Kariyani-8: The Sagun and Nirgun Forms of God

Nirupan

Swami had Vachanamrut Kariyani-8 (‘The Sagun-Nirgun Forms of God’) read and then said, “Nobody knows how to explain the form of God, since the talks are beyond logic and they do not fit into anybody’s system of logic. And previous āchāryas of philosophy have described the form of God, but nobody has been able to describe it in the way Maharaj has.” Then he said, “Read it again.” So, that Vachanamrut was read again and then Swami said, “Maharaj has described sagun and nirgun as two special divine powers of his own murti. And the original form that beholds both of these two forms is the manifest human form which is speaking before you i.e. Shriji Maharaj himself.” Then he said, “If ten scriptural scholars from Vadodara, ten scriptural scholars from Surat, ten scriptural scholars from Ahmedabad, ten scriptural scholars from Kashi and thus thousands of such scriptural scholars get together, would such an occasion to discuss these topics (of sagun and nirgun) arise?” Rupshankar replied, “No, Maharaj. Such an occasion would not be raised by the scriptural scholars.” Then Swami said, “That is how it is. But, in the world, the authority of the scriptural scholars counts for a lot. But, only Maharaj or a sadhu like Gopalanand Swami are able to describe the true form of God. But nobody else can. And this fact is superior than ten million meditations, since even Shukji, after emerging from meditation, described the manifest human form of God.”

[Swāmini Vāto: 3/67]

Yogiji Mahārāj said, “If one understands Vachanāmruts Kāriyāni 8 and Gadhadā II-17, then one can visualize Akshardhām with this very body. One should feel elated with one’s attainment, knowing that no one else in the brahmānd has attained. One should not be complacent in this regard; one must safeguard their attainment and love. While eating, drinking and in all activities, one should remain elated. Who have we attained? God and his Sant. Always remain elated in this manner.”

[Yogi Vāni: 1/18]
