It’s a very subtle subject and requires real meditative attention. ... As the principles on which you are based are different from what you are, in the same way, the principle of Brahma is different from the Brahma itself, but is the Brahma and contain(ed) in the Brahma. But the Brahma itself is sustained by the principle. In dimension, you may say that Brahma is wider, larger and, you can call it, even deeper. But the subtler is the principle.
This principle exists with Brahma at the beginning of the universe, of creation. At the very beginning it exists, but as it is an eternal play of creation, destruction, sustenance,
So the principle which is the Divine Power, the aura of that, or the thing that is sustained is the complete Brahma and that Brahma has got three powers, namely, one of existence, second of creation, third of sustenance. The principle is the pulsating power of the Brahma. And it is represented as Om. When we say Om, is used also in the Christian prayer as Amen, is the same as Om, there’s no difference. When we say Om, actually the action of this principle

That is the principle of holiness, that is the principle of chastity within us, that is the principle by which we preserve ourselves, by which we respect ourselves. That principle has been incarnated on this earth, as I’ve told you, He’s created as Ganesha but He incarnated as Jesus Christ. He’s the Brahma, He’s detached and that’s why He could be resurrected. No other incarnation could be resurrected; He was not born, it was a conception, desire. And that’s why He was resurrected; you all perhaps do not know. ...
This is the principle of Brahma which is detached. The principle of Brahma is detached, that acts and takes away the interest, the interest goes away, the attention goes away.
