Soul does not become God in spite of hectic effort

The Advaita philosophers believe that this world is unreal for them also and that God alone is real. This is absolutely correct with respect to the angle of God. In the angle of the souls, the world is absolutely reality because the soul is always absolutely real for itself since the soul is part and parcel of the world. The soul cannot grasp God, who is beyond this world since God is the ultimate absolute reality. However, in the view of advaita philosopher, the soul itself is God and hence, the world is unreal from the angle of the soul also. In such case, what is the necessity for doing the hectic effort to become God? God may be immersed in the ignorance for a very short span of time to entertain Himself in the world. Such omnipotent God can regain His original nature in a fraction of second with single thought. The omnipotent God does not require hectic effort to realize Himself as God. The soul does not become God in spite of hectic effort. Does this mean that the strength of ignorance is more than the strength of the omnipotent God?

Therefore, the logical conclusion is that the soul is not the God and hence, there is no use of any extent of hectic effort [to become God]. In such case, the soul should not treat this world as unreal. But, the Advaita philosopher is rigid that the world is unreal for him. He wants to please the real God by sacrificing the unreal items of this unreal world. He wants to be benefitted by catching the grace of the real God through the sacrifice of this unreal world. Such sacrifice is not real. The sacrifice becomes real only if the soul sacrifices the real items of this real world for the sake of God.

The detachment of the Advaita philosopher is based on cheating business since unreal world is sacrificed to get the grace of real God by which he wants to become God. Shri Totapuri came to Paramahamsa shouting that the Divine Mother, who represents this world, must be neglected since the world is unreal. He suffered with severe stomach pain and failed even to commit suicide in Ganges. Then, he realized that Divine Mother, representing the world, is real for all the souls.

You cannot become Para Brahman (The Absolute God)

You cannot become Para Brahman (The Absolute God)

You can become Krishna or Jesus(Human Incarnation of God) but you cannot become Para Brahman because even Krishna or Jesus did not become Para Brahman. No alive wire is transformed in to current directly. To become Para Brahman is the impossible highest goal and this is a defect even in Krishna or Jesus. If you want to become greater than Krishna or Jesus, this means that your ambition is always endless. Therefore, Satguru reveals the truth only when the deservingness is completed. If you desire to become greater than Krishna or Jesus, then the best medicine for you is only to say that you can never become Krishna or Jesus. Therefore, to reveal this divine secret that you can become Krishna is always hidden by Me till now.

When the goal is impossible it is not a goal at all. Even in Krishna or Jesus God pervaded all over the body and soul of Krishna or Jesus and God entered Krishna or Jesus like the current in the alive wire. The word Ashritam in the verse means entry of God into human being and not becoming human being. It is clarified that entry of current into wire does not mean that current became the wire (Avyaktam Vyaktimapannam….Gita). From the angle of this point only, Mohammad said that God can never become the human being. Jesus, who was just before Mohammad, was misunderstood in this point only and was crucified. For all practical purposes the alive wire is current and similarly for all worship and service the human incarnation is God for devotees. There is no other way than this to serve and experience God directly without the medium (Nanyah Panthah….Veda).
