Who is God - Jagatguru

The most basic question that comes to everyone's mind is "Who is God", "Is there a God", if so, then "What does God look like?", "Is God a Human", "Is God Male or Female", after all "What is God?"

This has been the most intriguing question which has bewildered humankind for centuries. This question arises due to the fact that we humans are not able to explain the natural phenomenons that take place around us. We still can't explain the most basic concept of creation which is happening continually in almost every living thing we see. We can't even explain our existence. We take birth and die. No one knows why one takes birth at a certain point in time, and why one dies. We just accept it as a law of nature. These unexplained phenomenons make us believe in some "other" power due to which all the unexplained things are happening. So definitely there is some "Higher Power" which we call God.

If we look at the beauty and the intricacy of the living things around us, we realize that we cannot simulate even 1% of what exists. So this question is beyond the intellect of a "Human" to provide an answer for, but we realize that there is a bigger force around us who did all the creation, by whom everything is sustaining, and that higher force is called GOD.

Now the question arises as to "Who is that God". The fact is that only the "One" who created the creation can answer this question. In other words, the "God", "the higher force" due to which the creation is happening can give an answer to this cardinal question. He who owns it, created it, is controlling it, knows the answer to this question - "Who is God or What is God". We would only know if "He" tells us the answer "Himself". He has done so by uttering that sacred knowledge Himself.

The God Himself has given us the answer via Holy Texts which we call religious scriptures. Among these texts, the widely recognised ones are the Vedas, Bhagavad Gita which belong to Hinduism, The Bible of the Christians, Quran Sharif of the muslims, Shri Guru Granth Sahib of the Sikhs and many more. Apart from this, God Himself has appeared on this earth on various occcasions and revealed his secret via his speech (Bani / Vani). 

The religious scriptures have been available for centuries and therefore have been open to interpretation / misinterpretation. People have interpreted in diverse ways as per their intellect. As a result many God have had an existence, due to sheer ignorance of humans. This however was bound to happen because only the one who has written it, created it, can only explain it. Or someone who has been nominated by God can solve the mystery.

This is the reason it is said in most of these scriptures that we have to find a knower who knows it all. That knower will enlighten us. The speaker of Quran says in Surah Al Furqan 25:59 "So ask about Him (God), one well informed". Likewise in Shrimad Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4:34, the speaker of Gita asks Arjun to find a God Realised Saint who will impart the true knowledge (about God). 

Only a God realised Saint (Knower) can tell us about God, His form, His name, His abode and answer all other questions. Jagat Guru Rampal Ji Maharaj is that God Realised Saint (Tatvdarshi Saint) who has the true knowledge about God. He has proved from all the Holy Scriptures that the name of God is Kabir. Vedas, Gita, Bible, Quran Sharif and Shri Guru Granth Sahib are a testimony to the fact that the name of God is Kabir.

Moreover God Kabir Himself appeared in 1398 AD and gave us Kabir Speech (Kabir Vani). During that time God Kabir also met Guru Nanak Dev Ji and revealed him the Truth. Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji then mentioned about God Kabir in his speech (Bani) which is now recorded in Shri Guru Granth Sahib (Page 721 to be precise). God Kabir again appeared in 1727 AD and met Garib Das Ji who then eulogised the grandeur of God Kabir in his speech (Known as bani of Garib Das ji) which is bound as a Granth Sahib. Likewise God also met Dadu Ji and granted him the true knowledge about Himself. Dadu Ji then sang the glory of God Kabir in his speech.
