Where is God, when Nature unleashes Her Fury !

Now people are asking ( when natural calamities strike ), where is God ?

In this context, an Aurobindonian quotation comes to mind.

" We have to understand that Nature devouring everything, of Time consuming our children, of Death universal and ineluctable are all the Supreme Godhead in one of His Cosmic figures. The torment of the couch of pain and evil by which we are racked is His touch, as well as sweetness, happiness and pleasure. The discords of the world are God's discords, and only by analysing them and accepting them can we reach at the supreme concords of His universal harmony, the summits and the thrilled vastnesses of His transcendent and Cosmic Ananda. It is only when we see with the eye of complete union that we find the calm and beautiful face of the All Blissful Godhead and the touch which tests our imperfection, the touch of the Friend and the builder of the spirit in Man !  For Truth is the foundation of spirituality and courage its soul ! "

Did not Lord Krishna say " Kalosmi ", I am Time, the All Devourer, the All Destroyer !

Mrithyu sarva haraschaham
Uthbhavasya bhavishyatham
Keerthir sree vak cha nareenam
Smritir dhema dhriti kshama !
( B G )
