Q & A on Spiritual Life and Sadhana from “May I Answer That?”
by Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj
What is God?
If I give you a good slap on your face, who knows that slap?
That knower (Vetta), that knowing subject, is God. When a strong desire is
satisfied or gratified, that blissful state wherein the mind finds rest is God.
That which sparkles or glitters in your eyes is God. That which prompts you to
think is God, the Lord of the mind. The source (Yoni) or support (Adhishthan)
for your mind, Prana, senses and body is God.
The tree exists. It shines. It gives delight. These three aspects, existence, shining, delight— Asti-Bhati-Priya or Sat-Chit-Ananda is God. God is truth. God is love, God is beauty. God is Ananda. God is Light of lights. God is Mind of minds, Prana of Pranas, Soul of souls. That shines in your heart and that is inseparable from you. Feel His presence always. Recognize His presence always, everywhere. Carry His presence when you walk.
