What was a strategy used in the past to resolve very hard conflicts in the society?
In olden times, when in any region, the people were sunk in fear or anxiety, or when the sources of joy and contentment ran dry, they traced the cause for the calamity to some fault or failure in the worship offered to God in the temples of that area. They sought to identify these mistakes and correct them, so that they could have inner peace. They believed that the crisis could be controlled through these means. Such acts are now bundled together and called superstitions, and are cast aside. This is not superstition at all. The ancients grasped the supreme truth only after personally experiencing its validity.
