Finding God Within


Finding God Within





"A prince becomes anxious searching for his necklace, forgetting the reality that it's already hanging around his neck. He says he's lost his necklace, but when a wise person points out to him that the necklace he is looking for is already around his neck, then the suffering of his delusion comes to an end.

"Likewise, human beings forgetting that God is within themselves, search in vain for the Divine in the outer world. When the wise teacher of higher knowledge makes them acquainted with their lack of true perception, informing them that God is within, then they go within themselves [in meditation] and find relief from the suffering of useless wanderings."

-- Maharshi Mehi Paramhans, Shri Gita-Yoga-Prakash (Essence of of the Bhagavad Gita, Commentary on the Spirituality of the Gita by a Sant Mat Master)
