Title: Let's Be Practical

Synopsis: There is a perception that religious or spiritual life is not practical. But Religion, especially Vedanta, teaches highest practicality, without diluting the ideal in the least. In our approach to religion, we have to be immensely practical. We must learn to separate real from appearance, important from unimportant, helpful from harmful. There is a place for rationality and going beyond it. The lives and teachings of the great masters of Vedanta, especially of the comparatively modern exponents like Vivekananda, provide how the highest truths of life are to be brought into practice. Another wonderful idea to understand is that all main religions, while they are different in externals, they lead to the same goal.
