Sri Chinmoy: Yes. He was both with form and formless before he created the universe. But first He was formless, then He became something with form. Then He created humanity. First He was formless; then He adopted form for His own sake. When He became the Form, a tiny portion of Him entered into each individual. He is infinite, but an atom of Him, let us say, entered into humanity in each human being. That tiny portion is the connecting link between the finite and the Infinite.
Each of us has a connection with the Form of the Supreme. But only when we have become consciously and totally one with the Form of the Supreme, can we go to the formless One. We cannot go to the formless Supreme without passing through the Supreme that has form. It is impossible to go to the Supreme as disembodied Consciousness. The Supreme with form has to be seen, felt and realised first, before we think of the Supreme without form.
