|Difference between ‘Son of God’ and other human beings |
Yantraputraaviva srashtuh paramaatmanopi.
Translation: Like the machine and son of an engineer, the creation and son of God exist.
Explanation: All the human beings are part of the creation of God. A liberated soul is one of the human beings and when he is blessed by God, God enters in to him to make him the human incarnation of God on the earth. Such a blessed liberated soul is mentioned as the son of God. The son of God differs from all the other human beings and the rest of creation by having God in him. The entire creation including all the other human beings is also the product of God and the son of God is also the product of God. But the difference between the son of God and the rest of creation is the presence of God in the son of God and the absence of God in the rest of creation. A machine invented by the engineer is said to be his product. Similarly, the son of the engineer is also said to be the product of the same engineer. But the difference is that the blood of engineer exists in the son, where as, the blood of engineer is absent in the machine. Thus one has to clearly understand the meaning of the son of God.
