The Original Absolute God Is Unimaginable And Omnipotent by dattaswami1: 3:24am On Sep 26, 2022
The original absolute God is unimaginable and omnipotent. Between these two adjectives, I give more importance to ‘unimaginable’ because we say that God is said to be omnipotent when He does an impossible thing and such potency of God is naturally unimaginable. If you say that God is omnipotent, the word ‘omni’ may be interpreted by somebody as all possible things and in such case the word ‘omni’ can’t mean all impossible things also. If you say that the word ‘omni’ means all impossible or unimaginable things, the other meaning of the word ‘omni’, which is all possible things is automatically included.

This means that God doing all impossible things can naturally do all possible things also. The unimaginable power doing all impossible things is called Māyā and the imaginable power doing possible things is Prakṛti. God is specifically told as possessor of Māyā (Māyinaṃ tu Maheśvaram- Gītā) doing impossible things because it automatically includes possessor of Prakṛti doing all possible things also. Just like a father retains some property with him and gives some property to issues, God kept Māyā with Him exclusively and gave the power of Prakṛti to His issues called souls.

But, the souls are trying to become the absolute unimaginable God also just like the issue tries to grab the property possessed by the father. Anyway, the father will give his property to his issue only through will and similarly, God will give His Māyā power to the soul whenever He has will. Hence, calling the original absolute God as ‘Unimaginable God’ is more proper than to call Him as ‘Omnipotent God’. Unimaginable God naturally means omnipotent God and reverse may not be proper based on the above analysis.

4) Unimaginable God naturally means omnipotent God and also naturally means Omniscient and Omnipresent because omniscience and omnipresence are unimaginable or impossible aspects for any item. Even though the cosmic inert energy is omnipresent, it is not omniscient since it is inert. The omnipresence of the Unimaginable God shall be taken in the effective sense only and not in the literal sense because if God is present everywhere (omnipresent) everybody and everything in this world must be pure and sacred and demonism should not have existed at all.

You need not doubt that how God can be omniscient without being omnipresent because God is omnipotent and any impossible thing is possible to Him. Even in this imaginable domain of creation, a king knows everything happening anywhere in his kingdom with the help of his power of the department of secret agents. Therefore, Unimaginable God means omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent (Omnipresent in the effective sense only.).

5) The word ‘unimaginable’ means either substratum or substance (dravya) or nature or quality (guṇa). Then, we can say that the unimaginable quality depends upon God, who is the substratum. The quality is always a form of energy and the substance is a form of matter only. The school of substratum (Vedanta) says that a substratum is needed as the support for any quality. They say that the blue colour (a form of energy) is based on the lotus flower (a form of matter).

The school of energy (Śākteya) says that God is the unimaginable quality itself and no substratum is needed for the energy. This school is also correct because the electromagnetic radiations travel in vacuum without the support of any medium. Both these schools are quarrelling based on the examples of the imaginable domain or creation. They forget that the Unimaginable God or creator is Unimaginable domain. We can’t say that the Unimaginable God is either matter or energy.

The fun is that Vedanta says that awareness is the substratum and awareness itself is a specific work form of inert energy resulting in a specific functioning nervous system! The analysis of the items of the creation is the actual subject of ancient logic (Tarkaśāstra) or modern science. Therefore, the conclusion is that the Unimaginable God is beyond imaginable domain and no quarrels can take place in understanding the Unimaginable God. If a discussion takes place about Unimaginable God, it will be a quarrel among some deaf people!
