Religion, according to Gandhi, is more or less, a way of life, and as such is the personal concern of the individual who has to choose his way of life. But, if an  individual has the freedom to take to the religious way of his own liking, he must  also have a tolerance and a respect for the points of view that others might have  chosen for themselves. Therefore, he recommends that the attitude towards  different religions must be one of tolerance and respect. In his own case it is much  more than that. Although sometimes an impression is created that he has a special  liking for Hinduism, his attitude towards other religions is one of reverence. He was  born in a Hindu family and so the way and the atmosphere in which he grew and  developed implanted in his mind the elements and tenets of Hinduism. Naturally,  the Gita and the Ramayana became his two invariable companions.  

But he made a study of many great religious scriptures—of the Bible and the  Quran and he came under the influence of a number of saints and religious  teachers. All these led him to believe that different religions are the different ways of  apprehending the Truth. 

Gandhi believes that every religion contains good precepts and noble teachings, he also finds that some of the interpretations and commentaries have degraded religion and distorted it. He also finds that almost every religion has given rise to some fanatic and unreasonable practices. Therefore, his conviction is that all religions are some  good as well as bad, basically good-good in conceiving its ideal, but bad in giving  rise to hatred, crusades and fanaticism. The experience of communal riots in India  strengthened his belief. Therefore, he suggests that religions-historical religions must not be allowed to cross the limits of reason of 'sober reason', as he calls it. He is convinced that this element of rationality' will be able to bring about, what can be  II asid  called, a fellowship of all religions' or, 'the kingdom of God'-a Christian expression  which he also approvingly uses on various occasions. 

5. Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow : 4x5=20 

The literal meaning of the Sanskrit word Yoga/ Yuj is 'Yoke' which is joining of individual's soul energy with that of God (Supreme Soul). Yoga allows us to look  inward to nurture spirit and stay healthy in all spheres, as well as actively enjoy the  life by balancing emotions. Commonly perceived benefits include reduction of  stress, weight management, resolving psychosomatic diseases, strengthen immune  system, etc. 

Interestingly, Yoga is universal with no relation with caste, sex, religion, region, etc. Its daily practice is essential to understand the ongoing linkages in body and mind,  as Yoga is evolutionary process to reach higher consciousness. 

But the success is still limited. Only few educational institutes have promoted this as daily activity. People indulge in Yoga only when they suffer some ailments.  Some  Limited set of people are doing it from childhood in schools or as part of family  tradition. Its actual benefits at the deeper levels in the form of attaining peace and  everlasting happiness remain largely untouched. 

Traditional Yoga techniques are being modified to suit modern lifestyles. Even medical practitioners advise their patients to opt for Yoga in their routine along with  medicines. Now due to rising risks of diabetes, heart diseases, cancer, etc., number of Yoga Ashramas and studios are opening all around. Stress makes our bodyparts stiff and even teenagers find difficulty in bending and picking up things, touching toes, etc. 
 
Health benefits of doing Yoga are immense for our physical body. For instance, this  gradually loosens up our tight hamstrings, hips, etc., and makes them flexible enough. This improves our postures and prevents us from issues of alignment and  pain in legs, back, and other parts. Yoga is the most reliable and cheapest source to  strengthen our muscles and bones which averts chances of continuous injuries,  arthritis, neck pains, etc. In fact, this supports our joints by maintaining cartilage.  Face wrinkles also fade away with regular practice making us more young and  attractive. Our body remains in shape.  

We know that spinal discs are our survival kit, but cannot stay in perfect shape  without movement. Many backward, forward and twist Asanas such as  Dhanurasana (Bow Pose), Adho Mukha Shvanasana (Downward-Facing Dog Pose),  Ardha Matsyendrasana (Half Lord of the Fishes Pose), respectively, are blessings to  lengthen and strengthen spine. Yoga particularly improves body's blood circulation  which further assists in normalizing blood pressure and hypertension. In effect,  mone  OTI  levels of stress hormone called cortisol are drastically reduced. Good hormones namely dopamine, serotonin, etc., then flow in abundance which are essential to  absorb food nutrients (vitamins, iron, calcium, etc.).
