TROTA | CHAPTER 4 | SEL0450 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA

|| 4.05 | BRAHMAN AS GOD OR ISHVARA ||

FOR THE INDIVIDUAL , GOD IS :

A magnified Self

The Cosmic Self who has all knowledge and all power

The Creator , the Preserver and the Destroyer of the universe , who , in unexcellable majesty , lords over the earth and the heaven , who fashions the sun , the moon and the stars , who extends far beyond the limitless space

The highest perfection and magnitude of the complete opposite of what the limited individual is

Unlimited in every sense

The Supreme Purusha , the Source of the entire creation

Excluding none , containing all within One Superhuman body

The Virat , the Universal Ruler , the absolute unifying form in which all beings are strung together like beads in a thread

The Hiranyagarbha , the inner animating life principle of everything

Ishvara , the universal consciousness that sustains all manifestation

That which beside there is none

Triumphant and glorying in Greatness

The ocean of all that is best at any place or time

The immediate presupposition and presence of whatever can ever be

The Antaryamin , the Inner Controller

The Avyakrita , the Unmanifest , beyond sense perception

The Sutratma or the Thread Soul that connects all selfs

The Mahaprana , the Cosmic Vital Energy

Hailing as the supreme object of all adoration and worship

The manifested Form of Reality , Ishvara

The Saguna BRAHMAN , the Absolute endowed with all glorious attributes .
