God

by Pandit Usharbudh Arya, D. Lih
     
 
One cannot talk about God, Dr. Arya tells us; one can only be conscious of Him experientially. Everyone is looking for God: the alcoholic in his bottle, the child in his Superman comics, the artist in his work. The need to know God springs from our deepest nature. But most of us are not aware of this. And so, drawing upon his own rich background in the yoga-Vedanta

Overview

One cannot talk about God, Dr. Arya tells us; one can only be conscious of Him experientially. Everyone is looking for God: the alcoholic in his bottle, the child in his Superman comics, the artist in his work. The need to know God springs from our deepest nature. But most of us are not aware of this. And so, drawing upon his own rich background in the yoga-Vedanta tradition, the author tells us how this awareness can be developed in everyone (including atheists and agnostics).

Read an Excerpt

"Numerous are the names and various are the paths of one and the same reality. Some call it God, some call it truth, and some call it everlasting happiness. God, for me, is truth, and truth is that which exists in all times- the past, present and future. It is self- existent; it was never born, so it never dies. It is the fountainhead of light and love. Searching for God, without knowing the truth, is in vain, for God is the ultimate truth.

A human being, through the highest of all living creatures, is still an unfinished being, longing for perfection, longing for a state of freedom from pains and miseries- and this leads him to seek the realization of truth. That truth is both within and without, so one can directly attain it by realizing the truth within himself. It is possible to do this. God will inspire seekers of enlightenment to find this ultimate reality." (from the Introduction by Swami Rama)
