Aspects of religions

Nathapanth remained a very powerful religious force in the past for long period pervading every walk of life across whole of India. It made immense impact on the scholars, rulers, religious leaders and others. Many rulers were its followers. One of the most valuable contributions it made was that it created an atmosphere of social and religious harmony in the country. For this it had to pay a great price. Its geographical spread and reach had been unparalleled. It reached even the remotest corners and inaccessible areas like Bir Bhanghal and Lahul in Himachal Pradesh. It spread even beyond the borders of the country to Tibet following after the Buddhism there. But ultimately this powerful wave also fell to become a part of history. Some communities of the sect can still be seen as a distinct social group retaining some old practices. Some of their practices are still being followed with great reverence by all the sections of the society. In Himachal a good effort is being made to collect the oral literature, much of which concern the Nathas, and publish them.
