Heard this beautiful definition of God, attributed to Nicholas Cusa, worth sharing...The definition of God as ' God is an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere. ' ..This reminded me of the opening verse of Ishavasya Upanishad
"The entire universe is permeated by God (Isavasyam idam sarvam). "
Thought this amazing mystic "M", whose experiences sent shockwaves down my spine, is worth sharing.. I hastened to order his autobiography.
" Apprenticed to a Himalayan Master" . This amazingly simple person's narration of first hand experiences of his mystical and eerie sojourns, studded with nuggets of wisdom, will surely impress you!
