Creation is unreal only to God not to soul

Creation is unreal only to God not to soul
The items of this creation are created just for play by God


The items of this creation are created just for play by God and hence it is proper to say that these are unreal to Him. If the world is also true like God, what is the necessity of salvation from truth (world)? Salvation is always desired from unreal to attain real (Asatomaa… Veda). Hence, it is proper to say that creation is unreal and God is real. But, this concept of unreal world-real God is limited to God only. The human being is a part of this unreal world and hence it is also unreal. Unreal must be real to unreal. Hence, unreal world is real to the unreal human being (soul). This is also proper for a petty human being.

If you say that God created real (product) from real (cause), it is not very great to suit to the highest status of God. If you say that this real world (to you) is created from unreal (to you), it indicates the highest status of God by causing surprise as in the case of unrevealed magic. Creation of real from unreal (Asatkaaryavaada) is stated by the Veda (Asadvaa… tatovaisat…). You shouldn’t say that Asat (unreal) means hidden Sat (real). It means that I have brought out an article hidden and exposed to you saying that I have created it! This is petty magic and not great miracle. Miracle suits to the highest state of God and not magic. If God brought out a really non-existing article (Asat) to expose it as the existing article (Sat), it is a real miracle suitable to the highest status of God unlike magic.

Some scholars plead for exposure of real (Sat) from real (Sat) and this is creation of real (world) from real (God) termed as Satkaaryaavaada. This is also correct because the source of the unimaginable power (Maya) to create real from unreal is the real God. Here, the real world (to you) is the product and the root cause is the real God and not the intermediate maya that creates real from unreal Maya. Maya is unimaginable power, which is real. It creates real product from unreal cause. Here, Maya or unreal or Upadana is the direct material cause for the real world like mud for pot and Maya or real or Nimitta is the designer cause like potmaker. The word Maya stands for two different items. When it stands for the meaning of the wonder, it is real and not different from unimaginable God. If it stands for the meaning of non-existence, it is unreal standing as the direct material cause for the world. If the world is taken as the product of real Maya or God, it is Satkaaryavaada (real produced from real). If the world is taken as the product of unreal Maya, it is Asatkaaryavaada (real produced from unreal).

In the first case (real God or real Maya generating real world), you must note one point, which is that real God means absolute reality and real world means relative reality. The reality of cause and effect in this case is not in one and the same phase and this case is also stated in the Veda (sadeva somya…). Creation of real from real (both reals must be equal) is not great to suit to the status of God. Scholars prefer this Satkaaryaavaada than the above Asatkaaryaavaada because the worldly logic doesn’t agree the creation of real from unreal since even in the magic the hidden real is shown as creation of real from unreal and this hidden real is impressed on your mind as unreal! But, My friends are forgetting the main point that the worldly logic does not apply to the unimaginable power (Miracle) of God. Therefore, creation of world is an inexplicable miracle (Maya) and not explicable magic (Indrajaalam). Of course, you can take unrevealed magic (appearing as miracle) as a simile to miracle. If you take God (absolute real) as the root cause and say that the real (relatively real) world is produced from God, Satkaaryavaada becomes correct provided you know the difference between absolute reality of God and relative reality of the world. At the same time, Asatkaaryavaada is also correct because the direct cause is unreal (relatively also unreal) from which the real (relatively real) world was produced. Hence, the Veda mentioned both options, which don’t contradict each other if you note above mentioned differences.

The items of the world are unreal with reference to real God. When the real God merges with an unreal item (human being) of unreal creation, such unreal item also becomes real. A charcoal piece merged with fire becomes fire to burn your hand, even though charcoal itself can’t burn anything. Real is very powerful and unreal is very weak. The body of an ordinary human being can’t withstand the swallowed molten lead and also can’t pass through the bolted doors. The reason is that the unreal lead and unreal door are real to the unreal body. But, when the unreal human body is merged with real God, it becomes real to withstand unreal molten lead, to pass through unreal bolted doors and even to lift the huge unreal Govardhana hill! This clearly means that the devotees worshipping the human incarnation are directly worshipping the unimaginable God without any technological trick! This shows the omnipotence of God to make any impossible to become possible, if it is proper to do so!
