The many faces of God (a Hindu perspective)

Today as Ann was dropping off dry cleaning she and the woman at the counter fell into an unlikely conversation about God and religions.

Ann remarked on a favorite Gandhi insight, comparing God to a diamond and the religions of the world as viewing the diamond each through its own facet.

This Hindu woman then shared her perspective on the many ways of seeing God, using a personal analogy:

I am a worker. I am also many things. When you see me you see a worker . . . but I am also a mother, a wife, a daughter and a friend. I am all of these things and all of these are also me.

How you see me doesn’t change who I am . . . Because you see me one way doesn’t mean I’m not all these others as well.
