'This Heart within us is God Himself'

Recommended Posts


eṣa prajāpatir yad hṛdayam, etad brahma, etad sarvam. -Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
('This Lord of all created beings is the Heart within us, this is God Himself, this is All.')


ਹਿਰਦੈ ਜਗਜੀਵਨੁ ਸਦ ਵਸਿਆ ਤਜਿ ਕਾਮੁ ਕ੍ਰੋਧੁ ਅਹੰਕਾਰਾ ॥

Hiradhai Jagajeevan Sadh Vasiaa Thaj Kaam Krodhh Ahankaaraa ||

The Lord, the Life of the world, ever abides in his heart, and he renounces sexual desire, anger and egotism.

ਸੋਰਠਿ (ਮਃ ੩) (੭) ੨:੨ - ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੬੦੨ ਪੰ. ੧੧
Raag Sorath Guru Amar Das

ਸਦਾ ਹਜੂਰਿ ਰਵਿਆ ਸਭ ਠਾਈ ਹਿਰਦੈ ਨਾਮੁ ਅਪਾਰਾ ॥

Sadhaa Hajoor Raviaa Sabh Thaaee Hiradhai Naam Apaaraa ||

The Lord is ever-present, permeating and pervading all places; the Name of the Infinite Lord is enshrined within the heart.

ਸੋਰਠਿ (ਮਃ ੩) (੭) ੨:੩ - ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੬੦੨ ਪੰ. ੧੧
Raag Sorath Guru Amar Das


आविः संनिहितं गुहाचरन्नाम महत्पदमत्रैतत्समर्पितम् ।
एजत्प्राणन्निमिषच्च यदेतज्जानथ सदसद्वरेण्यं परं विज्ञानाद्यद्वरिष्ठं प्रजानाम् ॥ १ ॥

āviḥ saṃnihitaṃ guhācarannāma mahatpadamatraitatsamarpitam |
ejatprāṇannimiṣacca yadetajjānatha sadasadvareṇyaṃ paraṃ vijñānādyadvariṣṭhaṃ prajānām || 1 ||
'The Luminous Brahman moves within the heart and is the great support of all; in Him is centered everything that moves, breathes and blinks. O disciples, know that to be your Self—that which is both gross and subtle, which is adorable, supreme and beyond the reach of man's knowledge and highest of all.' (Mundaka Upanishad 2.2.1) 


Mantra 11

eko deva sarvabhūteu gūha sarvavyāpī sarvabhūtāntarātmā /
karmādhyaka sarvabhūtādhivāsa sākī cetā kevalo nirguaś ca // 6.11 //

The non-dual and resplendent Lord is hidden in all beings. All-pervading, the inmost Self of all creatures, the impeller to actions, abiding in all things, He is the Witness, the Animator and the Absolute, free from gunas. He is the one without a second, yet he is hidden in every being. He is all pervasive, the Self of all. He gives to all beings the fruits of their actions, and he is the support of all. He is the witness, bestower of consciousness, without attributes and unconditioned.

Bhagvad Gita says
upadrashtaanumantaa cha bhartaa bhoktaa maheshwarah
paramaatmeti chaapyukto dehe'smin purushah parah // 13.23 //
The Supreme Purusha in this body is also called the Witness, the Approver, the Supporter, the Experiencer, the Sovereign Lord and the Supreme Self.
