Question: Why is it that I cannot see God?Sri Chinmoy: You do see God but you do not recognise Him. There are many people on earth whom you see, but you do not know who they are. But once somebody tells you who these people are, then later on when you see them, easily you can recognise them. For example, when you saw a policeman for the first time, you did not know what he was. But once your parents told you, the next time you saw a policeman you knew what he was. Similarly, when you see God, one day either your soul or your Guru will tell you who God is.
