Religion and Politics Should not be Mixed

By Satyanarayana Dasa: Many times I read that religion and politics should be kept separate. They should not be mixed. Here in India it is a common feeling of the educated gentry. Usually such people are afraid that if politicians subscribe to a particular religion, they will oppress followers of other religions. There have been examples of such oppression and atrocities in the past where a ruling party crushed or ostracized members of a religion not followed by them.

    When you are in a dream state, the buddhi does not discriminate. It does not stop you from acting on which is forbidden. What you are not allowed to do when you are awake, you do in your dream happily. When you sleep and do it, your tension is gone. That is what buddhi is doing. Whereas jiva remains untouched by this state.
