God Love All Beings Quotes from the World Religion
A Proper Understanding of Religion
It is essential to have proper understanding of what religion is all about. The Chinese word for religion is 宗教 (Zong-jiao). The character 宗 (Zong) means ‘main,’ ‘important,’ or ‘noble and esteemed.’ The character 教 (Jiao) means ‘education,’ ‘teachings,’ or ‘actions that serve to moralise, civilise or enlighten humanity.’ Put together, 宗教 (Zong-jiao) means ‘the main education,’ ‘the important teachings,’ and ‘the noble, esteemed actions that moralise, civilise, or enlighten people.’ Observing closely every major religion’s sacred scriptures and history of education, we can see that the principal contents of religious teachings can be classified into four categories: morality, ethics, causality and sacred wisdom.
