Who creates the piece of wood?
« on: November 13, 2009, 11:15:27 AM »
A Muslim visitor put some questions to Bhagavan Ramana, on
20th April 1946.

Question:  The Lord has created all this, has He not?  What was
created first?  It is said light or sound was created first.

Bhagavan:  All these things which you say have been created
have to be seen by you say that they exist.  There must be a
seer.  If you find out who that seer is, then you will know about
creation and which was created first.

Question:  Can we call anything created, like this piece of wood,
for example, by God?  It is said that it is very wrong to do so.

Bhagavan:  Even the piece of wood, does it exist apart from
God?  Can we confine God to any time or place, since He is
everywhere and in everything?  We should not see anything
apart from God.  That is all.

Arunachala Siva.
