In India God is everywhere, in myriad forms. Sometimes he is a tree, sometimes a mountain, sometimes a river, sometimes a sky, sun, moon and
stars, even a blade of grass. There is no escaping his all pervading presence. He envelopes you from all directions. You are compelled to feel his

incarnations.’ There is no conflict among them all as their source is one.
Let us salute Him before we turn the pages of this book to encounter Him in his many manifestations.
