Role of Faith by L Ramaswamy

Practical Spirituality – 03: Role of Faith by L Ramaswamy
Faith is the basis of all our experiences and relationships. A mind constantly in doubt remains ever agitated. What exactly is faith? Is faith blind by definition? What is the role of intellect vis-à-vis faith?
Pursuit of unknown begins with faith and culminates in knowledge. In Sanatana Dharma, unknown God is not an object of speculation, but a subjective realization. Hence we are encouraged to be seekers of Truth rather than merely be blind believers of God. A deeper faith in the Reality based on scriptures coupled with a determination to know It through personal experience is termed Shraddha.
