Saguna Brahman

From Thelemapedia


This article is a stub. You can help Thelemapedia by expanding it (

Saguna Brahma, in Hindu philosophy, is God or Supreme Consciousness with gunas (qualities or attributes). This in contrast with Nirguna Brahman, which is the Supreme Consciousness beyond the gunas. The universe or creation comes about by the imbalance of the three gunas (sattva, rajas and tamas) within the cosmic mind of Brahman. Nirguna Brahman is beyond mind but Saguna Brahman can said to be floating within the infinite Nirguna Brahma like an iceberg in an endless ocean of water.

Saguna Brahman is sometimes equated with Ishvara, in turn often equated with a certain personal manifestation of God in human form (such as Shiva or Krishna.
