He is truly great who greatly serves – Sadhu Vaswani

If you will not find Him on earth, you cannot find Him in space. For God is within you! Look for Him in the interior vastness. Look for Him within yourself. Seek Him there. Find Him there. Then you will see Him everywhere. Then every leaf and flower, and shrub and tree, the murmuring brook, the flowing stream, the sun, the moon , the singing stars, every man and woman and child, every bird and animal, every drop of water, every grain of sand, every ray of sunshine will speak to you the sacred, ancient word ‘OM.’

For me not to love bird and beast would be not to love the Lord. For his children are birds and beasts, no less than human beings.

He is truly great who greatly serves.
Sadhu Vaswani
