82. We can never practically attain God's view

तस्यदृगुच्यते न गम्यते राजमहिषीवत्।८२।
tasyadṛgucyate na gamyate rājamahiṣīvat|82|

God’s view is only explained by us and not practically attained, similar to the aspect of the king and the queen.


Our view regarding us and the rest of world cannot exist in the absolute plane. We can just imagine the position of the absolute plane but we cannot have practical existence in the absolute plane. When we talk about the absolute plane, it does not mean that we have actually reached the absolute plane. We are only imagining the position of absolute plane, which is practically impossible for us to attain. We can say that world is unreal in God’s view. This does not mean that our view practically becomes God’s view, and it does not mean that the world becomes unreal for us. You can say that the king can shout at the queen, but it does not mean that you can shout at the queen.
