The God Concept (please see description)

You have not realized God, if you say your God is better,
And detract from another, his source of comfort;
You have realized God, only when you help another
Achieve closeness with his God, and not with your own.

‘Cause in ‘realizing’ you realize, that God is a concept,
That He She is but NONE, free of all religions;
And it’s our creation the concept that limits the sacred
And finds comfort in a concept, than in realizing the sacred.

One lights upon this revelation, being true to his own,
You are only securing your own comfort, if you promote your own;
‘Cause Truth needs no religion, nor numbers to make it strong,
Only a genuine seeking, for Truth is its own protection

It stands alone!

Truth, though to be realized individually, is universal, and not the property of any one person or religion, to be fought over.

Artist's Description

“… Truth needs no label: it is neither Buddhist, Christian, Hindu nor Moslem. It is not the monopoly of anybody. Sectarian labels are a hindrance to the independent understanding of Truth, and they produce harmful prejudices in men’s minds.
This is true not only in intellectual and spiritual matters, but also in human relations. When, for instance, we meet a man, we do not look on him as a human being, but we put a label on him…and regard him with all the prejudices associated with that label in our mind. “
– What the Buddha Taught by Ven.Walpola Rahula (1978)
