WHAT IS GOD??? A QUESTION WHICH HAUNTED HUMANITY FOR TIMES IMMEMORIAL!
I want to give my perspective on this:
Intelligence of the brain varies from species to species! Apart from this every living being has been provided with unique senses which help them survive, by the nature. Science says that life has developed mechanisms to sustain in it’s varied form and naturalists and spiritualists say nature or God has bestowed it. It doesn’t matter what it is, but every perspective acknowledges this fact.
It was in the so called higher IQ species is reasoning and utilization of available forms of matter for survival is seen but with observable reduction of few natural instincts from the lower species…
Him sapiens are by far the most advanced/highest in the heirarchy and his brain powers are far superior in these faculties of reasoning, questioning, believing, rationalizing, conceptualizing and thus derived of many subtle powers. He was capable of getting answers to all his natural needs and intelligence based queries!
And this gave rise to the concept of God! And in his pursuit of answers to all the self generated questions of his brain, he settled for an erstwhile socially consensual theory/belief/faith etc etc. And here stops the seeking nature of his intellect. Because now he puts all his questions on the ‘Almighty God’ and justifies his actions and beliefs in relation to the dogmatic belief system he belongs to, PERIOD!!! The evolution of thought process ceases!
But DHARMIC Religions/Traditions have a completely different approach out of the scores of religious beliefs systems. In here they don’t impose a belief on the intellect but rather encourage debate for furtherance of knowledge or helps the evolution of intellect to newer horizons!
UNLIKE OTHER RELIGIONS, THEY DON’T IMPOSE A BELIEF AND FORCE A “FAITH” ON SOMETHING ABSOLUTE! THERE US NO SPACE FIR ABSOLUTISM IN THESE CULTURES OR TRADITIONS. THEY RATHER ENCOURAGE AND GUIDE TO “EXPERIENCE” GOD! No other tradition or religion dare say this!!! In fact, they have every possible road to get to the “ULTIMATE TRUTH”!!! It is up to the individual to experience the ULTIMATE TRUTH in his own PERCEPTIONAL/EXPERIENTIAL CAPACITY!!! How Beautiful tradition with no EXCLUSIVITY at all. Yet they say that everybody reaches the same SINGULARITY or ULTIMATE GOD, “BRAHMAN”! And this is what the most advanced rational/scientific/Theoritical Quantum Physics too, thus far has postulated!!!
Here again you will find that SANATANA DHARMA steals the show when it says that Matter/Antimatter, Space, Time, Energy in all it’s state is but the MANIFESTATION of GOD/BRAHMAN/SINGULARITY and it’s CYCLICAL and ETERNAL. Science only deals with the known universe and theorises the unseen/imperceivable strata of the universe, but DHARMIC SEERS state that it can be “EXPERIENCED”.
And once that is EXPERIENCED every other thing in the universe becomes immaterial because one’s “CONSCIOUSNESS” becomes ‘ONE’ with the ‘ SINGULARITY or SUPER CONSCIOUSNESS or GOD ‘!!!
Can any other Concept beat this???
