God is beyond thought and inconceivable.
So long as the mind exists,
its urges survive and he is not seen.
He is known only after the perfectly restrained mind is itself dissolved.
Lord Krishn sings in Bhagavad Gita:
“The man who remembers God who is omniscient,
without beginning and end,
dwelling in the Soul that rules all beings,
the most subtle of the subtle, unmanifest, provider to all,
beyond thought, imbued with the light of consciousness,
and quite beyond ignorance….,”
“With unwavering concentration,
with his life-breath firmly centered between his brows
the strength of his yog,
such a man attains
the effulgent Supreme Being.”
Lord Krishn has clarified that one will doubtless realize Him if,
with his/her mind and intellect dedicated to Him,
he/she always wages war.
It is the worshiper’s contemplation of Him;
now he speaks of the contemplation of God.
So the instrument of meditation
some accomplished Soul who is imbued
the awareness of reality.
The worshiper who always meditates on God
with a steady mind realizes his magnificence
when his mind is dissolved
by the strength of his yog-by the strength gained from undertaking
the ordained action-which enables him to center his breath
between the two brows
there is neither inner agitation nor the advent of any will
from an external source.
In brief, the realization comes in the state
in which all properties,
sattwa, rajas and tamas, are perfectly quiet;
the vision of mind remains ready on the self
it is achieved by the worshiper
who always keeps it in mind
yog is the appointed way of realization.
This way is yog.
Lord Krishn has told Arjun,
“Always remember me.”
As we have seen,
this is done by resting firmly on the precepts of yog.
One who achieves this knows the magnificence of God
becomes one with him,
his memory is never obliterated from his mind.
At this point the question
how God is perceived at the time of departing
from the body
