– Yes, God, the Supreme, has to be both transcendent and immanent, since He cannot be exhausted by His creation, but also there is nothing that is not divine in its essence (God is in all hings). As from Meister Eckhart, “Before creation, God was not God” (transcendence), and “God is in the creatures, but above them”. (Transc.-Imman.). In the tradition of Advaita vedanta (advaita: ‘not two’) there is the distinction between God creator (saguna Brahman), Ishvara, and nirguna Brahman, this last without determinations, undefinable, attributeless and unknowable by the mind. Clearly, they cannot be separated, they are not two, but the former, though in “Himself” unmanifest, has a direct, personal relationship with all creatures. The personal God cannot not be sentient, for S/he is pure Love and unadulterated Happiness (or Bliss), participated in in various degrees by sentient creatures, but the Absolute (nirguna Brahman) or pure Consciousness, the ultimate Reality, is above human emotions and untouched by human actions and volitions, as He/It is above right and wrong and all polarities; He/It is described as ‘the ear of the ear, the eye of the eye’, etc., as a neutral witness (‘witness Consciousness’). ‘It’ is not, and cannot be, an object of worship, for ‘It’ is our real identity, the only Subject there is.
