Swami Sivananda

Just as oil is hidden in the seeds, butter in milk, mind in brain, foetus in the womb, Sun behind the clouds, fire in wood, Sugar or salt in water, scent in the buds, sound in Gramophonic records, gold in quarts, microbes in the blood, so also God is hidden in all objects. Just as you can see the bacilli of Cholera, Typhoid Fever, and Consumption through a powerful lens of a Microscope, so also you can see God through Jnana-Sakshu or the eye of intuition. The first sloka of Isa Vasya Upanishad begins with "Isa vasyam idam sarvam'' All these moveable and immoveable objects are indwelt by the Lord. In Kath Upanishad you will find "Esha sarva bhuteshu ghuda na prakashate." This God is hidden in all beings. He who has a sharp, subtle pure intellect can see God.

With lovely flowers of wisdom and love picked up from the garden of your heart, weave a beautiful garland for the Lord and crown Him in love and reverence.

- Swami Sivananda
