The People's God is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1978 October 23 in Patna, India. This discourse is the first chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 4.[1]

Synopsis

Gańábharańaḿ – many mythological gods and goddesses are laden with necklaces, rings, padma, gadá, cakra, etc. But the people's god (He is the people's god, as no money is required to worship Him) has no ornaments, as ornaments are costly. His devotees, His followers, His disciples are His ornaments. He requires no other ornaments. He is nirguńa because He is beyond the bondage of the guńas (attributes).

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that all expressions or manifestations come from the Supreme. He is the controller of actions, the supervisor as well as the witnessing entity. Without His reflection, nothing can exist. He is the shelter of all physical and psychic beings. Anandamurti then explains that without the permission of Parama Purusa the operative principle cannot function. The cosmic entity is also termed Kevalam (the only one Supreme Lord) and Gunahiina (beyond attribution and free of bondage). Anandamurti goes on explaining that unlike mythological gods, the people's God wears no adornments. His disciples are His precious jewels, and to worship Him no money is needed.[1]
