Q: Guruji, what are your views on religion and how to become a global human being.

Sri Sri: I always say the religion is like the banana skin and the essence/spirituality is the banana. In any religion there are three things: practices, values and symbols. Values of all religions are the same. But the symbols are diverse. One should accept the diversity and not get alienated because of it. Diversity is the very nature of existence. It is like that Al Qaeda gentleman. He is not aware of other religions. Heaven is right here. When we love we nurture and save. If a child learns a bit about all the 10 religions there will be an end to terrorism. We don't teach them that. We nurture narrow boundaries. We have to break that and give our children global wisdom. Teach about all religions, like Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Taoism, etc
