Brahman-Narayana was conceived as the Absolute, the infinite IT IS, the primordial creative potency of the potential cosmos, the Universal Self existing static and potential throughout all eternity.  It was a distant idea of the all-encompassing Absolute but of an impersonal kind.  Was considered the divinity-energy principle that activates the Vedic pantheon.  It was thought to be creative energy, cosmic reaction; beyond all definition.  India was left helpless by the impersonal hypothesis of a Brahmin.  The Infinite One, IT IS; no personality attributes.  The Vedic oversoul of all creation.
