Yes, God very much exists. But, ‘where and how’ is a million dollar question!
God is neither a majestic figure residing high up in the skies, nor is he an Almighty, in the sense that he can lift heavyweights or cure Corona virus for you and me. This is an absolute myth!

Really speaking, “God is in every creature whether visible or invisible. God is in creature, not in creation”, says Param Pujya Dadashri.

God exists in the form of ‘the eternal pure Soul’ present in every living creature. There are infinite invisible creatures which cannot be seen even under a microscope; God resides in each of them too!

God Is The Real Self
We believe this body to be our self, isn’t it? But actually the ‘Pure Soul’ residing in the body is what we really are; and that verily is God!

God’s Role Is To Only See And Know Whatever Is Happening
While playing this role, God remains totally detached! He neither gets bothered seeing the Corona virus spread left, right and centre and taking away lakhs of people’s lives throughout the world; nor does God become desirous of curing this virus. He dwells in his natural state of eternal bliss, and has nothing but pure love for every living being on this Earth! These statements may look difficult to comprehend right now. However, this is the ultimate truth. And one realizes it when one attains Self-Realization!

To Understand Things As They Really Are Is Called Real Knowledge
It is out of ignorance that we believe ourselves to be the body, or the name given to the body. Out of ignorance, we create our world of suffering! The fact is that the body, the name and even Corona virus for that matter are all mere karmic effects!

The Whole World Functions On The Foundation Of This Karmic ‘Effect’
Whatever good or bad we can see happening in this world is merely a karmic effect. Whatever happens in this world is a result of Nature’s law of cause and effect. The karma that one has bound (cause) in the past life, one experiences its results (effect) in the next life as effects of karma. Good causes produce good effects and one gets good nature, good body and a healthy mind. On the other hand, bad causes produce bad effects. So, whatever misery befalls us today, be it Corona or anything else, is the result of our own past karmas.

Each one of us is experiencing one’s own karmas. The law of Nature is such that the slightest misery we give to any living being returns to us in the form of misery. And the slightest help we render to any living being returns to us in the form of help at the given time. So, if we want to be happy, we must never hurt any living being at all through our thoughts, words or action. If we understand just this much, we will get the solution to all our worldly problems!
Hence, we are wholely and solely responsible for our actions (karma). The responsibility is ours! It is our own deeds, based on which, Nature rewards or punishes us. It is Nature that keeps everything and everyone organized.

God Does Not Meddle In This Natural Process At All
So many evidences come together to make any event happen. Corona virus happens due to coming together of scientific circumstantial evidences. And the coming together of evidences is a natural process, which is governed by the laws of nature. That is why Lord Krishna has said, ‘God has not created this world; it has come about naturally.’

We use God's name in order to escape from our responsibility. The right understanding is that God has never done anything whatsoever in this world. He is neither the Creator nor does He run the world. By fact, whatever we can see and feel in this world, there is not an iota of doership of God in any of it. God does not meddle at all in it.

Not knowing who the real doer is, we levy accusations on God. And doing so, we only take more liabilities on our head by binding enormous karma.
All Our Life We Keep Looking For God Outside, But Actually God Needs To Be Realized Inside
When it is time for any karma to come into fruition, the circumstances come together, give the karmic fruits and the karma finishes. Circumstances come together to finish the karmic accounts. But, owing to ignorance, we feel, “It is happening to me!” And furthermore, we look upon God to come and cure us.

By wrongly believing these karmic effects to be our self, we keep binding karma after karma (causes after causes) and we keep creating our new world of suffering (karmic effects). These causes will not stop as long as, ‘I am John (the reader may insert his name)’ is engrained in our belief. Only when Gnani, the Enlightened One, awakens us and makes us realize our real Self, will the creation of new karma stop. With the grace of Gnani, we gain the right knowledge and hence the illusion breaks!!!

After Self-Realization, we realize that, ‘these effects (of catching Corona virus) are natural occurrences and they cannot happen to me. I am separate and this body is separate. I am a Pure Soul (God). I am only the knower and observer of the karmic effects.’ With this awareness, all the suffering comes to a halt!

So, let’s not wait for God to come and cure Corona virus. Rather, let’s attain Self-Realization and separate ourselves from every suffering on this Earth. If this interests you, for more information, you may please visit

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifest within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization
