The pursuit of spirituality begins at home with yourself while working hard and sincerely to take care of your responsibilities first and earn a living honestly.

As indicated above, there certainly is more to spirituality than performing endless rituals in the name of religion and offering mindless worships / prayers to any person who claims to be a god (goddess) with the promise of a reward to his (her) followers and  devotees in return for their worships, prayers and offerings.

A scriptural verse in regard to the above:

There are men selfish and false who moved by their lusts – and passions perform terrible tapas (austerities) not ordained by Veda (scripture): fools who torture the powers of life in their bodies and Atman who dwells in them. Know that there work is tamas (darkness)” …… The Bhagvad Gita (Ch. 17: V. 5, 6)
