Are We Limiting God?


Question

If we say God with a form is superior to a formless God, aren’t we limiting God? A form has boundaries. But when we think of God, we think Him to be unlimited and infinite. That is not possible for a God with form. Please explain this matter.

Answer

H.D. Goswami Profile Picture

Material form is limiting but Krishna’s eternal forms are unlimited both in time and space. A material form is limited to a particular space and time, but Krishna pervades all spaces and all times. We find even materially that forming sound in language unlimitedly increases its power to communicate.
