About this series
In the beginning of this series of talks Pujya Swamiji states that the word ‘God’ is universally the most misunderstood word, and that everyone has his/her own concept of what ‘God’ is.
People who don’t believe in God, in fact dismiss their own concept of God. And those who do believe in god, like Muslims, Christians, Jews, Parsis and many others, they all believe in fact in their own particular concept of God.
Swamiji jokingly adds that only God can put up with this kind of confusion.
Swamiji’s teaching of Vedanta helps us to recognize and appreciate Isvara as the creation and the laws that govern it.
Ishvara, or God, is therefore not a matter of believe, but a matter of understanding. Isvara is already there in all aspects of our life. We only need to be more aware of his presence. And the more you keep within dharma and follow dharma, the more you are in touch with Isvara. Dharma is an expression of Isvara through you. The more you appreciate Isvara, the less of you is there. In fact, all that is here is Isvara.
