My Tryst with God
Does God exist? this question has been lurking me for a long time. Since i was born and brought up in a religious brahmin family my tryst with God had begun ever since i stepped onto this world. First thing i was taught was to fold my hands and pray. Everyone has two religions. One they are born into, another that they follow after growing up. Sadly most of the hindu customs are pretty much outta this world and higly symbolic. I was neither religious nor an atheist , but somewhere between the two.
19 is probably not the age for thinking about this. I was thinking about my teenage when was a tween and now my salvation. Pinjiliye pazhuthadhu as one would call in Tamil. This was when i started to search why i am here? Is there any being called GOD? Again it brings to Venkey and Mankey
Venkey: Finally i found it!
Mankey: Found what? Your non-existent brain
Venkey: No stupid, the truth behind God.
Mankey: Hahahaha what truth? You found the ornament worn by Rama and lipstick worn by sita in that dumb serial, Ramayana.
Venkey: No bird brain, let me tell you something. The God i believe in is very different from the God you beleive rather not believe in.
Mankey: Wait! i will shut my ears , Start camera action. go ahead with your lecture.
Venkey: You will never change. Ok who is God according to you?
Mankey: God is a person with circle of light around his head wearing ornaments in gold, Didn't you see any of the Ramnarayan films, with those sleeky graphics killing demons
Venkey: Think you are joking . I will tell who God is, he is unimaginable and we cannot comprehend him. He is not a human. he is not male or female.
Mankey: Ok, is he a lion or any animal?
Venkey: You think you are so intelligent? Answer this "Define the word time?"
Mankey: If you travel 50 miles at a speed of 50mph you will reach it in an hour thats time.
Venkey: Nice try mankey but its not a definition, its a comparitive.
Mankey: Then what?
Venkey: You cant define time because it is a four dimensional object and we are 3 dimensional beings. ( Length, breadth and width) You cant comprehend something which is higher than your dimension.
Mankey: I cannot sense God, how can i say he exists?
Venkey: Can you sense time? No you cant.
Mankey: I can see through its effects.
Venkey: You can also feel god through his effects like this cosmos.
Mankey: If God created this universe, who created God?
Venkey: Do me one favour can you draw a foursided triangle for me?
Mankey: You know how i feel? I feel like kicking your ass with a size twelve boot. Silly!, your question is wrong.
Venkey: Thats what i meant, so is yours. Time started only when space came into existence, one cannot exist without the other. So there was no time before space and God is not bound by time. He can see that starting and the end of time unlike we lousy 3 dimensional creatures. You cant get a three dimensional being into paper, this explains why he took incarnation to enter this three dimensional world.
Mankey: nice story good imagination.
Venkey: This is not imagination you stupid!, it’s science. They say there are ‘n’ dimensions in mathematics God is one above that, ‘n+1’.
Mankey: Why not 2 or more, is it not his lucky number according to numerology.
Venkey: You will never change, ignorant fool see i am going to take the lead.
Mankey: Lets see its gonna 2-1 in favour of me.
This probably is the most significant post in my blog till date, at least i believe so. I chose to go with venkey second time around. Score now 2-1. Hope everyone got a hang of the nature of God. Now its upto our very own Poli Poli samiyaar(fake fake, Swami Venkatananda to do the summarising speech.
Swami Venkatanada Says:
Now i am in the process discovering even more truths about this unending debate of God. As far as i am concerned there is only one ultimate God, he is called by different names in different religions. I call it Brahmam ( different from brahma or brahmin). My journey has just started hopefully i will reach the oneness from which this world of maya came into being.Om!!!
