The Realisation of the Absolute : 4.5.4.



Chapter 4: The Nature of Reality : 5.4
5. Brahman as God or Ishvara-4.

The relative individual can read only relative facts even in the highest Truth, however magnified and grand its conceptions be. For the individual man, God is a magnified Man, the Cosmic Person who has all knowledge and all power.

He is the Creator, the Preserver and the Destroyer of the universe, who, in His 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.

He is the highest perfection and magnitude of the complete opposite of what the limited individual is. God is unlimited in every sense.

He is the Supreme Purusha, the Father of the entire creation. He excludes none, all are within His superhuman body.

He is the Virat, the universal King, the absolute unifying form in which all beings are strung together like beads in a thread; He is Hiranyagarbha, the inner animating life-principle of everything; He is Ishvara, the universal consciousness that sustains all manifestation
.
There is none besides Him. He triumphs and glories in His own Greatness. He is the ocean of all that is best at any place or time. He is the immediate presupposition and presence of whatever can ever be.

He is the Antaryamin, the Inner Controller; the Avyakrita, the Unmanifest, beyond sense-perception; the Sutratma or the Thread-Soul that connects all self; the Mahaprana, the Cosmic Vital Energy. He hails as the supreme object of all adoration and worship.
