Some Thoughts on Ishwara or God

space
Ishwara or God is an intangable concept which cannot be expressed well in words.However well we try to express, it won't be sufficient to explain the concept.Ishwara or God must be the one who created Sun, Moon, Mountains, Ocean etc.It is not possible for a mortal to create such structures.The diversity of the structures clearly points out to ruling out man or animal behind the creation.God is formless, omnipresent and bodyless.We cannot see him with our naked eyes because of the above said characteristics.He is not placed somewhere.He is everywhere.God is inside us and present in top,bottom and around us everywhere.We should not forget that the one is present in everything.

We should remember it everytime because then we cannot feel to think about negetivity and bad thoughts.The meaning of the word Parameshwara is the ruler of the whole universe.The omnipresent god knows everything.So if he can hear and see what wrongs we commit, we will be conscious to avoid the bad practises.So we cannot say lies, nor bad mouth a person, cannot think of bad ideas and thoughts.

The following sooktha (wise words) from Ishavasya upanishad cements the above said idea.


Om Isavasyamidam sarvam yatkiñca jagatyam jagat
tena tyaktena bhuñjitha ma grdhah kasyasvid dhanam

Translation:


God resides in the entire universe and in all that has everpervading qualities in the universe.Consume what ever god has given for your comforts.But this wealth is not anyone's (belong to everyone) so do not wish to consume it with greed.
