The Latin root of the word "religion" means "to bind again." How do you suppose the concept of binding or tying came to be applied to our religious teachings?

The common enemy of all religious disciplines — the target of all moral precepts laid down by the great teachers of mankind — is selfishness of mind. It causes ignorance, anger and passion — which are the causes of all the troubles of the world.
