26. Awareness is God's medium; not God


सङ्कल्पकृदुपाधि नचित्तदत्ता नाग्निः।२६।
saṅkalpakṛdupādhi nacittadattā nāgniḥ|26|

When God is said to have will, the medium is awareness. This does not mean that God is awareness. If that were so, God is also said to be the Burner of the entire creation in the end. This does not mean that God is fire.

Explanation:

In the Veda it is said that God wished to create this world (Sa ikshata...). People thought that due to the will, God must be awareness because awareness alone can wish. It is also said that God burns the entire creation in the end as per the Brahma Sutra (Attaa charaachara…). This does not mean that God is the inert fire!
