A ritual “is a sequence of activities involving gestures, words, and objects, performed in a sequestered place, and performed according to set sequence”. Rituals may be prescribed by the traditions of a community, including a religious community. Rituals are characterized but not defined by formalism, traditionalism, in-variance, rule-governance, sacred symbolism, and performance.
Rituals are things that can be developed out of habit as well. However, this form of ritual is based on ancient understandings that bear religious symbolism to bring about a change in the manifest realm.
