Man inclines to use his mental faculties of thought and introspection to formulate theories about God. Bhagat Namdev ji asks, “How could I make You (GOD) an object of thought?” However, man continues to claim intellectual power to gain Knowledge or Wisdom of God while man’s physical existence in Natural World depends upon Sense Perceptions that are not true. For example, man needs visual experience of Sunrise and Sunset without concern for Sun’s true or real motion in Milky Way Galaxy. Man is able to think, contemplate, and reflect upon realities of World for his physical existence is defended by lack of awareness of true or real nature of World, a very fast spinning object. Man exists in physical World for he is blind, ignorant, or unaware of realities of World.
You can fool all the people some of the time:
A person who claims that he had seen God and proceeds to instruct the ignorant is not anywhere near God. Man’s statements about knowing or seeing God need verification. I cannot support unverified statement using another unverified hypothesis. Man cannot know God using his wisdom, knowledge, or through any kind of learning experience like meditation or mental introspection. As Bhagat Namdev ji mentions, man perceives God by admitting his Spiritual Blindness.
Verification of true ideas:
Man cannot claim intellectual superiority as basis for knowing God. I appreciate man’s interest in formulating theories of God. But, I have to know the theory that is used to verify any given idea. Bhagat Namdev ji repudiates Hindu beliefs about God. It will not help me to know about Hindu ignorance. It will be useful to me if I know his Wisdom. He claimed seeing God. Indians in the past have not questioned or verified his claim. Bhagat Namdev ji was resentful of people’s lack of knowledge. In the past, people have not doubted his Wisdom. What is that he has seen?
Spiritual Blindness of people about God has been expressed by almost all Bhagats, but Bhagat Naam Dev Ji has been most forceful on the subject.
