Religion is, in its broadest sense, defined as the answers given to explain humankind's relationship with the universe. In the course of the development of religion, it has taken an almost infinite number of forms in various cultures and individuals. Occasionally, the word "religion" is used to designate what should be more properly described as a "religious organization" – that is, an organization of people that supports the exercise of some religion, often taking the form of a legal entity. It can also be seen as a worldview or set of practices designed to achieve (among other things) enlightenment, unity with God, inner peace, or the development of a deeper meaning of life.
