It is comical to claim to be advaitins and go against what acharyas have
written about eternality of Ishwara.
Well, it has been said n' no. of items here in this list itself that if
you are talking about bhA rUpa, manOmayi, mAyA shabAlita apara brahma
(i.e. Ishwara) then it is only vyAvahArika satya no point in attributing
eternality to this kArya brahma. Shankara is quite explicit in his
assertion that Ishwara with his guNa-s like sarvajnatva, sarvashaktitva
etc. is only vyAvahArika satya which is avidyAkruta. On the other hand,
if you are giving nirguNa nirAkAra, nirvishesha, niravayava brahman an
another name 'Ishwara' then yes, it is the one and only reality without
second and obviously he is shAshvata. Here too shankara is quite clear on
his stand and clearly explains what constitutes saguNa / apara brahman
and what exactly is kevala nirguNa jneya para brahman.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
