Quotes about God

“God is with form; He is without form. He is with attributes; He is without attributes. If an individual wants to see God as an infinite expanse of Light and Delight, God will come to that person as an infinite expanse of Light and Delight. But if he wants to see God as a most brilliant, most luminous being, then God will come to him like that.”

Sri Chinmoy, 1

“God is infinite Consciousness, infinite Bliss, yet he can also assume a finite form. He is infinite, He is finite; and at the same time He transcends both the infinite and the finite. He is life, He is death; yet again He is beyond both life and death.”

Sri Chinmoy, 2

“God wants to express Himself in each individual in a unique way. When we become consciously and fully one with God, we not only fulfil Him but we also fulfil ourselves.”

Sri Chinmoy, 3

“God and man: God and man are one. They are eternally one. God knows it. Man also will know it. He will.”

Sri Chinmoy, 4

“The purpose, the sole purpose of God’s creation is the fulfilment of His Vision and the fulfilment of His Reality. God has envisioned the Truth and the Reality, but He also wants to manifest it. Unless manifestation takes place, God feels that He will not be complete.”

Sri Chinmoy, 5

“No matter how God appears to us, we will feel ecstasy, divine ecstasy. Ecstasy is delight. When we are in our ordinary consciousness, we are disturbed by the many ugly, undivine things in the world. But when we see God, at that time everything appears beautiful to us. All is good and nothing appears ugly.”

Sri Chinmoy, 6

“God originated Himself from His own Silence.

God was One, but He wanted to become many. Why? He wanted to divinely enjoy Himself, to enjoy His Game, to enjoy the Truth in finite forms. He felt that if He remained all alone, there would be no joy, no Lila.”

Sri Chinmoy, 5

“God is both masculine and feminine. He is expressing Himself as female through nature, as Prakriti. He is fulfilling Himself as male through Purusha, the Unmanifest.”

Sri Chinmoy, 8

“There is one God called by many different names. I like the term ‘Supreme’. Other Masters have used different names. Jesus Christ used the term ‘Father’.”

 Sri Chinmoy, 9

“People often wonder how God creates life from nothing. However, the word ‘nothing’ is incorrect here. God does make life out of something and that something is His Light, His Consciousness-Light.”

Sri Chinmoy, 10

“Now, we have to know that God is the Creator. He is also the Player. He is playing His eternal Game. The more we play, the more we become conscious of the fact that we do nothing and we can do nothing. We are all instruments. He, Himself, is having all experiences in and through us.”

 Sri Chinmoy, 11

“Why does God exist? Why do we exist? We exist and God exists on earth and everywhere for only one thing: Joy-to create Joy and to receive Joy.”

 Sri Chinmoy, 12

“God is in everything, but we have to know that here on earth everything is relative. God is in filthy water, God is in poison, but if we drink it we will die. God is in everything, but God has also given us wisdom. We have to use our brain, our own conscious judgement.”

 Sri Chinmoy, 13

“God is Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent. He has various kinds of power, but His greatest adamantine Power is His Grace. The moment God uses His Grace for an individual, He offers His very Life-Breath to the seeker, for God and God’s Grace can never be separated.”

Sri Chinmoy, 14

“When we go beyond the barriers of desire and enter into the domain of aspiration, we see that God is in everything and, at the same time, He is beyond both good and evil.”

Sri Chinmoy, 13

“It is Peace that is the Mother and Father, Brother and Sister of God. So if we can have Peace, then we are not only getting God, but all God’s relatives as well.”

Sri Chinmoy,16

“God is everything. God is both personal and impersonal, with form and formless. God is beyond the limitations of the mind.”

Sri Chinmoy, 17

“We define something. We try to limit and bind it, but God the Infinite is limitless; thus we can never define Him.”

Sri Chinmoy, 17

God as love

“If we want to define God, we can define Him in millions of ways, but I wish to say that no definition of God can be as adequate as the definition of God as all Love. When we say ‘God’, if fear comes into our mind, then we are millions and billions of miles away from Him. When we repeat the name of God, if love comes to the fore, then our prayer, our concentration, our meditation, our contemplation are genuine. There can be no greater wisdom, no greater knowledge, than love.”

Sri Chinmoy, 19
