Sub : REASON AND RELIGION-3.
(Delivered in England)
By Swami Vivekananda.
Ref : Students duty to study, and not politics; Teachers duty to teach, and not politics, Today, few teachers and students take stupid lessons from some foolish political parties and leaders, such as Communists, Congress, and stupid bunch; Listen What Swami Vivekananda says -
The question is : - Is there a way out?
To put it in a more concrete form : - Is religion to justify itself by the discoveries of reason, through which every other science justifies itself?
Are the same methods of investigation, which we apply to sciences and knowledge outside, to be applied to the science of Religion?
In my opinion this must be so, and I am also of opinion that the sooner it is done the better.
If a religion is destroyed by such investigations, it was then all the time useless, unworthy superstition; and the sooner it goes the better.
I am thoroughly convinced that its destruction would be the best thing that could happen.
All that is dross will be taken off, no doubt, but the essential parts of religion will emerge triumphant out of this investigation.
Not only will it be made scientific — as scientific, at least, as any of the conclusions of physics or chemistry — but will have greater strength, because physics or chemistry has no internal mandate to vouch for its truth, which religion has.
