Maya can be analyzed but not God

The Maya is generated from the Lord like electricity from a generator. By analysing the structure of electricity, you cannot get any information about the structure of the generator. Creation is a modification of Maya. By analysing the creation, you can catch Maya because the phase before modification can be easily achieved by analysing the phase after modification. Electricity is modified into light. By analysing the light, you may get information about electricity. Therefore you can touch Maya through the analysis of the creation. Maya is called as Para Shakti or awareness, which creates, maintains and destroys the creation. But when you analyse the Maya, its source called Brahman [more precisely called as Parabrahman] cannot be touched (Brahma Puchcham—Veda, Mayadhyakshena—Gita).
Meaning of end of creation

All this creation is withdrawn into Maya (Creation is a modification of Maya ) and Maya is withdrawn into the Lord. This is like the movie on the screen, which is withdrawn into the film and the film is withdrawn and hidden in the box. The movie or the film is not destroyed. Both are exhibited again whenever the Lord wants entertainment (Visrijami Punahpunah—Gita). But once upon a time even before the production of the film, neither the film nor the movie existed. This state is compared to the pure monism of Brahman (Ekaki…, Ekameva—Veda; Mattah Parataram—Gita). If the Lord wishes, He can destroy the film and show you that original state. But He need not prove it to you and for that He need not destroy the film like a fool.

This hidden state [unmanifest] of the film, is called ‘Avyaktam’ (Dhata Yatha purvam—Veda, Avyaktadini—Gita). Therefore the Maya (film) is hidden (Avyaktam) for sometime and is exhibited (Vyaktam; manifest) for sometime. The Lord is permanently Avyakta (hidden) because He is always unimaginable. Thus the Avyakta (hidden state) is temporary when it refers to Maya and is permanent when it refers to the Lord. This hidden Lord exhibits Himself in energetic forms for the sake of the souls present in the upper worlds. The same Lord exhibits Himself to the human beings on this earth in the form of the human body (Manushim Tanu Mashritam—Gita). This is the God in Flesh of Christianity.

Gita says that God is unimaginable & comes in human form

Veda says that God is the first preacher and He is called as Kashyapa because He is the pashyaka. Since, the meaning of pashyaka is that He who sees the subtle meaning of the scripture (Kashyapah pashyako bhavati). This first preacher preached the spiritual knowledge regarding the information about absolute God called as Brahmajnana to Sun in the beginning as said in Gita (Imam vivasvate). The Sun preached this to his first son, Shanaishchara, who is called as Jnanakaraka or the initiator of knowledge. This knowledge was passed on to his brother called Yama. From Yama the knowledge was achieved by Nachaketa, who brought it to the earth and was propagated to the human beings.

These five preachers are called as the five fires (Panchaagni). The preacher or Guru is compared to the fire since the knowledge itself is the fire that burns the ignorance to ash as said in Gita (Jnanagnih…). The first preacher is Krishna and He is also called as Datta. Datta means, the unimaginable God given to the world in the imaginable medium, which is the human form as said in Gita. Gita says that God is unimaginable (Mamtuvedana…) and that God comes in human form (Manusheemtanu…). Krishna is the human form charged by the unimaginable God. All the human incarnations(Krishna, Jesus, Mohammad, Bhudha, Shri Dattaswam etc) are the human forms charged by unimaginable God.
