sacred scriptures of Hindus, particularly the Rudradhyaya of Krishna
Yajurveda, Chandogya, Svethsvatara Upanishads and several Puranas
have tried to bring out the elusive splendour of His myriad forms
and inimitable glory, but in vain. Siva, that Ultimate Reality is
beyond the range or words and thought.
language describes His power and glory, would it not tantamount to
His own creation scoring victory over Him ? Does it not pose a
challenge to His Omnipotence ? Son never outgrows father in age. The
created never surpasses its unsurpassable Creator. The unexcelled
excellences of that Supreme Reality should remain as such only to
keep its offspring propetually gaping and gazing with infinite awe
and admiration as a mark of expression of devotion to that extent of
ultimate dissolution and total absorption ,into that greatest Him.
How could the yearning of Jivatma to merge into that Paramatma
better expressed? remains for mankind other than that Sayujyamukti
absorption of its Atmajyoti into that Paranjyoti ? That alone
should be the life's highest and surest craving of mankind,
declares the wisdom of our Maharshis.
