Author(s):

religion, spirituality, sympathy, interconnectedness
Abstract
Religion involves a system of beliefs, practices, rituals and symbols that lead to the realization of the sacred namely God or the ultimate reality. On the other hand spirituality totally differs from religion and is a personal quest for the self –realization. Thus religion belongs to a group whereas spirituality has a personal dimension. Paulo Coelho’s novels talk about the side of spirituality which encompasses the whole universe. Spirituality can never be an individual concern as it is built on the interconnectedness of human beings. It can be realized through love, sympathy, compassion and forgiveness. And more importantly Paulo’s   novel is a reminder to anyone feeling numbed by day-to-day drudgery that one’s spiritual side can be awakened. This paper aims at analyzing Paulo Coelho’s concept of religion and spirituality with special reference to his novel ‘The Winner Stands Alone.’
