Chapter I

Veda             The Gospel


Sutra 1


Transliteration of Sanskrit sloka


Nityam purnamanadhyanantam Brahma param |

Thadevaikamevadwaitam sat  | 1|


Parabrahma (Spirit or God) is everlasting, complete, without beginning or end. It is one, indivisible Being.

The Eternal Father, God, Swami Parambrahma, is the only Real Substance, Sat and is all in all in the universe.


Why God is not comprehensible.  Man possesses eternal faith and believes intuitively in the existence of a Substance, of which the objects of sense - sound, touch, sight, taste, and smell, the component parts of this visible world - are but properties. As man identifies himself with his material body, composed of the aforesaid properties, he is able to comprehend by these imperfect organs these properties only, and not the Substance to which these properties belong. The Eternal Father, God, the only Substance in the universe, is therefore not comprehensible by man of this material world, unless he becomes divine by lifting his self above this creation of Darkness or Maya. See Hebrews 11:1 and John 8:28.


"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

"Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the son of man, then shall ye know that I am he."
