God of Veda

Recent days, I searched on the internet regarding the myth of vedas. I found a number of authors who copy paste the work of some other person claim there are more than one God in Vedas. They quote the names of Indra, Agni, Varuna etc found in Veda, and try to prove polytheism of Veda. Some also point that God of Veda is not omnipresent because fire is not every where, nor rain(showing Indra) etc, Vedic God is not omnipotent because everything cant be done with fire. 

These words show their ignorance regarding God of Vedas. In my one of earlier blogs, I have proved that Vedas are the only books that say about oneness of God, other books that claim the oneness of God failed when the question raised, "Why a human name is to be associated while praying God of those books to get his bliss ?" and "Will one get bliss, if he prays the God and only the God with out accepting any human being his son or messenger ?"

So far as my own view is concerned, my prayer to the God is a purely private matter between me and God, no other entity is entitled to interfere between me and God. So there should be no specific way of praying him, nor there should any specific words to pray him. That is why I don't belong to any religion. Vedas accept this concept of praying God, that is why I find Vedas more valid then others.

In real sense, only God of the Vedas is omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, perfect and one to be praised and prayed. 

Nashadiya Sukta of Rig Veda, says about the creation. And Purusha Sukta is a continuation of the same. If we read both the suktas in totality, we will reach that the entire universe is the God of the Vedas. Fire, Indra, Vishnu, Varuna, Sun, the stars, the planets all are part of his gigantic body. We all are of his body too. That is how the omnipresent word is most suitable for the God of Vedas. Other texts failed to present exact description of why and how God is omnipresent. Some texts say God is in the Heaven. If God is in heaven, how can he be omnipresent ? Because heaven is not hell.

When we say we are alive, we say about our soul. All the texts that claim to be divine accept the soul being the life of a body. Vedas say it to be our Atman. As the Atma is the life of my body, Paramatman is the life of the entire universe. So the entire universe is the body of God and the paramatman is its life. Atma and Paramatma are made of similar matters. As Paramatma is the only source of life, it is omnipotent. By the word omnipotent in Vedas, it mean nothing can happen without him. what ever happens, happens because of a force or power. That force or power is nothing but the God. That is why the word omnipotent is best suitable for the God of the Vedas. Other texts failed to prove this concept. Some texts say, God can do every thing, that is why he is omnipotent. But they have no answer when question arises "As he can do everything, can he create another God ? Can he kill himself ?"

When we say perfect, we mean without err, without change. Vedas say about three eternal entities. 1. God 2. Atma and 3. Matters. They were always there and will be there always. God has made laws that Govern the matters and Atma. No one can change the Law of nature. God has made the laws in so perfect manner that made possible the science. Vedas claim there can be no miracles. It means what ever happens will happen in similar circumstances always. It is what science says regarding the maters. The God of Veda is unchanged in his principles and the law made by him is also unchanged. That is why the word Perfect and omniscient are perfect for the Vedic God. Where as these words are not perfect for God of other texts, because those texts accepted that the God of these texts made error in the past, they change their mind, they challenge law of nature, they do miracles to prove them to be God. One book says God had a fight with one human, and the God was defeated by the human. One book says God killed all living creatures once, then he felt sorry for what he did, and promised he will never do that again. Later he said he will again destroy the creation on dooms day. So God of that book is not perfect nor omniscient.
So if by the word God we mean one and the only one, without a second, that who is omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, perfect, he is no other than the God described in Vedas.
