Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life – Buddha


Death is one of the things which man has not been able to overcome or conquer. Humanity is not sure of what lies ahead in life after death. Science does not give a conclusive explanation for life after death. This mystery has made man believe in the spiritual part of him. The truth is that man is not just flesh and blood, but there is a soul in each one of us. The soul is considered the immortal part. According to this Buddha’s quote, living life without acknowledging our spiritual being (the soul) is vanity.

I like the religion that teaches liberty, equality, and fraternity – A.R  Ambedkar
