“Many ask if I …

“Many ask if I am a Shaivite. Well the answer is no. If I was a Shaivite, I would limit Brahman to the forms of Shiva alone, which I do not. I see Brahman as Shiva in that it is auspicious. I am not a Vaishnavite, as I don’t limit Brahman to the four-armed Narayana either, I see Brahman as Vishnu as in all-pervading. I also also not a Shakta, as I don’t limit Brahman to the Shakti alone, although there is the Parashakti aspect. Yet, as I don’t limit Brahman to forms, I also don’t limit Brahman to a few names alone, as all names can be used to address the Brahman which is Sanatana (Eternal), Ayonija (Without birth), Amrita (Immortal), Para (Transcendental), Nirakara (Formless) and Nirguna (Attributeless). Brahman is Shuddha parachaitanya (Pure transcendental consciousness) alone of which, being so, from a human state we can see as Asat or non-being.”
— Ved Kovid, Durgadas
