Swami Vijnanananda Teachings

God is existence, knowledge and bliss.
Many are His names and endless are His manifestations.
As the devotee looks upon Him, so does He manifest himself to Him.
To some, therefore, He reveals Himself as Kali, to some as Rama, to some as Krishna or Shiva, and so on.
It all depends on the devotee’s own mental constitution.
Swami Vijnananandaa direct disciple of Sri Ramakrishna
