————- atah pumbhir dvija-sresthä varnäsrama-vibhägasah
svanusthitasya dharmasya samsiddhir hari-tosanam [SB 1.2.13]
So atah, therefore, in the previous verse it was decided who is qualified to see God. God is there within yourself. He is not far away. Not that you have to go many miles away to see God. Pasyanty ätmani cätmänam bhaktyä sruta-grhitayä. Just like you are searching out something, you do not know what the thing is like, you are harassed. But if somebody knows what the thing is like, “Why you are harassing yourself? Here is the thing. Take it,” you can get it immediately. Similarly, God is not far away, God is very near to him, side by side, jivätmä and Paramätmä. You are sitting with God, you simply do not know how to see. But that qualification, we have explained yesterday, is the eagerness, “Yes, I want to see.” When you want to see… Just like Dhruva Mahäräja. ———–
