**Religion is about institutionalised often dogmatic and hierarchical social systems focusing on power, control, politics, money, possessions and other secular concerns.
Spirituality on the other hand is about one’s personal and direct experiences of cosmic, supra-natural, trans-egoic and non-ordinary aspects of reality. Experiences which more often than not, are transformational of one’s consciousness, sense of self/identity and often lead to more selfless and global concerns/behaviors.
This is why Buddhism, Taoism and possibly some sects of Hinduism are more accurately described as spiritual rather than religious practices.
Alan Watts
