This video is a spontaneous talk on the power of language (as distinct from other facets of reality). The unity of reality is also emphasized.

Reality is the undivided, inclusive, whole, almighty, omnipresent, omnipotent (all-powerful) “One.” Reality has many names in many languages. All of the languages of reality are creations within reality. All of the names of reality are creations within reality.

Reality has many identities, such as Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma or, in English, the Holy Father, the Holy Son, and the Holy Spirit. These identities do not isolate reality in to a trinity of three disconnected realities. There is no disconnection. The trinity is holy. All of reality is holy (whole, interconnected, interdependent in the arising of any particular development).

Reality is like a tree with many branches or a web with many strands or a gem with many facets. The reality of language is that many labels and metaphors can be used to reference the reality of language, such as the kingdom of God or the realm of heaven. In this video, the speaker emphasizes the simple and unitary (continuous, boundless, eternal) nature of reality, including the facet of reality called “language.”

Notice that all over this planet there are temples. All of them are the temples honoring a single reality, a single divinity- with many names in many languages. Some of the temples may be named in honor of the Holy Spirit and others in the name of the Holy Mother and so on. A hundred different languages may be used and many different alphabets. However, is there any temple that is not a temple to honor the only one that deserves to be called divine?
