Religion: A study through postcards

Hello Everyone...

Today I would like to talk about Religion. It has always been a favourite topic of mine. Through my postcards I have discovered a large world out there that I never  knew before.

In my collection there is a special segment which I call My Religion Postcards. I have understood and learnt many things through this collection.
 
For those of you who want to know about me. I am born a Hindu to orthodox Hindu parents. We grew up learning about religion and prayer rituals, it is very important to me even till today to respect my religion. However, my parents always thought us to respect all faiths. Being born into such a family and with a deep understanding of my own religion, made me wonder about other religions in the world and since then I never stopped learning. Theology became a favourite topic of mine. I researched deeply by reading and surfing the internet about the four main religions in the world Hinduism, Islam, Christianity and Buddhism. I am further expanding my knowledge in Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Bahá'í Faith and Jainism.  
 
I will do another post on India and Hinduism.Here I will share with you some postcards I have from all over the world in connection with religion.
 
I will show you some postcards with explanations.
