1. Mid Day Guide: In Search of Divine Inspiration
“The connection between spirituality and music is a strong one, and the late Shri Sathya Sai Baba is not the only guru to have influenced musicians across the seven seas. Here’s a look at the others who did.”

2. Dr. Jeffrey Low: Religious Tolerance
“We live in a world where religious tolerance is in woefully short supply. While most people practice some form of religion or spiritual faith, and virtually all of these have love or tolerance as a core principle, more people continue to be killed or persecuted over religion than any other single issue… How can something as beautiful and unifying as spirituality descend into so much hatred and violence? Why is religion so important to us, and why do we feel such a need to be right about it?”

3. Eboo Patel: What is the Key Spiritual Issue of Our Time?
“When Christiane Amanpour asked yesterday on This Week, “What do you think are the key, pressing spiritual issues of our time?” My answer was quick and clear. I said, “The role religion is going to play in the 21st century is going to be one of the key issues. Faith can either be a barrier of division, a bomb of destruction, or a bridge of cooperation. Our job is to make it a bridge of cooperation.”

4. Mark Morford: Jesus Will See You Now
“But then I paused and stepped into the wider view, reminding myself that such divine petitions have actually been around for millennia, across all lands and clans, from Christian to pagan, Islamic to Native American, every sort of human tribe imaginable offering every sort of aching, needful plea to any one of a million faces of god for all manner of blessing and baby, windfall and watershed, crop rebirth and game-winning touchdown pass. Naive? Maybe. Sort of beautiful and eternal? Well, mostly.”
