Unity in multiplicity? How can it be?

The whole of the universe is nothing but the very embodiment of  the Lord. Wherever we look, we look at only Divinity

and nothing else. It is the one formless God who manifests Himself in several bodies with different names and forms and He revels in the universe. One who sees unity in multiplicity is the wise person. Such a person is never subjected to any attachment, infatuation or sorrow.  Only the one who can perceive this unity in multiplicity is the one who is one who is pure and divine. Anybody who has realised unity will also have purity and definitely you will be able to realise divinity. One who has such absolute purity sees unity everywhere and sees himself everywhere, he sees the same divinity everywhere. In fact, unity, purity and divinity are not three different things – they are one and the same thing. One who experiences unity will have purity and will see divinity – they are not three different things. The whole universe is a limb of God. The same Divinity shines forth in everything, in every one. In the universe, the Lord shines forth. And the whole universe shines forth in the Lord. Only when we recognise unity in everyone, that is the time when we can say that we are progressing on the spiritual path. We have to give up the narrow-minded feelings of ‘I’ and ‘mine’ and grow into broad-mindedness. We have to conduct ourselves by recognising the truth that it is one God who is there in everyone.  Love lives by giving and forgiving. Love does not know accepting anything in return, it only gives. Love even sheds the ego of doership. Its spontaneous act that it attributes to God not to himself or herself. Developing pure feelings and sacredness is essential so that one can see the same Divinity in everyone, love everyone and serve everyone. When all of us become selfless, the great Indian ideal that whole world is one family can be realised.Only one thing. One has to become selfless. Don’t have any fear, don’t have any worries. Have the faith that Lord is always with you. Love everyone, accept everyone. Love for one and hate for other wont serve the purpose. Hate is because of judgement through our own interpretation of other person's deeds.Each person's thinking, deeds are thro karma. God's will. We cant change it. Dont force anyone to follow the path that I think proper, thats my path, not their path.My experience, scholarship or intelligence is tiniest of tiny things in the universe.How can I tell anybody that is the only way. Rather I see the world as Vasudeva Kudumbakam - the one family of God bound only by love wires.God is going to look after me and them in His own way. I need not have to think of myself and only my family my relatives. I will think of everyone as my family. When we develop such broad-mindedness, God likes it most. What makes God happy is let us love everyone, let us consider everyone as a member of our family and serve everyone.

Do religions say the same thing? Yes.


1 Corinthians 12:12-31King James Version (KJV)

12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

O people, We have created you from a male and a female and made you into races and tribes so that you may know each other. Surely the most honored of you in the sight of God is the one who is the most righteous of you (49:13).

To each among you have We prescribed a Law and an Open Way. If Allah(God) had so willed, He would have made you a single People, but (His plan is) to test you in what He has given you; so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah(God); it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute. (al-MaŒidah 5:48)


"Chant, and meditate on the One God, who permeates and pervades the many beings of the whole Universe. God created it, and God spreads through it everywhere. Everywhere I look, I see God. The Perfect Lord is perfectly pervading and permeating the water, the land and the sky; there is no place without Him." (SGGS 782)

The Sikhs believe that Allah - A name of God used by Muslims and Christians of the Middle East (there are 998 more according to the Prophet of Islam) is also a valid name for God. Similarly, the name HariRaamPaarbrahmKrishan which are names of God used by Hindus are also frequently mentioned in the Sikh holy scriptures. The same God of the ChristiansMuslimsHindus, etc is also called Akal Purakh or WaheGuru, the primal being of the Sikhs.
