Imagine, ten children go to a cloth shop and choose some material which they like. These children are then taken to a tailor, and each one gives measurements appropriate to themselves and get a suitably stitched shirt. All the children have used the same cloth to get their shirts, but each one has different measurements. This is the right thing to do! If the tailor stitched all shirts to the same size and asked all the children to wear those shirts, would it be proper? If the child is not given a shirt that fits properly, he would be very uncomfortable wearing it. Similarly, God (Brahman) is shining in the hearts of everyone and depending upon their own picture of the effulgent Brahman present within them, everyone has the right to adore that particular Name and Form. Without this freedom, how can you understand and connect with the limitless, infinite, and omnipresent Divine? (Summer Showers in Brindavan 1974, Vol 1, Ch 5)
