Deus non alligatur. God is not bound. Nibbanam paramam sukham. Unbinding is the Highest Happiness. The Heart is Divinity. God is the primal radiance of Divinity. Nature is the primal manifestation of Divinity. The Buddha is the primal realization of Divinity. La ilaha il Allah. Allah is Complete Wholeness.

Take Up and Read!

I was saying these things and weeping in the most bitter contrition of my heart, when, lo, I heard the voice as of a boy or girl, I know not which, coming from a neighbouring house, chanting, and oft repeating, "Take up and read; take up and read."
-- St. Augustine

The Beloved has produced two books for us to read: the Book of Nature, and the Book of God. The Book of Nature is the Beloved's Creation, Light, Atoms, Molecules, Life, Plants, Animals, and Men and Women. The Book of God is the Buddha, the Christ, and silent, unwritten, and written words thereof, such as the Bible, the Qur'an, and the Vedas.

The Book of Nature is the Jivanta.
The Book of God is the Buddha.

The Guru is not just the Buddha, the Christ, but also the Jivanta, the Creation.

Read any Book, and that Book will take you to the Beloved.

Some say the Guru is greater than God, as the Guru incarnates and has to deal with that, and all of us! ;-)

Yes, there's Truth in any and every one of those books, if you want to find it.

Tibetan Buddhists often state a similar idea, that the Guru is greater than Buddha!
