Personal and Impersonal God

Questioner: Guruji, this question arises from the difficulty I have with the concept of the Personal God, God with form and I ask myself what is that form?

Divinity face to face

How do we see Divinity face to face? When we can see that force in everything, in every living being, in every creature, in anything animate as well as inanimate. When the sun shines, the sun shines for all, and the glory of Divinity is there for all. You see. So this is what we […]

But when through evolutionary processes man started thinking, then he started compartmentalizing that I and you. I and you. Now if there is one, there could be […]

Talking to God

The best way to review our talking is by not talking. Now what does that mean? It means that talk is nothing else but the verbalization of thought. And when thoughts become steady, silent, and find an equilibrium, then the real talk begins, the real review begins between you and Him. So words has its […]
