Jewish people are uncompromising when it comes to the idea that there is only one god, with no half-god/half-man manifestations. This concept was radical when it was conceived and remains a point of contention to this day.

About Dr. David Neiman:

His life's work concerned the intricate relations between Christianity, Islam, and Judaism throughout history and in modern times.

In light of our current world situation, Dr. Neiman's work is not only extremely relevant but also remarkably prescient. More than anything, Dr. Neiman was a keen observer of the human condition. His words convey our shared history with clarity, humor, and humanity.

Dr. Neiman was the first Jewish scholar appointed to teach Religion at Boston College, one of America's leading Catholic Universities. He served as Professor in the Department of Theology for a quarter of a century. While there he was also invited to teach at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.

Concept of God in Hinduism -- Revolutionary talk One God 6 months ago   38:10

In today's morning satsang from Bali Paramahamsa Nithyananda gave a historic definition of advaitha. He revealed that it is not oneness or monism. Hindus do not believe in one god; they believe in infinite gods each one of which is infinitely powerful with no need for one all powerful godhead. He encouraged us to complete with others and experience Nithyanandam, the experiential expression of infinity.

TRANSCRIPTIONS:-
I welcome all of you with my love and blessings.

Today, 8th day! COMPLETION WITH OTHERS! Not just other human-beings in our life, but with everything! You will talk to the trees, ocean, hill, pets, friends, relatives. Actually, all of them are....some are trees in your life, some are ocean in your life, some are pets in your life. There is no difference actually inside. So, inside how you feel with the pet as you complete with others and life today. Actually, yesterday’s Vaak Siddhi initiation is specially to complete with others and life today. I programmed in such a way that all of you will complete today with everyone in your life with the power of your words, shift the listening of the listener. And even if you want to complete with me, today finish it. I am always complete, so don’t worry. So I am not going to sit and listening to you. May be, sit in front of my photograph and finish if you have any incompletions; complete with that also.

Complete with everything, everyone; when I say me, I mean all that I represent, everything unknown in your life. I am totality of unknown your life. So whatever you call life, god, nature, if you are not able to pinpoint anybody as a reason for your incompletion, put that on me. That’s all. See, I am the vyakta of avyakta for all of you. I am the manifest of un-manifest for all of you. So naturally all the unknown incompletions dump it on me and complete with it. Be complete with it. I am almost like a large size dustbin for all of you to dump all your incompletion – unknown. Actually master is expected to play that job. And its my responsibility to complete all your unknown incompletions. Like if you are depressed, moody for no reason and you are not able to find any reason, then naturally on who the incompletion falls? Me only!

So, all the unknown incompletions, incompletions which you are not able to pinpoint, Avyaktha, put all that also and complete. Try your best to complete with as many persons and as many things as possible. Completion with others will make you experience Shuddha Advaitha, the pure oneness, or non-dual experience. Even “oneness” is not the right word; it looks like “ekathwa” No, oneness is not the right word. Non-dualness, Advaitha, means non-dual, you will experience infinite under your ability to grasp. Please listen, today I am defining “non-duality”. Non-duality is not oneness. Non-duality means: “Infinite, but able to grasp”. You will expand to grasp the infinite; that is Advaitha, non-duality. It is the intellectual criminals like Max Mueller and Max Muellerian translation of our Vedas to abuse our Vedas, that non-duality has been translated as oneness, which is not right. They tried to translate by using the word “monism”. No! Advaitha is neither monism nor oneness. Advaitha means “non-dual”. “A” + “Dvaitha”, see these two, “no two”, does not mean “one”. “Neither one nor two”. Uncountable! Infinite becomes your experience!

Understand, today what you are listening is going to be one of my breakthrough contributions to the whole Hindu philosophy, Sanatana Dharma, because the whole modern-day neo Hindus are suffering without understanding this word “non-dualism”. Tons of questions! ‘If non-dualism means, then how so many gods can be there?’

If I have to translate the word “Advaitha” with the clear meaning and interpretation of the practical experience, this is the experiential interpretation, expression, experiential expression of Advaitha: “Advaitha does not mean oneness, Advaitha does not mean monism, it means there is no two, there is no one, infinite; but infinite, everything is infinitely powerful”. That is why the Sanatana Hindu Dharma allows all of us to be gods and not fight with each other. All of us are gods and we don’t need to fight with each other.....

END OF SATSANG:-
I don’t want to name this as a philosophy; I only want to call this as an experiential expression of infinity. Nithyanandam is the experiential expression of infinity –with the revelation of this great experiential expression, from this context, I bless you all, do Completion with others and yourself; you will experience this experience! Today, from this context, all of you sit. And I commit with you all, I will mirror my neuron activities into your brain!
