What is God? – Answers from Kena Upanishad

Brahman (God) is that from which all beings are born that by which they are sustained and that unto which they return.

That which is not perceived by the eyes as an object, as a color or a form, but because of which the eyes are able to see. That is Brahman.

That which is not seen, but because of which the eyes are able to see; that which cannot be described by words, but because of which our speech is able to describe other things; that which is not heard by the ears, but because of which our ears are able to hear; that is Brahman. (Kena Upanishad I: 4 – 7)
