Concentration. Contemplation. Meditation.

The great rishis tell us God is in everyone, everything. Imagine a rishi, in the forest, full of Light, seeing God in all. A student comes along, then another, they all can see he is someone special and they ask him questions. He tells them to see God everywhere. They can’t. They just can’t. Finally, the rishi may have said, “Ok, sit here in front of this stone and at least learn to see God in one simple thing, this rock. Then we’ll progress from there.”

Maybe that was the first Sivalingam.

When the heart is hard and parched up,
    come upon me with a shower of mercy.

When grace is lost from life,
    come with a burst of song.

When tumultuous work raises its din on all sides
    shutting me out from beyond,
    come to me, my lord of silence, with thy peace and rest.

When my beggarly heart sits crouched, shut up in a corner,
    break open the door, my king,
    and come with the ceremony of a king.

When desire blinds the mind with delusion and dust,
    O thou holy one, thou wakeful,
    come with light and thunder.

Rabindranath Tagore
Gitanjali
