He Is Omnipresent

Swami Ramdas

Passages for Meditation

In my heart I found my Beloved.
Now wherever I turn, His face I see
In all beings and things – great and small.
His light illumines all space.
He is there in nature’s beauty.
He is present in men, birds, and beasts –
His power pervades all the worlds.
He is Love, Peace, and Joy.

Swami Ramdas (1884-1963) was a south Indian mystic, whose spiritual practice was based on repetition of the mantram. This passage is published in Easwaran’s spiritual anthology, “God Makes the Rivers to Flow.” The audio recording is by Eknath Easwaran’s wife, Christine Easwaran.
