Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- The Finite and the Infinite
"If you go deeper into the philosophy and scriptures
of all the religions, you'll find out that they all
say there's only one God and that God is omnipresent,
omnipotent, omniscient. If God is everywhere, how can
God have one form and one name? All these forms and
names are God. In the real sense, God is formless,
nameless, abstract, the Absolute One. You can call
it Absolute Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness,
Cosmic Intelligence or the Cosmic Force; or, according
to the scientists, you can call it basic matter and
force, the essence or the thing in itself. It's
impossible for our limited minds to grasp the Unlimited
One. So, the finite mind takes a little part of that
infinite that it can understand and says, `That's God for me.'
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
