How every individual perceives spirituality and religion is different. Now, if we talk about a basic concept, Religion is a set of rituals, traditions or religious practices. Practices that are followed by our ancestors till date. Whereas, Spirituality is a form of emotional feeling that is enjoyed by one who is connected to something larger than life.

After a short introduction, let’s throw some more light on the two concepts and bring out a few interesting gems. Religion is followed by a group of people. Whereas, Spirituality is the practice that can be done by people from any race.

Moreover, the concept Spirituality and Religion is interrelated and used interchangeably. The concept is indeed about the self awakening through the path you choose. It can be a spiritual journey for you or a religious path of certain beliefs and rituals you follow.Let’s travel into the world of Spirituality and Religious faith and try to reach our destination that is awakening.
