Parāparavastu is Ens Supremum, i.e., the one ever-existing, supreme or highest divine being and is considered:

  1. an immaterial being that has no form, can be compared with nothing, has no beginning or end, but is the beginning of all things, from which everything has emanated, into which everything will flow back, on which the deities depend, and which is in everything that is and who is the one god.
  2. a material being which has introduced itself as a visible being in order to create visible things, to be recognized by visible creatures.
  3. as such a being which in itself has separated the male energy from the female energy but has become in its external form man and woman.
