Album cover for A Merging to the Boundless: Void of Voyce by Stargazer
(Was used without credit for over a year)
(Was used in a state where it was almost impossible to find the original artist)
(People only know this now because the original poster of that image came out and informed others)

"Elon Musk said that the need to credit artists is destroying the medium, the problem is that Elon Musk was a stupid fucking liar."

This page in question has one or more images that aren't credited properly. Whether this be because the artist can't be found or the one who added the image was lazy, this needs to be fixed.

I'm not sure if I can help you with this Black. I was raised a Buddhist, not a Hindu. Despite the similarity between the two philosophical beliefs, they are not entirely the same thing. As far as I know, Brahman is this transcendent metaphysical force, the Ultimate Reality, and the single binding unity behind diversity in all that exists the universe.
Matt Wright.

Brahman connotes the highest Universal Principle, the Ultimate Reality in the universe. It is the material, efficient, formal and final cause of all that exists.

Overview

It is the pervasive, infinite, eternal truth and bliss which does not change, yet is the cause of all changes. Brahman as a metaphysical concept refers to the single binding unity behind diversity in all that exists in the universe.

Brahman the Absolute God of Hindus, is a very mysterious Being. In Hinduism He occupies the highest place, as the creator and enjoyer of all creation. He is the Light and Delight of the Universe, the Ruler and the Lord, without a beginning and without an end, indestructible, indescribable, blissfully immersed in Himself and all by Himself. The concept of Brahman and His relationship with individual souls and Nature and His manifestations are the subject of many schools of Hindu philosophy. Some schools believe that He is both the efficient and material cause of creation.

Some believe that He is only an efficient cause and that Prakriti is the material cause. There is also considerable speculation about the relationship between Brahman and the individual souls. Some believe that both are the same and some believe that they are different. Presented below are a few articles on Brahmanwhich may help you gain a proper understanding of this Highest and Absolute God of Hinduism, the Ruler of All.

Despite having some similarities with the Abrahamic God, he should not be considered as such. The Abrahamic God does not emanate the Creation as Brahman, but creates out of nothing (ex nihilo). God is also not one with creation, despite being omnipresent, God is totally separate from His creation, being more distinct from Creation than day and night, the Biblical God brings things from non-existence into existence, not from Himself.

Appearance

Strictly speaking everything in the universe is a manifestation of Brahman only. Innumerable are his forms and manifestation, but He is One and Alone, without a beginning and without an end. He pervades everything, is hidden in everything and enveloped by all that is here and elsewhere. In the Upanishads we come across many verses on Brahman extolling his universal dimensions and infinity. If the Absolute is eternal and timeless and is not subject to any causative principle or the dimensions of time and space, how could there be any gap between Him and His creation?

Personality

It is difficult to describe His personality, however, the Brahman personality itself is impersonal, without desire, without will, words, actions or thought, similar to the Ein Sof concept of Kabbalah. Trying to understand the consciousness of Brahman is the same as trying to understand the consciousness of the Universe, he may have one and he may not have one either. It can be said that, in a sense, he is personal, as he is linked to the human psyche, which inevitably makes him a conscious being. He can assume a consciousness similar to human consciousness, being able to communicate and converse with a person as a personal being.

Powers and Abilities

  • Nigh-Omnipotence: Brahman holds the ultimate power, but has some form of limitation/weakness that limits his power and prevents him from being truly omnipotent. He can be absolute in specific fields and/or they may simply be able to achieve an almost infinite number of effects in all fields with their almost omnipotent abilities. Being a primordial, Brahman is infinitely superior to all angels, archons, including the almighty True Archangels, he comes to be above the Aeons themselves, entities so powerful that they transcend the entire physical universe, including the terrible archon, Yaldabaoth.
  • Omnipresence: Brahman is everywhere present at the same time, Brahman is more of an incorporeal being as an invisible force of being that is literally everywhere yet to be seen, felt or heard, unless he wish to interact, positively or negatively affecting any and all things in the universe by his presence and will.
  • Panentheistic Deity Physiology: Brahman is the all-encompassing Creator who contains all creation within him. He is a panentheistic being of which everything exists within a single beingm, in this case, he. He is the ineffable and incomprehensible principle which orders and sustains all of creation as its simplest and most fundamental ontological ground, completely unbound by the basic principles and dichotomies inherent to the physical universe while encompassing all of them as an entity of pure wholeness possessing all characteristics and attributes, being the property of all "existence" itself and beyond it.
  • 10th Dimension Physiology: Brahman is absolutely and literally everything and each of the infinite possibilities and probabilities, each infinite reality, timeline, universe or dimension and everything within each one, that is, absolutely everything at once, without exceptions and limitations, all incorporated in a single being and infinitely more. Brahman is essentially the tenth dimension: a unique and timeless all.
  • Autopotence: Brahman is all-powerful over himself, including his existence. It can make its existence ineffable and defying all laws and logics, also rewriting itself on absolutely every level, including structure, origin, conclusion and many more. With absolute control over himself, he can essentially do anything as long as it stems from his own existence, such as granting himself all powers/abilities, becoming one with all, attaining true perfection, etc.

History

Myths and Legends

Brahman is conceptualized as the creative principle which lies realized in the whole world. Brahman is a key concept found in the Vedas, and it is extensively discussed in the early Upanishads. The Vedas conceptualize Brahman as the Cosmic Principle. It has been variously described as Sat-cit-ānanda (truth-consciousness-bliss) as well as having a form and as the unchanging, permanent, highest reality.

Brahman is discussed in Hindu texts with the concept of Ātman, personal, impersonal or Para Brahman, or in various combinations of these qualities. Brahman is also different from Ātman in each being. Brahman as well is identical to the Ātman, is everywhere and inside each living being, and there is connected spiritual oneness in all existence.
