Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

BG Chap 13 - The Paramātmā's svarūpa - All-pervading

The Supreme Truth exists inside and outside of all beings, who are His products, just as ether and other elements exist within and outside all bodies of which they are the cause. He moves and does not move. All non-moving and moving beings are only Him, since He is the cause and they are the effect. He is difficult to understand because of His subtle nature. Having a form of bliss and knowledge that can be known only by ātmā, and not by material senses, He cannot be known like the devatās. For the ignorant, He is situated far away but for the wise He is near, being situated as the antaryāmī within the person. No one can conceive Him in their minds nor see Him with their eyes. But He can be known by senses endowed with bhakti, just as an ear well trained in music can understand the different notes. Thus, though far away (not perceived by the eye or ear), He is close (perceivable).
