Swami Sivananda

Isa vasyam idam saivam — This world is indwelt by the Lord. "Avasyam" means "indwelt" (by the Lord), That is, this world is pervaded by the Lord. "Vesyem" means "clothed" (by the Lord). The Lord is not seated outside. He is not an extra-cosmic Purusha or Entity. He is the Seli or the Soul of this universe. He pervades and permeates all. He is the interpenetrating Essence or Prasence.

The depth and solidity of substance in the world is similar to the distance and substantiality of things seen in a mirror. This truth is not realised in life because the body of the observer is itself involved in this reflected appearance called the world.

- Swami Krishnananda
