“ ‘The beauty of Swamiji nobody can imagine,’ Mrs. Allan once said. ‘His face, his hands, his feet, all were beautiful. Swami Trigunatita later said that Swamji’s hands were far more beautiful than any woman’s. His color would seem to change, some days being darker and some days lighter, but usually there was about it what can best be described as a golden glow.’ ” 27 ❊ ❊ ❊ God is true. The universe is a dream. Blessed am I that know this moment that I have been and shall be free all eternity; . . . that I know that I am worshipping only myself; that no nature, no delusion, had any hold on me. . . . I know myself. I am the Infinite. . . . How can there be death for me, or birth? . . . I am the one Existence. Nothing else exists. I am everything. (CW [1984]1:501)
