I heard the following statement several times

Those who realize parabrahman becomes parabrahman

Let us assume someone becomes parabrahman (Jivan Muktha) after realizing parabrahman.

Then according to the slokha 6 of chapter 15 of Geetha, a person who achieves moksha will never return to this material world.

That abode of Mine is not illumined by the sun or moon, nor by electricity. One who reaches it never returns to this material world.

So, a Jivan Muktha (parabrahman) should not take birth in this human world (at least as a human).

But, according to the slokha 8 in chapter 4 of Geetha, parabrahman will take birth again and again as a (saguna, Sakara brahman) human to establish/preserve dharma.

In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I advent Myself millennium after millennium.

So, a Jivan Mmuktha takes birth again and again for establishing righteousness.

How to understand this? Is it false that a person who realizes parabrahman becomes parabrahman? Else, which among the three arguments are false?

  • Also see What does the term "Adhikarika Purusha" mean? "A person commissioned by God to do good to the world; though liberated in life, he is born again and again with full memory of his previous lives, till he finishes that duty of his, when he merges for all times in Brahman"... – YDS Jul 11 '20 at 12:18
  • A ordinary person doesn't take rebirth after liberation but Adhikarika takes rebirths.."which among the three arguments are false?"-- all are true!! :) – YDS Jul 11 '20 at 12:22
  • @YDS But how does the difference exists after becoming parabrahman? – hanugm Jul 11 '20 at 12:36

    It is not necessary for Jivanmuktas to be born again but if they wish then they can. See this answer: hinduism.stackexchange.com/a/28585/4732 @hanugm – Rickross Jul 11 '20 at 13:22
