God and His physical appearence when He come in Human form

A king in Srirangam was attracted to the beauty of the eyes of his wife. Sri Ramanuja showed the eyes of the Lord, which were radiating with divine knowledge and the king was attracted to the Lord leaving his wife. The physical appearance of the gross body is external personality, which is temporary. The qualities of the internal subtle body (along with the causal body) constitute the internal personality. When the wonderful God charges the human form by entering the human incarnation, generally He charges the internal subtle and causal bodies so that the qualities become divine and wonderful. The qualities of co-human beings may be good but not best and wonderful. Sometimes God charges the external gross body also according to the requirement as in the case of Krishna, which may become wonderfully beautiful or even radiating, giving divine visions and viswarupam is the highest.

Shirdi Saibaba was not externally beautiful, but His internal personality was divine, charged by God. God withdrew Himself even in the case of Krishna from the external gross body at the end. The internal body (subtle and causal) can be called as Brahma or Vishnu or Shiva according to the predominating quality of the subtle body. Various qualities arise due to various mixtures of these three qualities giving rise to various deities. In the Viswarupam, all these deities were shown with the central three qualities. Whenever the wonder (Maya) is mixed with the medium (Prakriti), the attraction becomes highest. Wonder (Maya) indicates the presence of God (Mayinamtu …the Gita).
