God can’t be imagined

It is fashionable to think of God in quirky ways. In April of 2001, Lisa Miller wrote in The Wall Street Journal: “the number of those (Americans) who say no standard definition ‘comes close’ to their notion of the deity has more than doubled in the past 20 years, according to market-research firm Roper Starch Worldwide Inc.” But in 1972 Srila Prabhupada told us, “Because it is science, so either in America or in India or in England, everyone will accept ‘Two plus two equal to four.’ That is science. Science is true everywhere. Not that ‘I can imagine my God according to my whims; you can imagine your God…’ That is going on. No, how you can imagine? There is no question of imagine.” (Excerpted from a lecture on Srimad Bhagavatam in Los Angeles.)
