One thought on “Priests and Religion

  1. A priest is a teacher that teaches the sadhana to connect with God. Teacher bridges you and the knowledge. Often ignorance (darkness) stands inbetween us and knowledge and we need a teacher to dispel the darkness. Similarly a priest with the help of scriptures dispels some of the superstitious beliefs that often accompany a sincere but ignorant seeker. My 2 cents.
