Dialogue 16 - San Diego, California,USA - 27 February 1974
How am I to inquire into religion?
What is religion, what is God, what is immortality, what is beauty? Can the mind put aside totally the structure of thought with regard to religion?
Can the mind be free of the authority of another, however divine or not divine? Can the mind put away everything that man has taught, invented, imagined about religion, God? Can wisdom be sought through a book, a teacher, from another, through sacrifice, torture, renunciation?
Can the mind be free of all the things that are born of fear, desire, pleasure?
Your thoughts, speech and behaviour are the very essence of religion. If they are not, religion can't exist.
