The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Inner God

DEFINITIONS

Inner God: A concept found in many religious and mystical traditions, it is the idea that within each person is some kind or aspect of God or the Divine. Magickians try to manifest the powers of the Divine. Others debate the "quantity" of the Inner God. That is, some say there is only a tiny bit of the Divine within us while others contend that we are gods but don't recognize it. Some mystics try to manifest this godhood. Another way of looking at the concept is that it is our inner, essential divinity, the source of inspiration, life, love, etc. Other names for the Inner God include "Christ Immanent," the "Christos," the "Buddha within," and "Brahmapura."
