Guidance needed on unimaginable God

Shri Rajesh B. Naik asked: Guidance needed

I am not able to understand the following. Any entity having even very very small spatial dimensions can be imaginable. If the boundary is imaginable, you are still continuing in the imaginable phase of universe only and the boundary should not be reached. If the boundary has no spatial dimensions, it should be the generator of the space. The reason is that space cannot exist in its generator before its generation. This point again mutually proves that the boundary is the generator of space. By Rajesh B.Naik

Swami replied:- This point is very very subtle and any hasty proceeding will spoil the actual subtle concept. You have to examine this point very carefully and with lot of patience so that you will never miss the actual subtle point. This universe is imaginable and hence, its boundary must be also imaginable. When you are travelling in a ship in the sea, if the water of the sea is visible (imaginable world), the boundary of the sea, which is also water must be visible only. The boundary of the sea does not mean mere edge of the sea water only, but also, refers the adjacent boundary of the (unimaginable God) earth also. As per the rule, if you have reached the boundary of the sea, you must reach the boundary of earth also. This means that if you have reached the boundary of this imaginable space or world, you must have reached the boundary of unimaginable God also. But, actually, you can never reach the boundary of unimaginable God since God is beyond space being the generator of space (if space or spatial dimensions existed in God, it means space existed even before its generation in God and this is impossible contradiction). If you are not able to reach the boundary of unimaginable God, naturally, it means that you must be unable to reach even the visible (imaginable) boundary of visible-imaginable world also. This results in the inevitable impossibility to reach the imaginable boundary of the imaginable world. As you are running in the space to touch the imaginable boundary of imaginable world, it is also expanding before you reach it so that you can neither touch the imaginable boundary of the world nor touch the unimaginable boundary of God. This results in the constant expansion of world or space. The world or space may also be already so huge (in which case the expansion of universe is not necessary) that even the angels or energetic beings having the fastest speed of energy can’t reach the boundary of world. The Veda says that even angels can’t touch the unimaginable God, which means that they can’t touch the imaginable and visible boundary of the imaginable world also (Nainat devaa aapnuvan puurvamarshat). The core and boundary of the imaginable world and the boundary and core of unimaginable God (assuming that both boundary and core of God exist) are known to the unimaginable God Himself and this means clearly that the infinite world or space doesn’t mean that it is not having the boundary in reality. Infinite means not only the boundary-less item, but also, an item having the boundary unknowable and unknown to us.
