Two Hundred Mirrors is the first discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Berlin, Germany. The discourse was delivered in English on the evening of 1979 May 17. This discourse is the thirteenth chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 12.[1]

Synopsis

Parama Puruśa is omnipotent, but He cannot do two things: one, He cannot create another Parama Puruśa; and, two, He cannot hate anybody. Whoever comes near Him becomes one with Him. So Parama Puruśa remains a singular entity. Secondly, Parama Puruśa creates everybody in His mind; He cannot hate his own mental creation. So Parama Puruśa, although omnipotent, cannot do these two things.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by stating that there are three categories of devotees. The best devotee would be the one who thinks Parama Purusa belongs to her/him only and to no one else. Anandamurti explains that for devotion to occur, the object of ideation should be only Parama Purusa. That ideation must persist until one merges in Him (a unilateral movement).[1]

Anandamurti continues by stating that a devotee always becomes a universalist. Because the object of the devotee's ideation is unlimited and all pervasive, the devotee cannot hate anyone. Rather, the devotee wants to serve all entities and looks upon them as the creation of the one infinite source.[1]
