The Endless Quest for Him is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1978 November 1 in Kolkata, India. This discourse is the sixth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 4.[1]

Synopsis

Humans are unable to think anything original: they can only think about those objects they have previously seen in the external world. Therefore, as people cannot see or recognize Parama Puruśa in the external world with their sense organs (the very capacity of the sense organs to see or hear something has been given by Parama Puruśa Himself), they are unable to think of Him. He cannot be attained through thought as there is no opportunity to see Him in the external world. So we can only say to Him, "I don’t know what you look like but I send my salutations to you in whatever form you may be."

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that human intellect is limited and likewise its ability to measure or judge anything in the world. Brhat means an entity so great that it is beyond the scope of evaluation. When that entity is not only great but also has the capacity to make others great, it is called Brahma. Anandamurti then explains that those who presume that nature is an independent entity able to produce an original creation are wrong. Nature is a physical force guided by human intellect, which is guided by Supreme intelligence and its divine force. No physical force or limited intellect can produce such a well-ordered universe. Anandamurti goes on saying that devotees are more intelligent then intellectuals because they understand that everything is guided by the Supreme, He who remains beyond the intellect. Devotees say that by remaining unperceived and unrecognized, He imbues them with an endless desire to search for Him and attain Him. In such way human beings become greater.[1]
