    I prefer to avoid the question of religion because it usually sets up standards of behavior and instead prefer spirituality which is concerned with liberation free from judgements and expectations.

    I’ve posted various quotes about religion from famous people with differing views.

    You might agree with Deepak Chopras statement that “Religion is confining and imprisoning and toxic because it is based on ideology and dogma. But spirituality is redeeming and universal.”

    Thank you Ron for your thoughtful, insightful, and often hilarious sutras and deeply interesting commentary. I am so grateful for your meshing of the different belief systems to find common ground. I was delighted to see the op ed from the NY Times by the Dalai Lama, my personal hero. I loved it so much, I posted in on my web site.

    Good work Ron. Thank you again. Shanta
