So does God dwell inside everything;
Seek Him, therefore, in your heart.

quote 4128  | 
Qur'an 58.7 

F or the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

O ur Lord! Lo! You know that which we hide and that which we proclaim. Nothing in the earth or in heaven is hidden from God.

quote 4124  | 
Qur'an 14.38 

A rjuna:
O Highest Lord, I wish I could see you,
your form as Lord,
Just as you yourself say you are,
Supreme Divine Being.
O Lord, if you think it is possible
that I might see you--
Then, Lord of mystic power,
show me your changeless self.
The Lord:
Open your eyes and see
my hundreds, my thousands of forms,
In all their variety, heavenly splendor,
in all their colors and semblances.

Look upon the Gods of Heaven, the Radiant Gods,
the Terrifying Gods, the Kind Celestial Twins.
See, Arjuna, countless marvels
never seen before.

Here is my body, in one place, now
the whole world--
All that moves and does not move--
and whatever else you want to see.

Of course, with the ordinary eye
you cannot see me.
I give you divine vision.
Behold my absolute power!

With these words, Vishnu,
the great Lord of mystic power,
Gave Arjuna the vision
of his highest, absolute form--

His form with many mouths and eyes,
appearing in many miraculous ways,
With many divine ornaments
and divine, unsheathed weapons.

He wore garlands and robes
and ointments of divine fragrance.
He was a wholly wonderful god,
infinite, facing in every direction.

If the light of a thousand suns
should effulge all at once,
It would resemble the radiance
of that god of overpowering reality.

Then and there, Arjuna saw
the entire world unified,
Yet divided manifold,
embodied in the God of gods.

Bewildered and enraptured,
Arjuna, the Pursuer of Wealth,
Bowed his head to the god,
joined his palms, and said,

Master! Within you I see the gods,
and all classes of beings,
The Creator
on his lotus seat,
and all seers
and divine serpents.

Far and near, I see you
without limit,
Reaching, containing everything, and
with innumerable mouths and eyes.
I see no end to you, no middle,
and no beginning--
O universal Lord and form of all!

You, Wearer
of Crown, Mace, and Discus,
You are a deluge of brilliant light
all around.
I see you,
who can hardly be seen,
With the splendor of radiant fires and suns,

You are the one imperishable
paramount necessary core of knowledge,
The world's ultimate foundation;
you never cease to guard the eternal tradition.
You are the everlasting
Divine Being.

There is no telling what is
beginning, middle, or end in you.
Your power is infinite;
your arms reach infinitely far.
Sun and moon are your eyes.
This is how I see you.
Your mouth is a flaming sacrificial fire.
You burn up the world with your radiance.

For you alone fill the quarters of heaven
and the space between heaven and earth.
The world above,
man's world,
and the world in between
Are frightened at the awesome sight of you,
O mighty being!

There I see throngs of gods entering you.
Some are afraid,
they join their palms
and call upon your name.
Throngs of great seers and perfect sages hail you
with magnificent hymns.

The Terrifying Gods, the Gods of Heaven, the Radiant Gods,
also the Celestial Spirits,
the All-Gods, the Celestial Twins,
the Storm Gods, and the Ancestors;
multitudes of heavenly musicians,
good sprites, demons, and perfect sages
All look upon you in wonder.

When the worlds see your form
of many mouths and eyes,
of many arms, legs, feet
many torsos, many terrible tusks,
They tremble,
As do I.

For seeing you
ablaze with all the colors of the rainbow,
Touching the sky,
with gaping mouths and wide, flaming eyes,
My heart in me is shaken.
O God,
I have lost all certainty, all peace.

Your mouths and their terrible tusks
evoke the world in conflagration.
Looking at them
I can no longer orient myself.
There is no refuge.
O Lord of Gods,
dwelling place of the world,
give me Your grace.

quote 4123  | 
Bhagavad Gita 11.3-25 

M y material world is eightfold,
divided into earth, water,
Fire, air, ether, mind, the faculty of meditation,
and self-awareness.
This is the lower nature. My higher
nature is different.
It is the very life
that sustains the world.
Do not forget that this is the source
of all existence.
I am the genesis and the end
of the entire world.
There is nothing higher than I am,
O Conqueror of Wealth!
The world is strung on me
like pearls on a string.

quote 4121  | 
Bhagavad Gita 7.4-7 

G od! there is no God but He,
the Living, the Everlasting.
Slumber seizes Him not, neither sleep;
to Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth.
Who is there who shall intercede with Him
save by His leave?
He knows what lies before them
and what is after them,
and they comprehend not anything of His knowledge
save such as He wills.
His throne comprises the heavens and earth;
the preserving of them oppresses Him not;
He is the All-high, the All-glorious.

quote 4116  | 
Qur'an 2.255 

M oses said, "I pray thee, show me thy glory." And [the Lord] said, "I will make all my goodness pass before you, and will proclaim before you my name 'The Lord'; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy." "But," he said, "you cannot see my face; for man shall not see me and live." And the Lord said, "Behold, there is a place by me where you shall stand upon the rock; and while my glory passes by I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with my hand until I have passed by; then I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back; but my face shall not be seen."

quote 4110  |   The Torah
Exodus 33.18-23 

N o vision can grasp Him,
But His grasp is over all vision;
He is above all comprehension,
Yet is acquainted with all things.

quote 4107  | 
Qur'an 6.103 

H e is the one God, hidden in all beings, all-pervading, the Self within all beings, watching over all works, dwelling in all beings, the witness, the perceiver, the only one, free from qualities.

quote 4099  | 
Svetasvatara Upanishad 6.11 

S o also did We show Abraham the power and the laws of the heavens and the earth, that he might have certitude. When the night covered him over, he saw a star; he said, "This is my Lord." But when it set, he said, "I love not those that set." When he saw the moon rising in splendor, he said, "This is my Lord," but when the moon set, he said, "Unless my Lord guide me, I shall surely be among those who go astray." When he saw the sun rising in splendor, he said, "This is my Lord; this is the greatest of all," but when the sun set, he said, "O my people! I am indeed free from your [error] of ascribing partners to God. For me, I have set my face firmly and truly towards Him Who created the heavens and the earth, and never shall I ascribe partners to God."

quote 4096  | 
Qur'an 6.75-79 

W hen Abraham saw the sun issuing in the morning from the east, he was first moved to think that that was God, and said, "This is the King that created me," and worshipped it the whole day. In the evening when the sun went down and the moon commenced to shine, he said, "Verily this rules over the orb which I worshipped the whole day, since the latter is darkened before it and does not shine any more." So he served the moon all that night. In the morning when he saw the darkness depart and the east grow light, he said, "Of a surety there is a King who rules over all these orbs and orders them."

quote 4095  | 
Genesis 86a 

A nd of His signs is that He created you from the dust; now behold you are human beings, ranging widely.

And of His signs is that He created for you, of yourselves, spouses that you might find repose in them, and He has planted love and kindness in your hearts.

Surely there are signs in this for people who reflect.

And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the variety of your tongues and hues, surely there are signs in this for people who have knowledge. And of His signs is your slumber by night and day, and your seeking of His bounty.

Surely there are signs in this for people who hear. The lightning which He shows you for fear and hope is yet another of His signs; He sends down water from the sky, thereby reviving the earth after it is dead.

Surely in this there are signs for people who understand. And of His signs is that space and the earth stand firm by His command; then when He calls you, suddenly, from the earth you shall emerge.

quote 4093  | 
Qur'an 30.20-25 

I t is God who splits the grain and the date-stone. He brings forth the living from the dead; He brings forth the dead too from the living.
So that then is God; then how are you perverted? He splits the sky into dawn, and has made the night for a repose, and the sun and moon for a reckoning.
That is the ordaining of the All-mighty, the All-knowing. It is He who has appointed for you the stars, that by them you might be guided in the shadows of land and sea.
We have distinguished the signs for a people who know.
It is He who produced you from one living soul, and then a lodging place, and then a repository.
We have distinguished the signs for a people who understand. It is He who sent down out of heaven water, and thereby We have brought forth the shoot of every plant. And then We have brought forth the green leaf of it, bringing forth from it close-compounded grain, and out of the palm tree, from the spathe of it, dates thick-clustered, ready to the hand, and gardens of vines, olives, pomegranates, like each to each, and each unlike to each. Look upon their fruits when they fructify and ripen!
Surely, in all this are signs for a people who do believe.
