Power of God
« on: February 16, 2009, 10:31:46 AM »
On 22nd March 1938, a certain man from Madurai asked:

How to know the Power of God?

Bhagavan: One's own being is His Power.  The trouble arises only
when one says: "I am this or that, such and such." Do not do it.
Be yourself. That is all.

Devotee: Which is the best of all religions?  What is Bhagavan's method?

Bhagavan: All religions and methods are one and the same.

Devotee: Different methods are taught for liberation.

Bhagavan: Why should be liberated? Why not remain as you are now?

Devotee: I want to get rid of pain. To be rid of it is said to be liberation.

Bhagavan: That is what, all religions teach.

Devotee:  But what is the method?

Bhagavan: To retrace your way back!

Devotee: Whence have I come?

Bhagavan: This is just what you should know. Did these questions arise in your sleep?  Did you not exist then?  Are you not the same being now?
