First, one has to realize what God supposed to be. Without knowing what God is in truth, the truth realization or God realization is impossible. God is not different
form Atman nor Atman is different
The God in truth is only Atman, the innermost Self. In
there is no duality, no differentiation. Only Atman exists.
The Vedas confirms God is Atman (spirit), the innermost Self.
Rig Veda: ~ The Atman (Soul or Spirit) is the cause; Atman is the support of all that exists in this universe. May
ye never turn away from the Atman the innermost self. May ye
never accept another God in place of the Atman nor worship other than the
Atman?" (10:48, 5)
Rig-Veda 1-164-46 and Y.V 32-1 clearly mention that God is “One”.
Rig Veda declares God is ‘ONE’ and God is Atman, then why believe and worship in place of
Brihad Upanishad: ~ “If you think there is another entity, whether man or God there is no truth."
In Yajurveda – chapter- 32
:~ It has
been said that God Supreme or Supreme Spirit has no ‘Pratima’ (idol) or
material shape. God cannot be seen directly by anyone. God pervades all beings
and all directions. Thus, Idolatry does
not find any support from the Vedas.
Brihadaranyaka Upanishad: ~ Brahman (God) is the form of the Athma, and it is indeed
Sage Sri, Sankara: ~"That which permeates all, which nothing transcends and which, like the universal space around us, fills everything completely from within and without, that Supreme non-dual Brahman (God)."
The Bhagavad Gita: ~ Brahmano hi
pratisthaham ~ Brahman (God) is considered the all-pervading consciousness (Spirit) ,
which is the basis of all the animate and inanimate entities and material. (14.27).
When Bhagavad Gita says, God is considered the all-pervading consciousness (Spirit) which is the basis of all the animate and inanimate entities and material then nothing has to be accepted other than consciousness a God.
Lord Krishna Says Ch ~V: ~ “Those who know me in truth.". The last two words (
usually ignored by pundits, but they make all the difference between the
ordinary concept of God and the truth about God.
The dualistic worship of "God” is only for the ignorant populace. The God in truth is only Atman, the innermost Self. In
there is no dualities, no differentiation. Only Atman exists.
Thus, truth realization is self-realization. The self-realization is God realization. God -realization is real worship.
