Superstition is any blind (or even biased)
What makes you blind is your need or greed.
It makes you exploiter or exploited. It makes
you arrogant or meek. It makes
you fanatic ruler or follower.
People usually associate blind beliefs with
illiteracy and simplicity.
But worst superstitions can spring from
People held in high esteem as “well read” and
“well informed” “intelligent and progressive!”
Petty selfishness is the problem that can
make your thinking not merely blind but
biased; (whether so called scientific or
otherwise) and emotions or feelings also blind
(and biased)! Thus, actions of a petty person
lead to blind (biased, sectarian and unjust)
intellectual or emotional actions, which are
disastrous for himself or herself and if they are
in decision making or other crucial positions,
then to the whole society!
So appreciate a point here; that; the world
requires the inner growth and freedom from
pettiness through NAMASMARAN most
urgently; than any thing else including mere
school or college education!
