Question: God the Unmanifest is Eternal. Is God's manifestation also eternal?Sri Chinmoy: God's Compassion-manifestation is not always eternal. At times He uses His Justice-Light. But His Illumination-manifestation is always eternal. In your case, I clearly see that God is playing the Game of His Illumination-manifestation.
