In this video we look at how certain religions do not provide the means nor encourage one to have their own direct and personal spiritual realizations and experiences, but to cling merely to the institution itself for deliverance, which is when they can become like a self-policing institution or dogma that keeps a person in line and from looking at any other spiritual path through the use of guilt, fear, intimidation, and even violence. Thus, a person hesitates to tread outside the accepted norms of his religion, or even to look at deeper levels of spiritual knowledge if it comes from other sources. But why not look at other spiritual processes if they give more clarity, or more answers to various questions about life? In the Vedic system, you have full freedom to inquire or investigate various levels of spiritual knowledge and still be considered on the Vedic path. It gives you the means and freedom to attain your own spiritual realizations. For this reason, Vedic culture is the last bastion of deep spiritual truth, and the means to reach the highest levels of spiritual perception known to humanity.
