Verse of the Week: 11th August 2011

न देवो विद्यते काष्ठे

न पाषाणे न मृण्मये।

भावेषु विद्यते देवः

तस्मात् भावो हि कारणम्॥


The Lord lives not in the wooden carving

 Nor in the sculpture made of stone or clay;

The Lord lives in our thoughts

And it is through our thoughts that we see him dwell in everything.

Dr Varanasi Ramabrahmam
