"While some might assert that Linux itself is a religion, there
are plenty of religious and spiritual people who use and love

missed. Most of the software is for the two largest religions:
Christianity and Islam. Because of this, I have not included every
software package for those two religions.
"Primarily practiced in South Asia, Hinduism undoubtedly has a
large number of Linux users.
"Quick Jyotish – A Vedic astrology program
"Linux also has support for sanskrit language and text.
"Some say that Linux fits perfectly with Buddhist teachings,
making it the logical choice.
"Display Dhammapada – A program that displays a random
verse from the Dhammapada English or Polish translation."
