these festivals and some temporary bazaars spring up all over, helping the economy flourish at least to some extent.
