Hello everyone, today I am telling you about how man in todays world is becoming so much materialistic that he has forgot about his spiritual needs.
We all know that the satisfaction of man's physical and material needs is not enough. Man is the only animal who has spiritual needs as well. Without the satisfaction of these,he cannot develop his personality or realise his whole being.
It is religion that satisfies his spiritual urges. Human belief in God and the presence of spiritual world controlling this material world affords him a high ideal. So in order to achieve this, he conforms to lofty spiritual principles.
In a society where religion prevails, the spirit of sacrifice and the sense of achievement reign supreme. This can never be possible in a materialistic regime. Here the purposes for which men undergo sacrifice are low in comparison with the higher ideal of realising the glory of God in actual practice.
But unfortunately, the present day world is becoming too materialistic that man's spiritual need are ignored. Consequently his energies are being diverted into dangerous channels and he is degenerating into lawless criminal or a self-centered brute. The loss of religious sense is one of the most serious weakness of our modern civilization and involves real danger to spiritual vitality.
It is devoutly hoped that spiritual values will dominate the world in near future because a civilization without religion is unstable and aimless. With the dawn of a new era, religion will have permanent place of honour.
