3. The Greatest Creator is the Neutral
The Greatest Creator is unique and exclusive, and the Greatest Creator is also neutral.
There are men and women and male and female animals and plants, so what of The Greatest Creator?
We can never say The Greatest Creator is male or female because if that were so, then there would have to be a Greatest Creator of the opposite gender to be the opposite, which would dampen the uniqueness and exclusivity of the Greatest Creator.
Nor can we understand the Greatest Creator by using the “bipolarity” in the principle of the unity of opposites. That is to say, we can not define the Greatest Creator as true or false, good or evil, or beautiful or ugly, because if we define the Greatest Creator as good, then there would have to be an evil and opposite Greatest Creator as the opposite of the good Greatest Creator, which would again dampen the uniqueness and exclusivity of the Greatest Creator.
Everything, including animals, humans, Buddha, and God, has its respective nature. Then, of what nature is the Greatest Creator? The Greatest Creator is without nature, which means the Greatest Creator does not have the nature of matter, animals, humans, Buddha, or Gods. It is not at all correct to classify the Greatest Creator into any section of LIFE.
If we were to say that a certain person has the nature of an animal, then we would be degrading him or her. To say that the Buddha has the nature of humans is to degrade the Buddha. Such would be the case to say that a God has the nature of Buddha or that the Greatest Creator has the nature of matter, animals, humans, Buddha, or a God. As a result, The Greatest Creator has no nature. The Greatest Creator is neutral.
It is imperative we discuss the Kirtan and the Bhakti movement because is involves the Greatest Creator.
Kirtan and Kirtan responsory are originated from the traditional Indian wisdom literatures, which have been inherited by some masters with spiritual nature. The most outstanding leader of the Kirtan and the Bhakti movement is Srila Prabhupada. The Movement shines with wisdom, focusing on the spiritual features, instead of the material or flesh attributes of human beings. Many of its contents are valuable and worthy of being adopted.
But we have to know who is Kirtan. According to the many lecture sheets of Srila Prabhupada, we know that Kirtan is the Supreme God of the Universe, which is acceptable. However, he also said that Kirtan was sole and only and the “source of all sources”. Who can be sole and only? Who can be the “source of all sources”? Only The Greatest Creator is. So we can conclude that Kirtan is The Greatest Creator.
Then, is Kirtan really The Greatest Creator?
In his lecture sheet ‘Definition of the God’ in the Kirtan responsory , Srila Prabhupada said, “When Kirtan showed up on the Earth, he had 16,108 wives, each of whom lived in the marble palaces decorated with jewels and equipped with furniture made of ivory and gold, demonstrating extreme splendid.”
So is this The Greatest Creator?
Of course not.
Being neutral, The Greatest Creator is neither male nor female. How could The Greatest Creator have 16,108 wives? Why don’t we say Kirtan have 16,108 husbands? Evidently, it is the idea of male superiority. Moreover,The Greatest Creator was much too libidinous if it really had so many wives. Are we extolling or desecrating The Greatest Creator when we generate so many wives for it with the mentality and the lust of flesh of human beings?
The wives of Kirtan lived in the “marble palaces decorated with jewels and equipped with furniture made of ivory and gold, demonstrating extreme splendid”. In fact, the laymen have imposed their own wills on The Greatest Creator. Would The Greatest Creator like marbles, jewels, ivory and gold simply because these things are precious in the eyes of the common?
In a word, Kirtan is not The Greatest Creator.
Kirtan responsory is the goddess of love and is to reach the harmonious integrating spiritual nature and god. Nevertheless, we have to be cautious about the Kirtan , who is not The Greatest of Creator but is labeled so, thus the Kirtan responsory is extremely dangerous.
