In a mango grove, the mango kernel becomes the tree and in the end the fruit remains. The fruit is useful for eating, and thereafter in the end the mango kernel remains. In the middle one sees the tree, thereafter it is nothing but the modification of the kernel. If one sees the changes, then it is the tree, and if one sees the essence then it is the kernel. Similarly if you see the changes in them, it is the world and if you see the essence in them then it is God. To see the changes is a mistake, because in the end the changes do not remain; only the essence will remain. Therefore to not see the changes and to see the essence is having a divine sight. On having divine sight, there is only God and God only is perceived – “Vasudevah Sarvam.”
The same water takes the form of ice, dew, fog, mist, steam, hail, clouds, rain, river, pond, ocean etc. Place ice in a pot and heat it, the ice melts and becomes water. Then the water will also become steam, and the steam in its subtle form will become formless. The water alone is in the form of steam, that alone becomes clouds, and may come down as hale or rain and that becomes a river and later takes on the form of the ocean. Even though taking on these various forms, in essence it is only and remains water. Similarly God takes on many forms
God takes on gross form in the form of this world, just like water becomes ice. And in the form of knowledge of fire, becomes subtle and is perceived as “All is God” (Vasudevah Sarvam). Whatever forms the water takes on, ice, dew, steam, river, ocean, clouds etc., it is only water. It is nothing but water. Similarly, whether God is seen in the form of this world, or any other form, it is only God. We see nothing between us and the Sun, but there too there is water. Whether the water is seen as ice or being as moisture in the air that is not seen, then too it is only water. Similarly, what is seen is also God and what is not seen is also God – “Tvamaksharam sadsattparam yat” (Gita 11/37). Everywhere there is God and only God – “Vasudevah Sarvam”
Just as when we remember Haridwar, then in our mind we see the Hari’s stile, we see Gangaji, we see the fishes etc. This all-in-all is mind’s creation. When the thoughts about Haridwar leave, nothing remains, only mind remains. Similarly, God made a resolve – “Bahu syaam prajaayeya” then God only manifested in the form of this world. And when the resolve is given up then the world does not remain; only God remains. Therefore that one God Himself has taken on innumerable forms – “Vasudevah Sarvam”
There are many toys made of sugar, but in all of them there is nothing but sugar. Some make umbrellas, some birds, some little houses, but on melting, it all becomes one. There are many ornaments made of gold, some for wearing on feet, some on the waist, some on the nose, some on the ear, some around the neck, some on the hands etc. All those ornaments have different names, colors, features, use, weight, value. But in all of them, there is nothing else besides gold. The point is that just like those things that are made of water is water only, that which is made of sugar is sugar only, and that which is made of gold is gold only, similarly that which is made from God, this entire universe is God only God – “Vasudevah Sarvam”
Sab jagah Ishvar roop hai, bhalo buro nahin koyi |
Jaise jaaki bhaavana, taiso hi phal hoye ||
•By giving existence and importance to the world, it has been called changes. By not giving existence and importance to the unreal world, one has experience of it being sentient form of Divinity alone.
