You are not Christian, so substitute "Christ" and "God" with "Brahman" to apply it to the Gita. No other text explains this quite as beautifully:

12 Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by[a] one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14 Even so the body is not made up of one part but of many.
15 Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 18 But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. 19 If they were all one part, where would the body be? 20 As it is, there are many parts, but one body.

21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, 23 and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, 24 while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.

27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

Re: When all phenomena is erased

Just had to add this FINALE:

Some one in Cyber Space Posted:
Quote:
An entity without attributes cannot be the subject of speech, writing, or any other form of expression. As one member noted somewhat tongue-in-cheek, isn't being without attributes, itself an attribute?
To wit Some else in Cyber Space replied:
Quote:
That is like saying zero has no value. Zero is a number. And all other numbers have values. Therefore zero has value.
Out of the mouths of babas come profundities.

If you are a part of it then what worship? Should I worship myself?
