Swami Suddhananda Thoughts

Which is better? Form or formless? A stone may not be mountain but a statue can be carved out of it .A handful of water is not a river, but it is enough to quench the thirst. A little fire can cook your food. Limitations become glorious in All pervasive Consciousness. I Am! But a thought through the body makes the world real and accessible. Formless or Form. Both have their beauty!

The understanding of God's presence everywhere, leads to an automatic surrender of oneself that is Bhakthi.

Many people come and tell him that they don't believe in god because there is so much of disease, injustice etc, and what kind of god would allow so much of suffering. "So I tell them, don't worry if you don't believe in God because I'm not god's agent. If he exists, our disbelief is not going to make him disappear and if he doesn't exist, our belief is not going to create him. The existence of anything is independent of our belief or disbelief, so let us not talk about it."
