Title: Concept of God in Hinduism
Post by: shibli on August 06, 2009, 06:38:43 PM
1.   Yajurveda
The following verses from the Yajurveda echo a similar concept of God:
i. "na tasya pratima asti
"There is no image of Him."
[Yajurveda 32:3]5
ii.   "shudhama poapvidham"
"He is bodyless and pure."
[Yajurveda 40:8]6
iii.   "Andhatama pravishanti ye asambhuti mupaste"
"They enter darkness, those who worship the natural elements" (Air, Water, Fire, etc.). "They sink deeper in darkness, those who worship sambhuti."[Yajurveda 40:9]7
Sambhuti means created things, for example table, chair, idol, etc.
iv.   The Yajurveda contains the following prayer:
"Lead us to the good path and remove the sin that makes us stray and wander."
[Yajurveda 40:16]8
