Faith

“Faith can move mountains”, they say; but

what if faith is blind!

Can’t faith be reason based?

Can’t faith be non intrusive?

Can’t faith be non compulsive?

Can’t faith be non corruptible?

Can’t faith bring hearts together?

The picture is completely different as projected in the social media and elsewhere. We see people trying to increase the followers of their faith or killing in the name of faith. Faith has become a powerful tool for politicians and a few so called social elements to vent up anger amongst the followers and make them go on a destructive path. But is this Faith? is the question, we all need to answer…

My readers, I leave it upto you to think.

We are part of the scientific and reason based generation. To ask questions, to find answers is the way of our ancestors.

One may not have faith in God, but one needs to have faith in oneself. It is impossible to live without having faith on someone or something.

Think

Will end with what Gujarati poet Digant Parikh has written in his poem about Faith. It might answer many of the questions raised above.

ખૂદા ને પામવાનું નામ શ્રદ્ધા

દુઆઓ માંગવાનું નામ શ્રદ્ધા….

ધીરજની ગાંસડી માથે મૂકીને

દુ:ખોને ઢાંકવાનું નામ શ્રદ્ધા…

તમે આવો નહીં ને તે છતાંયે

તમારા આવવાનું નામ શ્રદ્ધા…

સંબંધો તુટે એનું નામ શંકા

સંબંધો બાંધવાનું નામ શ્રદ્ધા…

Translation:

Faith helps us find God,

Faith helps in supplication!!!

With loads of patience in life,

Faith can help us cover our woes…

Even if we cannot see you around,

Faith helps believe in Omnipresent…

Ties breaks up in peril,

Faith builds them up again…

  1. जीवन को जीने के लिए, जो उर्जा की जरूरत होती है, अपने हर कार्य, अपने विचारो से करने के लिए, जो शक्ति की जरूरत होती है, मेरे लिए, वो शक्ति का नाम श्रद्धा है।
