225. Two components in a single phase


सुषुप्तिजाग्रद्दशाद्वयनित्यचित् तस्य परस्य तु जाग्रत्यपि सुषुप्तिर्वा तदेकार्चने।२२५।
suṣuptijāgraddaśādvayanityacit tasya parasya tu jāgratyapi suṣuptirvā tadekārcane|225|

In the human incarnation, God is always with awareness in deep sleep as well as in the two states of waking and dream. The liberated soul will be in deep sleep even in the waking state while God alone is worshipped.

Explanation:

The human incarnation is a two component system in a single phase. The two components are God and the selected liberated soul. The single phase is the external gross body. Both God and the liberated soul exist in this gross body simultaneously. Sometimes, only God exists and the liberated soul is converted into inert energy as in deep sleep. In such a situation, God alone exists, pervading all over the gross body. The liberated soul, being inert energy, gets mixed with the remaining inert energy of the gross body. In the inert gross body, inert energy already exists and the liberated soul is just distributed in this inert energy. The same thing happens during the deep sleep of any human being. When God pervades all over the gross body [1], the supernatural awareness of God still exists and hence the human incarnation remains in the waking state; not in deep sleep. When the human incarnation goes into deep sleep, God, withdrawn into the heart, still exists with His super natural awareness.  Now in this state, the devotees directly worship God in the human incarnation. The human incarnation is in deep sleep externally due to the liberated soul being in the deep sleep. But God exists internally with His supernatural awareness. Observers think that the human incarnation is in deep sleep but in this state, only the liberated soul is in deep sleep and not God. However, in this state, even though God exists with awareness, the human incarnation does not appear to be in the waking state because God is withdrawn into the heart. But, when the human incarnation is in the waking state, there may be two possibilities. In the first possibility, the liberated soul is in deep sleep and God pervades all over the gross body with His supernatural awareness for the sake of the worship by devotees. Now the human incarnation exists in the waking state only because God is pervading all over the gross body with His supernatural awareness. In this state, when devotees worship Him, they worship God directly, since the liberated soul is converted into inert energy and is in deep sleep. The second possibility in the waking state is that the human incarnation is in waking state where both God and the liberated soul, simultaneously exist with their awareness. In this state, when devotees worship the human incarnation, both God and the liberated soul are simultaneously worshiped. Thus, according to the context of the requirement, the state is modified.


[1] God pervades over the gross body of the liberated soul and the soul has gone into deep sleep. The incarnation remains awake due to the supernatural awareness of God; not due to the soul’s natural awareness.
