Questions and answers on religion

AUM 1683-1695. Sri Chinmoy answered the following questions on religion at the United Nations on 16 January 1976.

Ms. Michelle Hein: Will man always need religion?

Sri Chinmoy: First of all, you have to know what kind of religion it is. If it is a man-made religion which is founded upon fear of God, then this religion will not and cannot last forever. But if the religion is nothing but a code of life for the illumination of the human in us and for the perfect manifestation of the divine in us, then that particular religion — if such a religion can ever exist — man shall always need.
