Sri Bhagavan says
« on: May 07, 2010, 09:27:57 AM »

Q-17: Is not everything the work of God?

Sri Bhagavan: Without desire, effort or resolve, the sun rises; and in its mere presence, the sunstone emits fire, the lotus blooms, water evaporates, people perform their various functions and then rest... like the worldly actions not affecting the sun, no karma attaches itself to god...god has no resolve.

Bhagavan Ramana says the same idea in a slightly different fashion
in Who am I?

"As the Sun rises, the world starts doing its work, as per the
panchkrityam or motthozhil (the five fold or three fold activities)
as  per their own karmas.   The lotus blooms, and the water evaporates.  As the magnet attracts the iron filings, men do their
work and then go for rest.  But the Sun is not partaking in any of
these activities.  The Sun is a sankalpa-rahita, one without any
wishes.  But activities do happen and stop in his presence.  Similarly,
God is also without any wishes or sankalpas.  As the Sun is not
touched by the worldly activities, as the Space is not affected by
the other four elements, God remains unaffected, as Witness."

"So also the Guru or God.  They do not place a person on their own,
into liberation.  However, if one listens to Guru's or God's words
and act as per his covenants, he will be protected by them.  As the
fawn caught in the jaws of a tiger, cannot escape, so those who
are caught in the gaze of grace, can never escape.  However they
should act as per Guru's words."

Bhagavan Ramana says in Sri Arunachala Akshara Mana Maalai:

"When I think Arunai (Arunachalam), I am caught in your bait of
grace.  How can one escape your net of grace, O Arunachala!"

(Verse 102)

Arunachala Siva.
