At the Feet of Sri Ramakrishna
Finding wisdom for our everyday lives in the words of one of India's greatest saints
(more about Sri Ramakrishna)

Can You See the Stars in the Daytime?

You see many stars in the night sky, but cannot find them at midday. Can you say, then, that there are no stars in the heavens in the daytime?

So even though we humans do not see the Almighty in the daylight of our ignorance, we must not say, "There is no God."


We start with a great example of the common-sense, humble nature of Sri Ramakrishna's sayings.

Sure the skeptic can pick this apart: "We can't see the stars because the sun is brighter. What is brighter than God?" etc.

But it's a beautiful illustration nonetheless. The full panoply of the kosmos is up there, all day long. And we're so blinded by what is near us (our daily worries, perhaps?) that we can't see it.
