Excerpts from Swami Venkatesananda's writings

When "God" is given as the answer to our questions, the question is not answered, but the quest is intensified.
The verbal answer is but a word. Truth eludes words.
One cannot but appreciate the need for a form in worship, but that form by itself is a dead body.
If I need a form and I cling to that form, it is like sleeping with a dead body.
I must make sure that the person I am sleeping with is alive!
So we need neither the form alone nor the spirit alone, but a spirit in form, a form enclosing the spirit.
Maybe, when the "lander on Mars" scans in the direction of the earth, he does not see it at all, and decides it does not exist or at best sees it as a particle of dust which, if magnified a million times, resembles a rounded anthill, with individual ants creeping over it.
