Transcendence of LORD

Why the people with “limited intelligence” will go to Limited “forms” of GOD?

अव्यक्तं व्यक्तिमापन्नं मन्यन्ते मामबुध्दयः।
परं भावमजानन्तो ममाव्ययमनुत्तमम्।।7.24।।
The foolish people(abuddhayah) think that (manyante) avyaktam (the unmanifest) has become a vyaktim (the manifest). [They] do not know the higher nature (param bhavam) which is avyavam and anuttamam. (immutable and most excellent)

What is the reason for their ignorance?
नाहं प्रकाशः सर्वस्य योगमायासमावृतः।
मूढोऽयं नाभिजानाति लोको मामजमव्ययम्।।7.25।।
I am not visible to all as covered by the “yoga-maaya”
This deluded world does not know ME, unborn and immutable.

So, the “knowledge” of limited manifestation is always LIMITED.
Lord States:
वेदाहं समतीतानि वर्तमानानि चार्जुन।
भविष्याणि च भूतानि मां तु वेद न कश्चन।।7.26।।
I know the beings of past, present and future. But, No one knows ME.

Only the LORD “knows” everything as it happens, no limited manifestation will be able to know the LORD who is immutable and unlimited.

A scientist observing a “star” that is 290 million light years away can only say that star existed 290 million years back. He is not sure of the existence of that star as of today. If that star were to blast now, an “earthly” observer will come to know about it after 290 million years at the earliest. That is the limitation imposed on the “external” observation. So, all the “knowledge” that is gained by “external” senses is indirect knowledge subjected to the limitations of the object, observer and other illuminating factors.


The Lord’s knowledge is DIRECT and COMPLETE. He knows every small thought, word and action of all the beings (living and non-living) as they occur. His knowledge is not limited by the apparent division of time into past, present and future. Still he is not revealed by any thought, word or action.

That is his Transcendence. Avyaktam, avyavam and anuttamam!!
