How can I see God?
disciple : Sir, please tell me how I can see God?
guru : Come with me and I shall show you.
He took the disciple to a lake, and both of them got into the water. Suddenly the teacher pressed the disciple’s head under the water.
After a few moments he released him and the disciple raised his head and stood up.
guru : How did you feel?
disciple : Oh! I thought I should die; I was panting for breath.
guru : When you feel like that for God, then you will know
you haven’t long to wait for His vision!
