Who is God?

In previous post I presented my views on God.

Here I would like to put views of few people with whom I communicate. Keeping out their names from this post I would just post their views here.

Aunty: God to me is like supreme power, I cant see him but feel him. He is the creation of every thing and world. He is everywhere and cause of everything.

Uncle: I dont believe in God. But i think he is supreme power who created everything and still creates and destructs everything.

Majority of people play between these two views.

There are few things common between them,

  • they both visit to temples and offer prayers
  • they dont know the meaning of prayers
  • they dont know what is God?
  • they might have read Gita or heard Gita
  • they dont try to put head and understand Gita.

And to them God is

  • An idol they worship in temple
  • A power who created world
  • A power who can destroy world
  • A power runs this world.

If you ask youngsters they will answer you, its time to enjoy and make fun and not be saint.

A teenager friend: Sister, its difficult for me to put God in term, but my Grandma use to tell he is the one who created world and he runs this world and feeds the world.

A question comes, Then what do farmers do? What do your dad do? What do army personal do?

Listening all these definitions I can just say, neither of them know who is God?  And would say this…..

Jane tu Jane na kya hai khuda, ishwar, alha, God, rub

uthe hai haath tere ibadaad mei kahi

jode hai haath tere puja mei kahi

juhkhe hai sir tere prayer mei kahi

dil mei teri hai astha

par nazar mei teri vo nahi

Jane tu Jane na kya hai khuda, ishwar, alha, God, rub

padhi hai tune gita, kuran

dundha tune madir, masjid

use dundha nahi tune apne dil mei

Jane tu Jane na kya hai khuda, ishwar, alha, God, rub

If you would have listened or read Gita and asked questions you would have definitely learned who is God? Where is he?

God- a mystery or reality

I would like to first of all put my views on God then quote my readings and findings in later post.

If being asked who is God then I would say, Its “You” who is God. 🙂 Surprised. I have my own thinking to support this. When you read Gita, Krishna explains Arujuna that he, God, is sanatan satya, he never dies, never looses his memory and is all above materialist pleasures. He has created all these pleasures but is not attached to these pleasures. He is an actor at the same time he is an observer. If he is acting, his acts are not affected by Moh and Maya. When being asked about his form, he said, I dont have any form. But you can see me in any form you want me to be in.

So he is ajanma and formless. He is in each atom of this world. Then I think he is my “good senses”, my “mind” which observes my each and every act and guides me at each step. Is it not what Krishna did with Arujuna? He was guider of his senses and showed him ways.

If yes, then is it not enough to say that God is “you” rather your mind or your consciousness which observes each and every step of yours and guides you.

Have you observed when you are going to take any decision, you will find two parts of yourself giving you different options and views. Depending on the situation you get good options and bad options from these parts. And whom do you follow? You follow either of these options. Your decision is affected on how you take the situation. Or shall I say that your decision is affected by Rajo Guna or Tamo Guna or Sattva Guna. Which ever guna satisfies you, you take decision based on the situations, chosen guna shows you.

If God is formless, how can I define him in any form? If you are a real object in this real world and if the above stated arguments are satisfactory then, how can I term God as mystery?

But before getting excited and jumping to any conclusion. I would say that your decision will be based on guna, and in order to find the best of all the three guna you need to take base of Gita.

So in all the conclusion according to me is, God is your power backed by truth which helps you take decisions and guides you in life.

I may be wrong and would like to hear comments of my valuable readers.
