Religious vanity ..

( a shared doc..)

In an ancient temple, a number of pigeons lived happily on roof top.

 When the renovation of the temple began for the annual temple feast the pigeons relocated themselves to a Church nearby. 

The existing pigeons in the Church accommodated the new comers very well.

Christmas was nearing and the Church was given a facelift, All the pigeons had to move out and look for another place. 

They were fortunate to find a place in a Mosque nearby, The pigeons in the Mosque welcomed them happily. 

It was Ramadan time and the Mosque was repainted, All the pigeons now came to the same ancient temple. 

One day the pigeons on top found some communal clashes below in a market square. 

The baby pigeon asked the mother pigeon 
"Who are these people ?

The mother replied; they are "Human beings". 

The baby asked, 
But why are they fighting with each other...?

The mother said "These human beings going to temple are called 'Hindus' and the people going to Church are called 'Christians' and the people going to Mosque are called 'Muslims'. 

The Baby pigeon asked, "Why is it so? When we were in the Temple we were called Pigeons, when we were in the church we were called Pigeons and when we were in the Mosque, we were called Pigeons. Similarly they should be called just 'Human beings' wherever they go"?

The mother Pigeon said, 
'You and me and our Pigeon friends have experienced God and that's why we are living here in a highly elevated place peacefully. 

These people are yet to experience God. 

Hence they are living below us and fighting and killing each other.

Many of us Should Have Thinking as Pigeons 😊 but in spite of all the blessings and grace we have received, we act as human beings !!


The problem with the world is that we are led by "false" spiritual leaders who are very selfish and cannot think out of the box, are intolerant and are so heartless. These spiritual leaders instead of making the people think in broader terms , make them think very narrowly. They are able to manipulate and control the dumb minded believers for their selfish needs, like building bigger and bigger religious establishments, more and more religious establishments so that the spiritual leaders and their cronies can continue to live a life of luxury and exploit the people of the world.

And we the followers give ourselves up to being exploited by these spiritual leaders.

Beware the "false" spiritual leaders, the crooks who come to you in the name of God, most of them do not wish to serve humanity, instead want to exploit the people for their personal needs.

Let us be like the pigeons, not let ourselves be fooled by the leaders, fighting and killing each other.

Our spiritual leaders would definitely go unemployed if we follow the commandments to live peacefully on earth with every other living being, because we are all from that Supreme power called God, the God which these selfish spiritual leaders have apportioned to themselves for serving their personal and selfish needs.

How shameful that our spiritual leaders cutting across religions are getting so cunning and are not able to get out of their limited mindset and crooked thinking.
