Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
He, who worships a fragment of the entire (God), also finally attains the entire—'te prapnuvanti mameva' (Gita 12/4), `taco mam tattvato jnatva visate tadanantaram' (18/55). Therefore those who want to worship the attributeless (Absolute), may worship Brahma, but they should not slight God endowed with attributes. It is very dangerous (harmful) for the worshipper of attributeless God to slight, to blame and to refute saguna (attributes) viz., it is an obstacle for attaining perfection. The reason is that 'apara prakrti' belongs to God, therefore to blame it, means to blame God. By refuting the attributes, he accepts the existence of attributes, which is an obstacle, because without accepting their existence, what will be refuted? Therefore if a striver, without blaming and slighting the other strivers, practise spiritual discipline promptly, at last (finally) all strivers, become one because the Divinity is one If a striver remains indifferent to `saguna', he can attain salvation, but the differences in opinions cannot be wiped out. But if he pays heed to 'saguna', all differences come to an end and a striver attains the entire form of God.
