"'The concept of merging with God is not a right concept. The creature cannot merge with the Creator, because they are two different entities. The right thinking is that one should yearn to become spiritually, not physically, close to God. This kind of experience is quite possible. The method of attaining this is contemplation. When you read the scriptures and other relevant literature, also when you observe the world around, you will discover the Creator of the world. You will find the signs of the attributes of the Creator in nature and creation.
