RELIGION AND SPIRITUALITY : THE SEARCH FOR UNIVERSALITY

In this regard we must reexamine the Eastern idea of religion - which is not religion as commonly known in the West - but a way of truth and natural law, dharma. Dharma is religion or the pursuit of enlightenment by how we live, not merely by what we may say or believe. It is religion as a striving to attune ourselves with cosmic law, not the imposition of a belief or ideology made up by human beings or by the God we have created in our image. The time of belief-oriented religions is coming to an end but the age of dharma is beginning.

Religion in the coming age will be very different than what it is today. The predominant world religions will break down into smaller groups wherein a particular religious identity is no longer important or will even be regarded as regressive. People all over the world will begin to experiment with different religions just as we now do with different forms of art or science.

Asia, Africa and South America will experience a revival in the coming century applying modern technology but along with their own cultural, religious and spiritual bases. This may present the Western world with a scientifically and economically more advanced third world following older non-Western spiritual traditions. This will be accompanied by a greater adaptation of Asian meditational traditions in the Western world. Then the whole barrier of East and West will disappear.
