Gyaneshwari 195

Gyaneshwari -Sant Gyaneshwar


Wisdom and Knowledge

12. Know that whatever conditions there are, whither they belong to the sattva, rajas or tamas quality, they arise from Me alone and are in Me, but I am not in them.

Know that whatever good, passionate and dull forms there are, they have all originated from Me. Just as the wakeful state does not sink in the deep waters of dream, so even though they have originated from Me, I am not in them. When a seed full of sap sprouts and later on turns into wood (51-55),

does the wood possess in it the quality of the seed? So although the qualities of goodness etc. arise from Me, I am not in their modifications. The clouds brushing against one another, does it contain water? The smoke, no doubt, comes out of fire, but does it contain fire? Likewise, all the modifications arise from Me, but I am not in them.
