Dear Rachel,

The Bhagavad Gita gives a poetic and inspiring description of the nature of the individual. This great Scripture tells us that we are the immortal soul that can never be destroyed. We are sparks of the infinite consciousness of God, and have played many different parts in past lives, but none of them have significance other than the fact that we are a part of God’s great dream.

So when asking the question “Who am I?”, Master’s answer is a good one: Just a bulge on the great ocean of God’s consciousness. The same answer applies to “Who was I?” and “Who will I be?”

In divine friendship,
Nayaswami Devi
