"Religion is a wide-spread word, Generally Philosophy, it is the axis of religion, Sense (salayatan) is the foundation of the religions, which are product, result and vipak from day-to-day life-experience. It includes study of parayatti, pattipada and pattivedan, (Theory and Practice). The People of many religions live in India, there are many types of festivals, customs and traditions, arts festivals, rituals are different as per their respective individual religion’s belief and faith of their individual Religion. But without the religion there is no good society. Hence there should be Religion. Even though we see diversity in Indian Religions, the practices are similar to a
certain extent and may be a slight difference with the name and rituals. Although the principles used in each religion basically are the same, but someone may interpret and understood in their own ways, the use of symbols are varying from place to place are also different and same. In other words, Indian religious art is very symbolic seen all most all the places. In terms of Hinduism, the design of God and Devi and the weapons in their hands and their vehicles are also symbolic. Also, used in the Buddhism, the composition of jataka stories, animals, birds in the picture are also completely symbolic. A holistic study of symbols and their pictorial composition helps to understand the social, economic and political position at that relevant time, and the sources of thought of people in the society at that time. Many thoughts are exchanged simultaneously through a symbol. Symbols represent the emotions, expressions, secrets, origins of each social aspect.
