Only by knowi...

Can-We-Comprehend-God-in-His-Saguna-formed-State
We must remember that the Nirguna (formless state of God) is yet comprehensible, but not the Saguna (form) one! Saint Tulsidas writes in the Ram Charit Manas – "Nirguna roop sulabh ati saguna janne nahi koi" – that the formless state of God, which is the brilliant light, is easy to identify. There is no ambiguity in it at all. But when God descends...
