Nature of the Absolute (cont.)

God-dess’ body and its owner are not two different principles like the difference between the body and soul of living entities in the physical world. God-dess’ body and its owner both consist of consciousness and bliss. The same eternal spiritual principle manifests God-dess’ names, attributes, activities, and abodes. God-dess is not different internally or externally.

God-dess possesses inconceivable power to manifest different forms without losing his-her oneness. God-dess remains one and indivisible yet expands innumerable forms and manifests in infinite ways to persons according to their different tastes, aptitudes, and modes of realization.

God-dess manifests on three clear levels, as Undifferentiated Oneness, Cosmic Consciousness, and personal God-dess according to the three paths of approach–knowledge, meditation, and devotion. Of these three forms, each succeeding form supersedes and philosophically speaking, includes the preceding. God-dess, the highest manifestation, supersedes and includes Undifferentiated Oneness and Cosmic Consciousness.

We identify God-dess with the supreme persons, Radha-Krishna, the source of all incarnations, the ultimate ground of being, in whom infinite grandeur, infinite powers, and infinite modes of divine bliss exist. All scriptures, either explicitly or implicitly, speak of God-dess as the Ultimate Reality. God-dess constitutes the only reality that exists without change before, during, and after the end of creation.
