God

ByM.K. Gandhi, Neerja Arun Gupta

God is ethics and morality; God is fearlessness. God is the source of Light and Life and yet He is above and beyond all these. God is conscience. One may banish the word 'God' from the Congress but one has no power to banish the Thing itself. And then we have a thing in Hindu philosophy, viz., God alone is and nothing else exists, and the same truth you find emphasized and exemplified in the kalma of Islam. There-you find it clearly stated that God alone is and nothing else exists. To say that God permits evil in this world may not be pleasing to the ear. But if He is held responsible for the good, it follows that He has to be responsible for the evil too. The bhajan of the evening said that man's highest endeavour lies in trying to find God, said Gandhiji. God could be found only through love, not earthly, but divine.
