Religion as a study discipline

The belief in Powers that control human fate is called Religion. In general terms we can say Religion is the human pursuit for understanding the sacred or holy. Religion, which is completely a human activity, can be expressed in thought (logical term), in action (realistic term) and in fellowship (shared term).  The multifaceted religious lexis including stories, myths, literature, histories, rituals, doctrines, ethical values, literature, poetry, and institutional developments of many traditions both from past and present encompasses the subject matter for the formal study of religion.
