I cannot conceive of a personal God who would directly influence the actions of individuals, or would directly sit in judgment on creatures of his own creation. I cannot do this in spite of the fact that mechanistic causality has, to a certain extent, been placed in doubt by modern science. [He was speaking of Quantum Mechanics and the breaking down of determinism.] My religiosity consists in a humble admiration of the infinitely superior spirit that reveals itself in the little that we, with our weak and transitory understanding, can comprehend of reality. Morality is of the highest importance — but for us, not for God.
Interesting; perhaps you’ll find something insightful on this link I share with you, of Vedic texts. Free online read: http://vedabase.com/en 🙂
Thank you. My interest in Vedanta is mostly with the advaita branch of Shankaracharya, and I contribute in Advaita Vision site.
That’s totally fine. I know about that teaching. In fact, I have a post on my page about it. Of course, they are not my words. But as they say, ‘to each, his own.’ All the best.
