Section/Chapter

Ghadhada First Section - Vachanamrut 64

Shreejimaharaj states that He is the aatma of both the drashta, i.e. His lustre, and of the drashya in which this lustre is prevalent, i.e. murtiman Akshar. He remains distinct from both and is eternally murtiman. He mercifully appears upon this Earth in a human form for the salvation of souls. In this manner, a person who recognises Him to be divinely murtiman, and has upasana and devotion towards Him, acquires similar qualities to Him and attains infinite prowess. Someone who believes Him to be nirakar and worships Him, becomes absorbed into Brahm-sushupti, from which he never emerges. This issue can only be understood from someone who has attained a status in His Murti.
