Bhagavan Nityananda's Punyatithi

In Honor of Bhagavan Nityananda’s Lunar Punyatithi

I was deeply moved by a phrase from Bhagavan Nityananda’s teaching: "The Supreme Being dwells in everyone in equal fullness.” I read the words again and again. I especially kept saying to myself "everyone" and "in equal fullness." I thought of all the people in the world, in all their diversity of backgrounds, character, ages, and sizes. I then mentally applied Bade Baba's teaching by holding the awareness that the Supreme Being is in every one of them "in equal fullness."
 
The next time I went to work, I found myself naturally applying this teaching with the patients and families that I see at an urgent care clinic. As I met with each one, I was aware that, amidst their diversity and in all their uniqueness, the Supreme Being was in each of them in equal fullness. I felt a deep respect for each person; it was a heart-opening experience.

This morning, after my recitation of Shri Guru Gita, I performed manasa puja, mental worship, to Bade Baba. As I stayed absorbed in the experience of stillness from my practice, a feeling arose that the divine fullness I was experiencing is what I am made of. It is right within me and I am the one who can choose in any given moment to access this fullness.
 
And now I have received exactly the same message from this excerpt! I feel so blessed.

The first phrase that caught my attention was "The Supreme Being dwells in everyone in equal fullness," and especially the words equal and fullness. The word fullness was so encouraging! It affirmed to me that I, like all other human beings, embody the divinity of my Creator fully, completely, without any inherent limits. How extraordinary!

And the word equal reminded me that this divine fullness is equally present in every one of my fellow human beings, without exception. What a divine inspiration for experiencing the unity across all humanity, and for acknowledging the divine presence—"the inner Self in a visible form"— in each person I encounter, or even think about!
