RELIGIOUS IMAGES AND PHOTOS


A religion is an organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence. Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred stories that attempt to explain the meaning of life to explain the origin of life or the universe. From their beliefs about the cosmos and human nature, people derive morality, ethics, religious laws or a preferred lifestyle. By some estimates, there are about 4,200 religions in the world.

Many religions may have organized behaviors, clergy, a definition of what constitutes adherence or membership, holy places and scriptures. The practice of a religion may also include rituals, sermons, commemoration or veneration of a deity, gods or goddesses, sacrifices, festivals, feasts, trance, initiations, funerary services, matrimonial services, meditation, prayer, music, art , dance or other aspects of human culture. Religions may also contain mythology.

The word religion is sometimes used interchangeably with faith or belief system, sometimes a set of duties. However, religion differs from private belief in that it is "eminently social."
