Question: What is the original significance of religion?

Sri Chinmoy: The original significance of religion was to have man see, feel and consciously dedicate himself to the existence of the One in the existence of the many. There are many countries, many faiths, many creeds, many sects. Religion has to make a synthesis and combine them all. Among all countries religion has to establish a sense of oneness. The length and breadth of the world have to sing only the song of oneness. This is why religion came into being.
