One With God - an essential subject
Becoming one with God is a rather contested spiritual topic, especially in Hinduism, where various cults which preach differing philosophies have emerged through the years. The Mayavadi philosophy states that the ultimate goal of life is to merge into the energy of God (the Brahman effulgence), while proper studies and analyses of the Vedas show that the Lord has a personal form. Although merging into the Brahman effulgence means that one has crossed this material sky, it does not guarantee that one will remain there forever, because there is a place much higher than that in the spiritual world - the abode of the Supreme Personality of Godhead where one need never fear falling down into this material world again, and where oneness with God is derided as nonsense due to our constitutional positions as servants of Lord Krishna.
