A religion is an organised collection of beliefs, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence. Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred histories that are intended to explain the meaning of life and/or 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. On the other hand, a spiritual system is focused on self-knowledge, and framed in a context of energy and consciousness. Spirituality is not about beliefs but about practices, specifically designed to develop a deeper understanding of ‘the self’. Learn about beliefs, cultural systems, and world views the smart way with religion and spirituality courses at CCE, The University of Sydney.
