God Must Be Experienced

“Suppose I give a talk for three hours about blueberry pie. Can you taste it? No. I will be wasting my time. Instead, I have to give you the recipe: One cup of this, a tablespoon of that; put this together, mix, and then put it all in the oven.  

But even that is not enough. You can’t just take the recipe book, gold-gilt it, put on an altar, wave incense, and say, “Blueberry pie, blueberry pie”. You have to get the ingredients, cook them, and eat the pie… God is not something that can be talked of. God must be experienced. The day man started talking of God, he created all kinds of religious fights and quarrels.”    

–Swami Satchidananda (Indian Spiritual Teacher and, in 1966, Founder of Integral Yoga International, 1914-2002)
