There is no possibility of knowing the unknowable nature of God

 

141. Anuhyatvasya jnaanamevaanubhavah parikshaaphalayoh.

 

Translation: The unimaginable nature is experienced in the stage of detection as well as the final result and the experience is the very knowledge itself.

 

Explanation: When the unimaginable nature of God is experienced through imaginable medium, it means that you have attained the knowledge of unimaginable nature of God. This does not mean that the unimaginable nature of God becomes imaginable. Knowledge of unimaginable nature means that the existence of unimaginable nature is detected or known. Without the knowledge there cannot be experience. The experience of unimaginable nature means only the knowledge of existence of unimaginable nature of God and in this point there is no possibility of the unimaginable nature becoming imaginable. Through the knowledge of existence of unimaginable nature of God, you have concluded the existence of unimaginable God in a specific medium. Here either in the stage of detection or in the stage of result of detection, there is no possibility of knowing the unknowable nature of God. You can only know the existence of the unknowable God and this does not mean that you can know the unknowable nature of God.
