Faith makes up life: Meyhar Bhasin
I believe in karma and that whatever you do comes back to you. I?m always careful about leading my life in a way that my conscience doesn?t bother me. There are times, of course, when I do get angry and wonder why certain bad things happen to me.Updated: Apr 04, 2003 12:06 IST
I’m not the kind of person who can be called extremely religious but for me, God is all around. Everytime I cross a Gurudwara, I pay my respects. For that matter, I do the same everytime I cross a church or temple as well.
I say my prayers regularly, every morning when I wake up and every night before I go to bed. My family is very religious especially my mom but there’s never been any pressure on me to do anything.
Most of the times, people learn to do what they feel is right when they grow up. The same applies for me and I don’t think following rules and regulations will in anyway make the belief in God stronger.
I believe in karma (rebirth) and that whatever you do comes back to you. So, I’m always very careful about leading my life in such a way that my conscience doesn’t bother me. There are times, of course, when I do get angry and wonder why certain bad things happen to me. But then after a time when I realise that it’s all a part and parcel of life, then I put that behind me.
There is a lot of pooja paath done at home during festivals and on Gur Purab (where we pay homage to all our gurus) and I participate wholly in that. When I was in school, I used to do a lot of work in the Gurudwara such as feeding the hungry and cleaning dishes there. For us it’s a part of growing up that we cannot disassociate ourselves from.
As a child, everything has so much depth and meaning but slowly you come to realise that life is all made up on your own beliefs and a strong faith in yourself. God will always be there in times of trouble so you can reach out to him.
