80. Saguna ** is One who possesses such attributes, as perfect knowledge, perfect bliss, purity, infinite power

Everything in this universe is Saguna (positive) and Nirguna * (negative). For instance, the material objects are called Nirguna , because they are void of the properties and powers of conscious beings, as will and feelings. Whilst they are also Saguna (positive), because they possess their own material properties. The same is true of God. He is Saguna , when He is looked upon as possessed of His own attributes, as Omniscience, Omnipotence, but He is also Nirguna , being free from the properties of matter and soul.
