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)

Everything is God

Everything is God. Human or animal, sage or scoundrel, in fact, the entire universe, is God, the Supreme Spirit.


The name of God used here is Narayana, meaning Vishnu, whose avatar Krishna is one of the best-loved in India. It is surprising to think that a "scoundrel" (the original text that I am paraphrasing uses "knave") is also the beloved "Supreme Spirit."

Again, to cast it in Christian terms, there would be no more of God in Jesus than in the criminals between whom he hung on the cross.
