Brahman or Supreme Being is Omnipresent and Omnipotent

 
 

Brahman the Supreme Spirit is undivided whole and is beyond time, space and causation. Brahman is Consciousness and Bliss. This universe or Brahmand is the body of Brahman. There are four aspects of manifestation of Brahman-

1. Brahman

Brahman is Truth, Consciousness and Infinity. The universe comes out of Brahman, rests in It and merges in It. Just as the spider throws out the web from within itself and draws it in so also does Brahman with the universe. Just as trees and plants shoot up from the earth, so does the universe come out of it. But the universe (Brahmanda) does not manifest everything. The transcendent aspect of Brahman is without any relation to the world. This higher aspect of God is called Nirguna Brahman (or Brahman). Here Supreme Spirit is beyond time, space and causation. This transcendental aspect of God known as Brahman can be compared with the soul (Atman) in the body. It is without any characteristic.

2. Ishwar

The immanent aspect of Supreme Spirit is called Saguna Brahman or Ishwar. Here God is regarded as the Creator, the Sustainer, the Destroyer of the world and therefore, also an Omnipotent and Omniscient Being. He is the object of worship.

3. Hiranyagarbha

Hiranyagarbha is God in dreaming state and manifestation of the universe in subtle form.

4. Virat

Vaishvanar or Virat is God fully awake. This aspect of God is the totality of all gross objects,  the entire manifested world, including all individuals (jivas)

In other theistic religions of the world only immanent aspect of God is discussed and nothing is said about Nirguna Bramha. Thus this is another distinct feature of Hinduism.
