There is deep-rooted spiritualism in Indic religions like Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, and Jainism, which originated in India. A standard view that floats around is being spiritual and religious are two separate entities. However, upon closer observation, it is beautifully intertwined that religion and spirituality need each other to co-exist, especially in India.
Somebody who might be overtly leaning towards religion may find it taxing to see many religious practices’ hidden meaning. A person’s blind beliefs or limited exposure to cognitive higher-order thinking may sometimes misrepresent Indic religions for coming across as rigid.
Likewise, suppose somebody is caught in the realm of spirituality but lacks direction and proper practices that will best enhance spiritual practices. Sometimes the pseudo approaches lead to frustrations due to the lack of the desired outcome. In that case, it can often lead to an air of general vagueness.
The intricate intersectionality between spirituality and Indic religions comes alive when one can objectively look at both.
