Chat, Chai & Christ: Do you know that I am god?


Context: In the Gynana marga of Hinduism, a human is attempting to dispel illusion (maya) and attempts realization of the true self. It is believed that when a person truly reaches this state, they will recognize that they are part of God.

Friend: I am god

YS: Would you say that you created the universe

Friend: (After a bit if hesitation) why not, yes I created it.

YS: That’s great. Since you created the universe you should be able to answer any question I have about your creation. Can I ask you a few questions …?

Friend: I am not there yet in my pursuit, when I am there I should be able to answer the questions.

YS: So do you know when you will become god?

Friend: I don’t know.
