I do not know anyone other than the all-renouncing Shankara (i.e. Tyagaraja), who is of the nature of all gods beginning with Lord Guruguha.
He is devoid of the mental modes such as attachment. He delights in His own experience, revels in bliss, and manifests as the five elements, viz. earth, air, fire, water, ether.
He transcends the three Gunas, i.e. Satva, Rajas, and Tamas. He who is of the form of pure consciousness, and produces the differences between pairs of opposites, Sukha, Duhkha etc., is himself of the nature of highest Advaita and bliss. He is beyond the triad of the knower, the knowledge and the knowing. He whose three quarters of form transcends the earth, He is unique. The mantra Tatvamasi is analyzed by Him. He is the harmonious union of individual and collective. His nature is of ultimate liberation, and shines as that which transcends the concept of Tatvamasi.
