Realising God is Like Churning Butter

As from the wood the infested fire can be manifested by proper manupulation or as butter can be churned out of the milk so also the presence of the Lord as Paramatma can be felt by the process of legitimate hearing and chanting of the transcendental subject.

As from the wood the infested fire can be manifested by proper manupulation or as butter can be churned out of the milk so also the presence of the Lord as Paramatma can be felt by the process of legitimate hearing and chanting of the transcendental subject.

As fire is kindled from the wood by another piece of fire similarly the divine consciousness of man can be kindled up by another divine grace. His Divine Grace the Spiritual master can kindle up the spiritual fire from the woodlike living entity by imparting proper spiritual messages injected through the receptive ear. Therefore one is required to approach the proper spiritual master with receptive ear only and the Divine existence is thus gradually realised.
