Spiritual Import of Religious Festivals :Ch-2. Part - 24.
Ch-2. Siva – The Mystic Night ( Sivaratri)
As a matter of fact, we are seeing God even now.
But we are not able to recognise Him.
The world that we see before us is God Himself.
There is no such thing as the world.
The world does not exist.
It is only a name that we have given to the Supreme Being.
Call the dog a bad name and then hang it.
Who asked you to call it a world?
Why do you give such a name?
You yourself have given it a name and say, "Oh, this is the world!"
You can call it by another name.
You are free to give any name to it.
Really there is no such thing as a world.
It does not exist.
The world is only a name that you give to a distortion created in the perception of your consciousness due to its isolation into the subject and the object.
