Unimaginable God Vs Energy
Parabrahman Vs Brahman

Hiranyagarbha called as karyabrahman, is the first produced infinite cosmic energy in which the un-imaginable God is hidden. The cosmic energy is generated from the un-imaginable God, who is called as Karanabrahman or the root source of everything. Hiranyagarbha means the cosmic energy in which the gold is hidden. The word gold indicates the most valuable un-imaginable God. Garbha means hidden since God is not visible to imagination. Veda says that Hiranyagarbha is first born cosmic energy, which is the controller of the world (Hiranyagarbhah samavartataagre...). The cosmic energy generates the matter and the various forms of the world. Even the visible energy denoted by the word 'agni' is generated from the infinite cosmic energy. This infinite cosmic energy is the source, maintainer and dissolver of the entire world and can be called as Brahman. The original un-imaginable God is beyond this cosmic energy and should be called as Parabrahman.

This infinite cosmic energy is nothing but the infinite space or vacuum, which is only the most invisible energy. This infinite cosmic energy acts as the medium or body of the un-imaginable God. The father of the heaven is a limited energetic form in which also the same un-imaginable God exists. Since the un-imaginable God is beyond spatial dimensions, He can be present simultaneously in any no: of forms. Such limited energetic form can be called as Brahma, Narayana and Shiva. The embedded God in Hiranyagarbha is one and the same existing in the limited energetic form. The difference is only that the body of Hiranyagarbha is infinite whereas the body of the father of heaven is limited. This unlimited cosmic energy containing un-imaginable God is called as Jehovah/ Allah or karyabrahman.

Indication of un-imaginable God through materialized human body

Whenever you want to indicate the un-imaginable God, your finger cannot be directly put towards such un-imaginable God because He is un-imaginable. The un-imaginable God or karanabrahman is always indicated through the infinite cosmic energy acting as the medium or body of such un-imaginable God. For more convenience, you can even select the father of heaven with limited energetic body since the un-imaginable God existing in it can be also indicated by such limited energetic form. You will have the climax of convenience, if you indicate the un-imaginable God through the materialized human body of human incarnation since the same un-imaginable God exists in it also. Thus, the real point is that you need some medium, which may be energy or matter and which may be un-limited or limited to point out the un-imaginable God.

The same un-imaginable God exists in all these media and you need not differentiate one medium from the other as far as the aspect of indication of un-imaginable God by medium is concerned. Generally, the un-limited or limited energetic form is chosen to indicate the un-imaginable God because human beings have the natural repulsion towards a co-human form due to their ego and jealousy. The un-limited energetic medium and the limited energetic medium are called as Vishwaroopa and Narayana respectively. Therefore, Shankara, Ramanuja and Madhva have taken the un-limited cosmic energy in which the un-imaginable God is hidden to refer the meaning of the word 'God'. They have also considered the limited energetic form of un-imaginable God representing the un-limited energetic form of God. Ramanuja and Madhva called such limited energetic form of un-imaginable God as Narayana whereas Shankara used the word Eshwara for the same father of heaven. The un-limited energetic medium was called as Brahman by all the three preachers, which is the Karyabrahman or Hiranyagarbha indicating the Parabrahman or un-imaginable God.
