(Veda says that God is not in the statue. Gita also says that those who worship the inert five elements will be born as inert elements).

 

 

Veda says that God does not exist in the statue (Natasya Pratimaa). The statue is only the representative model of God and God does not exist in the inert statue. Similarly, the inert energy like light etc. Gita also says that those who worship the inert matter and energy (inert five elements) are born as inert objects in the world (Bhutejya yaanti…). Hence, the medium into which God enters is not inert but is a living being which is mainly characterized by awareness. The body of the living being is inert but a living being is mainly characterized by life, mind etc., which is awareness.
