Home of god - religion


The first hymn of Isha Upanishad says - anything active beings inhabit the world here, God resides in all of them; enjoy what is given by Him and don't seek other's wealth.

All devout colonize consider in God, who resides in heaven. It is their communal belief that God gives health, happiness and sensation in life. Only He can rescue them from all trouble. For this they worship God in temples, churches and mosques and pray for mercy.

To such dutiful people, Isha Upanishad tells that God resides only in active beings, who inhabit this world. Where their is life, their is God. Where there is no life, as in a dead body or a background object, there is no God. Both spiritualism and knowledge tells that affair does not exist. According to science, be relevant is nonentity but a form of energy. In the universe the sum total of all energies is zero. According to spiritualism, affair does not exist; if at all it exists, it exists in the consciousness of a being. In the universe only God or life exists. When it is said, God is universal and all pervasive, it means, there is nil but God exists.

The essence of a being is its soul(atman). Body is consumable and momentary; but soul is eternal and ever existent. Soul is the cause of life and consciousness of a being. So long as soul resides in a being, a body is alive. The instant soul departs, a being is dead. No exterior or imaginary God can give life to a dead body. So this soul is God.

The hymn added describes that one be supposed to admit what is exceptional by God residing in oneself and must not seek other's wealth. When one realises that God resides in him, one ought to acknowledge what is given by Him only. Soul or God has given us life and consciousness. He has given senses to perceive the world; mind to think and choose and hands to work for earning. For this we are able to accomplish the lot in life. We can take the examples of booming men of the world. So there is no need to seek other's help or wealth. When we depend on others, even on exterior God, we fail to realise God within. God in is real and existent. The value of choice and disinterestedness is fully realised when we fully depend on ourselves. We are enlightened once we realise this fact.

This is the down-to-earth and commonsensical denotation of the first hymn of Isha Upanishad. However, so far this hymn has not been interpreted this way. This is because, dutiful leaders at all times assignment an outside God and build a fear psychosis. By this they rule over their followers and lead a comfortable life lacking working. Pious leaders have continually worked in conievence with rulers in order to disseminate their empty message. Rulers have also hunted their help in order to defeat their subjects and to fight with other states. Now holy fundamentalists originate colonize to fight for God, so that they may enter into heaven after death. These are nobody but loss of sight and ignorance. Now time has come to acknowledge the truth that God resides in all beings only.
