The Holy Science
Swami Sri Yukteswar
Transliteration of Sanskrit
Brahma param |
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
"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."
