Abstract

The study explores the relationship between spirituality and religion from a critical discourse analysis (CDA) perspective. As every religion has particular spiritual dimensions according to its beliefs, the paper seeks to analyze the specific dimensions of spirituality in significant religions. The study’s research design is purely qualitative as it uses the textual narrative method to investigate the visions of scholars on the conception of spirituality. The study’s major findings reveal that spirituality is not a dormant illustration of religion. Christian scholars tried to link spirituality with society and the Church. Most Buddhist and Hindu scholars believe that religion does not need to gain the true light of spirituality. The Islamic concept of spirituality is likely to stick with religion. Therefore, it is suggested in continuation of the present study that future researchers consider the factors that push persons to become spiritual souls. Moreover, future researchers can also pay attention to the subconscious mind by giving a solid distinction between the sub-consciousness and spirituality of a person.
