Gadhada First Section Vach. 7 Vachanamrut Rahasyarth Pradeepika Tika
Which Vachanamruts refer to sakar Akshar-brahm, and which Vachanamruts refer to the Akshar- brahm, which is the lustrous Brahm-jyoti of Shreejimaharaj and is beyond sakar Akshar-brahm, and is its cause (karan), sustenance (aadhar), all-pervading (vyapak), controller (niyanta), observer and soul (aatma)?
In GFS.7 T.1, Shreejimaharaj is stated to be residing in an anvay form in Akshar-brahm. Sakar Akshar-brahm is to be understood in this case. In GFS.21 T.7, it is said that the Akshar that is in the service of Purushottam, is his other form. In this context, Akshar refers to Akshardham, which is nirakar, i.e. it is the lustre of Shreejimaharaj, which pervades into Mul-akshar. It is this that enables Mul-akshar to create the universe. The Mul-akshar, who is the creator of the universe and is sakar, is another guise of nirakar Akshar. In GFS.33 Q.1, it is said that Shreejimaharaj acts as Akshar. In GFS.41, it is said that Shreejimaharaj exists omnisciently. In GFS.63 Q.3 T.3, Mul-akshar is called Akshardham and in GFS.64, Mul-akshar is called Akshar. In GFS.72 Q.2 T.3, Mul-akshar is called Akshar and in T.4, the Lord is called the Aatma of Akshar- brahm, and it is stated that He holds Akshar through His power and that He is superior to Akshar. This Akshar should be understood to have a form. In S.5 Q.2 T.3, Shreejimaharaj is said to exist in an anvay form within Mul-akshar. In K.8 T.1, “The nirgun form of the Lord is the Aatma of Akshar.” In K.10 Q.1 T.4, “The soul becomes like Akshar.” In L.4 Q.2 T.6, the Lord has said that nobody up to Akshar is capable of becoming like Him. In L.7 Q.3 T.8, Shreejimaharaj is said to be beyond Akshar. In L.10 Q.6 T.8, The Lord has called Himself the Aatma of Akshar. In L.13 Q.2, “Even Akshar cannot be called the Lord.” In L.15 Q.5, “Mul-akshar is called Akshar.” In L.17 Q.5 T.7, Shreejimaharaj has described Akshar as His own power. In L.18 T.2, “The sentiment of Akshar is perceived in Me.” In Am.4 T.1, He has called Himself the controller of Akshar and other Muktas. In Am.5 Q.1, “The Lord is capable of controlling Akshar, etc., and Muktas.” In Am.6 Q.2 T.3, “Par-brahm Purushottam, the Lord of Akshar etc., is Himself residing in this Satsang.” In GFS.51 and 63 Q.3 T.3 and in S.17 T.1, “Mul-akshar is called Akshardham.” In these Vachanamruts, Akshar-brahm should be understood as being sakar.
