In Search of God

In Search of God

Our journey "in search of God" yet to reach the final destination, but scientists have tried their level best searching him through atom, quantum, quarks and God particle. They were able to found space within the atom but still unable to identify the 'Governor' of that space and the movement of the particles and waves. They are in search of 'Purush' through 'Prakiriti'. 

Hindu religion has unified all forms in formless God and the sensory world has been described as "leela" of that God. 

Wonderful description in Brihadaranyaka Upnishad. Taking fullness from that fullness, fullness remains.

ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात्पुर्णमुदच्यते
पूर्णश्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ॥
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

The Upanishad says, "Purnam adah: that origin of all things is full; purnam idam: this entire creation that has come from that origin of all things is also full; purnat purnam udachyate: from that Full this Full has come; purnasya purnam adaya: having taken away this Full from that Full; purnam evavasisyate: the Full still remains unaffected."

Skand Puran, Guru Stotram has described the 'Guru' in following shlokas of Salutations to Guru, the same words direct the Almighty God. 

अखण्डमण्डलाकारं व्याप्तं येन चराचरम् ।
तत्पदं दर्शितं येन तस्मै श्रीगुरवे नमः ॥२॥
(an Indivisible Whole of Presence, and by Whom is pervaded the moving and the non-moving Beings; By Whom is Revealed (out of Grace) That Feet (of Indivisible Presence); Salutations to that Guru)

ब्रह्मानन्दं परमसुखदं केवलं ज्ञानमूर्तिम्
द्वन्द्वातीतं गगनसदृशं तत्त्वमस्यादिलक्ष्यम् ।
एकं नित्यं विमलमचलं सर्वधीसाक्षीभूतम्
भावातीतं त्रिगुणरहितं सद्गुरुं तं नमामि ॥१४॥

(Who is the Bliss of Brahman, Who is the Bestower of Supreme Joy, Who is the Absolute, Who is the Embodiment of Knowledge; Who is Beyond Duality, Who is Boundless and Infinite Like the Sky, Who is Indicated by Maha Vakyas Like Tat-Tvam-Asi (That-Thou-Art). Who is One without the Second, Who is Eternal, Who is Stainless and Pure, Who is Immovable, Who is the Witness of the Intelligence of All Beings. Who is Beyond the States of the Mind, Who is Free from the Three Gunas; Salutations to that Sad-Guru.

All are traveling towards that 'Sad Guru' the Eternal God of all. All have started the journey as 'Laghu' (small) (darkness) will travel to "Guru" (full) (light of knowledge).

असतोमा सद्गमय। तमसोमा ज्योतिर् गमया। मृत्योर्मामृतं गमय॥ ॐ शांति शांति शांति - बृहदारण्यक उपनिषद् 1.3.28. "

(Aum Asato mā sad gamaya Tamaso mā jyotir gamaya Mṛtyormā amṛtam gamaya Aum śānti śānti śāntiḥ " - Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad 1.3.28) meaning of which is - "From ignorance, lead me to truth; From darkness, lead me to light; From death, lead me to immortality Aum peace, peace, peace " 

Shubham Bhavatu Kalyanam.
