The religion has played a very important and crucial role and has established deep rooted effects about various customs and traditions of each individual society.
Even today, the culture and traditions are directly linked with religion only. Any society belonging to and following customs of particular culture, can not separate itself from religious bonds and bindings.
Accordingly, the members of family can not free themselves easily from the traditions being followed by the family and have to follow customary practices.
For this very reason, certain occupations have become hereditary. Thus decisions of society or clan have more influence than the decision of the family, because the decision of society is the decision of large group and it is not so easy to ignore the mandate of society.
The influence of religion can be visualized easily even on such small things as Dress, Food, Marriage, Education, Various celebration of life. The dress we wear is very frequently related or guided by the religious outlook. Similarly, it is general trend that Hindus, Jain; Brahmins are mostly vegetarians, whereas Muslims and Christians are predominantly non-vegetarians.
In the same way, various rituals of marriages are different in societies following different religions. The birth of a child and the birth day celebrations are quite different and almost totally influenced by the religious beliefs.
Similarly different customs exist are followed when someone passes away. These types of differences can be found not only in our country but all over the world. We have described very briefly the above differences among societies following different religions. But even among the societies following same religion, these are minor but very specific differences of traditions and customs between one clan and another.
Similarly, some differences exist among more smaller groups also. Furthermore there are still more specific differences between one family and other; even though they belong to some clan.
For example, few traditions and customs differ among Swetamber and Digamber sects of Jain religion. Similarly many minor variations can be easily traced between Siya and Sunni among Muslim and Catholic and Protestants among Christians. But it is very important to note that impact and influence of religion is so deep rooted that it is very very difficult to escape from it.
In spite of tremendous scientific developments and logical outlook, the individuals and the families becomes so inclined and adjusted in traditions and customs guided by religious agencies, that they can not make themselves free.
Because if they make themselves free from one religion,they adopt another religion and there also they will have to follow some new religious customs and traditions. Thus the influence of religion remains with individual from his birth till death.
Similarly each and every family is influence to great extent by religion and religious institutions. With the change of orthodox outlook and thinking, the religious thinking and attitude is also becoming more and more progressive and adopting scientific and logical attitudes.
Now the religious customs, rituals and traditions are also becoming more and more logical and reasoning based. This change is gradually bringing a closer association and mixing of religious attitude with scientific reasons.
The norms and standards are being modified, so as to retain the basic fundamentals of all the religion, i. The religion, in fact, establishes and develops the morality and character.
The action of hatred, theft, gambling, drinking etc. These notions get deeply rooted in the mind of a child and remain there forever and thus help in building his character.
For inculcating these conceptions, the religious attitude of family plays the most important and permanent role. In olden days, the schools had been imparting education relating to each and every aspect of life.
They worked there and also got education in various disciplines. The cultural development, religious attitudes and social development had great influence of the teacher. With the change of social structure, scientific approach and modifications, the structural changes occurred in educational systems also.
The earlier education was more directed to moral values and the learners used to adopt their family trades. With the scientific development and industrialization, the education became more and more job oriented and attention towards moral ethics gradually declined.
Even though attention has always been on development of good qualities of human beings like Truth, Sympathy, Love, Honesty, Non-violence etc. This overall change in attitude has affected each and every aspect of life.
The individuals do not care much about honesty and truth, but they feel pride for their worldly possessions like a good and big house or an expensive car. Now the younger ones can be seen arguing with the elders, which was almost absent in earlier periods.The effects of family and culture can substantially influence one's personality, behaviours, beliefs and values, which correlates positively to the life experiences in part 1.
Research has shown the significance of family interactions on stress levels, personality and behavioural traits on younger individuals. When there is a lack of a strong family influence or relationship with one’s parents, there is a tendency to turn towards friends.
Depending on the type of friends, they may or may not shape your world, according to Max.
