Object and Reflection

Bimb Pratibimba waad.
Object and Reflection theory explaining how divine God occupies material world.

In an attempt to explain how God occupies each and every particle and still be different from all those particles- with all his divine attributes intact- most common example that is given in scriptures is as follows.

There is the SUN. If you put mirror in front of it, you can see SUN in the mirror. The reflection of SUN cannot be existent without existence of SUN at the same time SUN is altogether different or separate from its reflection in the MIRROR.

Similarly this world depends on God for its existence.

    As a matter of curiosity, how would you use the analogy of object and reflection with respect to the 2 mirrors itself facing each other. Considering the mirror itself as an object, with no other object in between.

    Welcome ! Even in that case you will need some real object to throw light!

    Welcome ! Usually this analogy is given to explain the point that God occupies each and every particle of this world, yet he has a different appearance.
