Key Points of this Article:

  1. Spiritual Person will listen to everything, accept everything, and find the goodness in everything.
  2. Religious person will just be stubborn that only his views and idealogies are correct, and he will just see the bad things in everything.
  3. If you choose to pursue Spiritualty, be ready for it, your Guru will come choose you. Gurus choose their Disciple.
  4. In the pursuit of Spiritualty, if you fall in the hands of Bogus persons, then you may start having hatred towards Spirituality, and will come back to the normal life of illusion.
  5. Guruve Sharanam.

Difference between Spiritual Person and Religious Person:

This article has been transcribed from the YouTube video by Bramma Sri Mahavishnu, and the following is the YouTube link.

A spiritual person will appreciate all the good things, will hear out all the things without denying them. Whereas, a religious minded person will be a narrow minded person who will be denying things blindly, and will be stubborn about his perceptions without analysing them. This is the main difference between a Spiritual person, and a Religious Minded person. If a Spiritual Person says that we should not share the Spiritual experiences in public, then he will be totally aware of why it should not be shared, and what will happen if one shares it, the good and bad consequences of it, and all. On the other hand, a religious minded person will not know anything about it.

In the pursuit of Spirituality, if you get into the hands of Bogus persons, then you may start hating Spirituality, and may come back to the normal life of illusion


If you are truly pursuing spirituality from your heart, then your Guru will come choose you. Gurus will choose their disciples. Wait for that to happen. Guruve Sharanam
