- Chapter IV, Sholka 11 in the Bhagvad Geeta
In my opinion, there are two important aspects of our lives that this Shloka talks about:
For one, being religious essentially means having faith in a Supreme reality, its relatively unimportant how this idea of the Supreme is perceived within the context of different religions. Secondary, too, are the associated rites and rituals of a religion. And second, extrapolating from our first point therefore, faith is an inherently secular entity.
Secular people of faith are not around though. In the news, at least.
