Religion is the belief in a supernatural being or a spiritual reality that transcends the material world. There are many different types of religions, including Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism.
There are also many different kinds of religious practices and rituals, which are a part of each religion. These include prayer, worship and chanting. These can be found in almost any culture or region.
In general, religion is defined as a social-cultural system of designated behaviors and practices, morals, beliefs, worldviews, texts, sanctified places, prophecies, ethics, or organizations, that generally orient human life to some form of spirituality. This system of beliefs and practices can be both functional and substantive, according to how it is used in society.
