The perception of 'God' is so widely different for each one of us; for an atheist it is a subject to rebel, for a theist it may be a sanctioning authority from heaven fulfilling all their needs. The perception of God is based on how one is conditioned.
Let's look at the genesis of 'God' in our life. God was introduced to me when I was very young by showing an idol or image and my parents said "if you do mischief God will poke your eyes". This way the so called 'God fearing journey started'!!
Somehow our seniors ensured we become 'God fearing people' and not 'God loving people'! The next item of our conditioning is 'Sin & virtue'- we were taught by seniors 'when you harm someone you earn sin and do good you earn browny point from God!! This gave the God a book keeping responsibility and he has to appoint "Chitragupta' to do this chore!!
When we needed something like passing the exam we were asked to sign a contract with God to sanction in exchange of our hair or 100 coconut !! In summary it looks like we have an 'Unclear' understanding of God.
I was curious to know what our Masters or enlightened people are describing the 'God principle'. Whatever I could access from our Vedic literatures I was surprised to note all our understanding about God learned from all sources are wrong. To give a glimpse:
# No where in the Upanishad God is described with a image or form. He is formless.
# All that is there in the Universe are manifestation of God in material & energy form including all human beings.
# We are divine in human form and deluded due to Maya (will discuss later)
# Reincarnation is the result of our incomplete desire (Vasana)
# All human can realise God through transcending mind and attain Nirvana through meditation.
Will discuss more later.
