81. Our real world is unreal for God


सन्नस्तस्यासज्जगत्।८१।
sannastasyāsajjagat|81|

The world is real for us human beings, where as the same world is unreal for God.

Explanation:

God is the cause and the world is the effect. We human beings are also part of the world. God is in the absolute plane and the world is in the relative plane. We and the rest of the world stand in the relative plane alone. Therefore, we and the rest of the world are true for each other. God should not be referred to in the relative plane. If we go to the absolute plane, we along with the rest of the world become unreal for God. The view of God is confined to the absolute plane and cannot be referred to in our view. Similarly, our view is confined to the relative plane and should not be referred to in the view of God.
