The Samskaras of Different Religions

Different religions like different people possess their various samskaras or tendencies. Some religions, like certain people, have a Samskara of exclusivism or violence. These samskaras reflect deep-seated attitudes and behavioral patterns created by centuries of religious activity. Religious samskaras are reinforced by the lives of the millions of people who have followed these religions and are deeply embedded in the collective unconscious. 

Christian and Islamic samskaras have the imprint of the history of these religions with their missionary fervor, martyrdom, holy wars, inquisitions, evangelical movements, and political imperialism. On the theological level they reflect the samskaras of sin, redemption, heaven and hell, conversion seeking activity, and a monotheism that does not accept other forms of religious belief.

This weight of samskaras cannot easily change, must less disappear by pretending that it is all a misunderstanding of something originally more tolerant. These samskaras will eventually assert themselves when the circumstances or the stress arises. To promote such religions as they are gives credence to these samskaras and insures their perpetuation.
