Hebrew Letters / Maharal / Midrash / Names of G - d

Why not pronounce Yud Heh Vav Heh (Shem HaMeforash) ?, Part 2

Actually I wasn’t planning another article on the subject, as I have already given many facts in Part 1. However, I found a few more details I would like to share with you:
The Maharal and Midrash Rabbah state:
Moshe wanted to comprehend the Name of G – d (Yud – Heh – Vav – Heh) but G – d explained that no human is able to grasp His Name, as the Name is constantly changing in accordance with the act He is doing at that particular moment. Thus, G – d’s Name cannot be grasped from within time and space.
A name always describes the essence of something or someone but this doesn’t apply to G – d because He is unlimited and beyond definition.
The Name Yud – Heh – Vav – Heh cannot be humanly comprehended in full, and therefore it is pronounced differently (A – do – nai) than it is written.
Please note that despite different Names, G – d always remains the same and ONE !
