8427God the Supreme Humorist
- Oct 14, 2004Hi,
Today when I was in our center I found a book - God the Supreme
Humourist Part 2. There Sri Chinmoy answers very amusing and
lighthearted questions asked by his students during a bus trip:
Charles: Does God like ice cream?
Sri Chinmoy: Yes, God does like ice cream because ice cream is the
food of the human beings who love the childlike consciousness. God
always treasures the child-consciousness; therefore, He likes ice
cream. He eternally wants to remain in the child-consciousness. He
is an eternal Child. Whatever a child likes, He also likes because
that is the only way He can satisfy and please Himself. Because He
is an eternal Child, He eternally likes ice cream.
Savita: How does the Supreme lose weight when He wants to diet?
Sri Chinmoy: If the Supreme wants to lose His excess weight in the
physical, then He adopts the physical process: He starves and
starves. He takes not more than twenty calories a day for two weeks
at least. And if He has to lose excess weight on the inner plane,
then He does it by dint of His Will-power.
Bill: Does God shave?
Sri Chinmoy: God shaves every day because He gives all importance to
His cleanliness. He believes in mutual appreciation. If He
appreciates His creation because the creation remains clean and
pure, then He is also expected to do the same. That is to say, He
has to keep Himself clean and pure. God tells us that appreciation
is nothing short of our inner and outer self-expansion.

If you want to enjoy a childlike spirit, I recommend this book. You
can find it on Sri Chinmoy Library.
Have fun... :)
