It is often said "Daivam Manusha Rupena". It means that God incarnates in the form of human beings. Divinity is not a separate entity. It is immanent in humanity. God incarnates as a human to remind this and redeem mankind. That is why human birth is considered to be highly sacred. The human form is a conglomeration of five elements, namely earth, water, fire, air and ether. The Divine Power which makes the five elements function is called Atma, the Supreme Self. Atma does not have any form. It transcends all names and forms. Hence, do not be under the mistaken notion that God is confined to a specific form. Always remember, God is Love and Love is God!
