Nirguna&Saguna Brahman: On Facebook 9 June 2021

Shantanu Panigrahi
Brahman is non dual. That is advaita. It is a different conception from Vishista Advaita, which is Mayavadinand lived as qualified Advaita in which Brahman my be from Yuga to Yuga or from devotional bkakti to Sri Krishna will be shown that God is the Creator of Brahman and may override Brahman. Brahman cannot be worshipped. That is why there have nerver been any temples for puma to Brahman. It is without attributes. It is interesting what some say about nirguna Brahman and Saguna Brahman, namely that Brahman can be both. That is impossible from the scriptures, specifically from Bhagavad Gita in which the Creator God makes clear that only in times of great adharma does He manifest Himself in nirguna Brahman. That attrubute is not seemingly perennially present permanently in Brahman, only once in a Yuga. Saguna Brahman implies that Krishna is ever-present as manifested whereas in Vishista-advaita it is not ever-present but for most times remains dormant in the unmanifest form. Maya is periodic magic.

Raghavendra Rao, gunas are not attributes made of matter consisting of atoms. These are Consciousness a philosophical conception. Similarly the Mind is not an attribute of Brahman. It is imagination. When we think with our brains or write or speak we are expressing our imaginations. So what are you saying as being an attribute of Brahman. It is only in Vishista advaita that Brahman is overridden by the attribute of God. This is only experienced by a select few, not by the 99 per cent of humanity.
