Is it Impossible to Visualize God

In this post, I have written about some very deep and profound verses, which are contained in the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, which describe that it is impossible for any person to visualize the real form of God or the Ever-Existent Being, Also given in the post are some pointers to overcome this and experience God.

“My Sakara Form/Forms [the form/forms by which I am visualized and worshiped by devotees] has no spiritual benefit, it is an illusion[Mayajaal] like the Mayajaal of Indra and the Gandhaarvas”

“The Sakara Sadhanas are mainly prescribed for those people whose minds have deceived them into thinking that I can be worshiped/perceived only through elaborate rituals and by following a specific pattern or method of worship”

“My real form cannot be perceived even by the opening of the Chakras or the awakening of the Kundalini Shakti nor through any Nada or Bindu[Sacred Sound or Celestial Radiance or Energy] nor is it contained in any Shakti”

“My real form is beyond any measure of time, space and energy and nothing can describe it or define it or attribute any qualities to it because it is attribute-less”

The Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, then goes on to state that the real form of Bhairava can only be experienced when the mind is free from all kinds of thoughts and is in an unmodified sate of Being. This means that the real state of Bhairava can be experienced by a mind, which is free from bias and preconceived ideas or notions about the real nature of God.

“Meditation on all of creation and imagining it to be an Mayajaal [Illusion] frees the mind from bias”

“Meditation on the self as being formless, measureless without any boundaries and attributes frees the mind and one becomes aware of the real nature of God”

The philosophy behind theअहं ब्रह्मास्मि- Aham Brahmasmi Mantra, meaning “I am Brahma” or “I am the Creator” is also most relevant for the advanced practitioners of spirituality striving to find the true nature of God and experience it themselves.

The Mantra is just a phrase and there is nothing sacred or holy about it, those who do not wish to Mediate upon the Mantra can imagine themselves to be formless, attribute-less, not limited by any boundaries or simply imagine oneself as being infinite and one with the Universe. This once again brings us back to the Advaita or Non-Dual Philosophy of Being.
