Question: Where is god?
Thank you for writing with your questions.
God is situated within the hearts of all living entities. This is confirmed in the Gita as follows:
hrid-deshe ‘rjuna tisthati
“The Supreme Lord resides in the hearts of all living entities.”
This form of the Lord in everyone’s heart is known as Paramatma. It is from Him that we receive knowledge and remembrance.
In addition to being situated in the heart, God is also situated everywhere and in everything. The all-pervasive form of God is known as Brahman. The Vedas describe this as follows:
sarvam khalv idam brahma
“Everything is a manifestation of God.”
Yet, there is also a form of the Lord where He is situated in the spiritual realm of Vaikuntha as a person. This form of the Lord is known as Bhagavan.
Thus God exists everywhere by these three forms (Brahman, Paramatma and Bhagavan). These are three features of the same absolute truth. They are all simultaneously one.
