There is One God

by Bawa Muhaiyaddeen


Original Language Tamil & English

There is One God.
He created all beings,
And He exists beyond the beyond of religions,
Beyond the separations of race,
Religion, and philosophies.
He is beyond mind, desire, and physical vision
He is beyond the world, lust, torpor, and illusion.
God resides in that spotlessly pure place known as the heart
And sees and knows everything.
He sees each and every heart and mind and understands all things.

Commentary by Ivan M. Granger

God resides in that spotlessly pure place known as the heart...

Don't you just love the photograph of Bawa Muhaiyaddeen? There is something so serene in his eyes -- gentle, clear-seeing, intelligent -- yet also unsettlingly otherworldly, almost alien. Gazing at his picture, I almost feel I am witnessing a pure-hearted, wise extraterrestrial. Reminds me how fascinating and delightfully unexpected the spectrum of humanity can be...

And He exists beyond the beyond of religions,
Beyond the separations of race,
Religion, and philosophies.
