The true knowledge about God

You should not say that God is incapable of preaching the characteristics of God and that it shows only the ignorance about God. Most of the people are thinking God as imaginable item like awareness, all pervading energy, visible light, inert matter etc. Negating all these possibilities and establishing the true unimaginable nature of God itself is the perfect and complete knowledge of God. By realizing completely that God is unimaginable, you have attained the true knowledge of God. Nobody other than God can understand God (Brahamavit Brahmaiva….Veda).

Therefore, God is not ignorant Himself. The inability to understand God belongs to the limited scope of intelligence of human being and it is not due to incapable explanation of God. A blind man can never see any object, however much it may be explained. The defect lies with the blind man and not with the preacher. The intelligence of any human being cannot cross the spatial dimensions and can never imagine God, the generator of space, existing beyond space without spatial dimensions. The reason for not understanding God is also clearly explained by God. Therefore, God is the best preacher of the ultimate truth and the main purpose of human incarnation is only to preach the true spiritual knowledge, which alone can save any human being in the ultimate sense.

Absolute knowledge

Brahman wid(knowing to God) Brahman(brahmaiv) Bhavatih. The Knowledge of Godhead has been absolute knowledge that is 'Being Eternally' can be known and realized through "Nivikalpa Samadhi" but such kind of absolute divine knowledge cannot be expressed in true sense through the mouth because of its(mouth's) limitation as being the working agency in domain of senses(Maya). This divine knowledge is beyond the agency of Maya as well as mode of this agency as mouth etc. hence this knowledge cannot be expressed through the mind but only through the "Nivikalpa Samadhi".

Brahma Jnana

The knowledge of God is called ‘Brahma Jnana’. The first form of such knowledge is the recognition of God. You cannot recognize God if He is not experienced by you and He can be only experienced through the medium in which you are present. If you are satisfied only with a vision He can appear in many visions such as fish (Matsya Avatara). But if you want to talk with Him and clear your doubts, then He should be in the human form alone. Thus Brahma Jnana means the identification of the Lord who comes in your medium (human incarnation for human beings). Shankara has said that unless the mind is completely purified (Chitta Suddhi), one is not eligible for Brahma Jnana or Jnana Yoga. This means that unless the mind gets rid of the impurities, which are egoism and jealousy, one is not eligible to identify the Lord. The biggest problem in this Brahma Jnana comes only when the preacher Himself reveals that He is the Lord.
