(Kadamba Kanana Swami, 30 March 2013, Durban Ratha Yatra, South Africa, Inter-religious dialogue)
True God consciousness is about vision. It has to do with seeing God. After all, all religion is aiming at that – to see him, not only to see him sometimes, but to always see him.
The Bhagavad-gita points out that everything is related to him, so one must learn to see that. Whatever our eyes fall upon, we must learn to see that in the context of the bigger picture. We must see that beyond all the planets and the universe, there is the Supreme Lord. We should understand that everything emanates from him, and everything, all this energy, is connected to him.
One who has such a vision is truly a person who places God in the centre.
