Query: I am confused... when human being attains moksha salvation he stays there for
eternity or just till the dissolution of cosmos. Is this restarting of cosmic journey after dissolution of
the cosmos... pralaya in hinduism for those souls who haven't achieved moksha as yet or for all the
For all practical purposes eternity means until we reach the end... and
the end of the Cosmos occurs when dissolution of the Cosmos takes place! Does it mean that eternity and the
time of dissolution of the Cosmos mean the same... yes, for all practical purposes it means the
The entire history of mankind is not more than 10,000 years old and the
dissolution of the Cosmos may occur some billions or trillions of years in the future! Such a long period of
time for all practical purposes is termed as eternity!
Vaikuntha... the kingdom of God exists until the dissolution of the
Cosmos occurs! The moment the whole Cosmos... devoid of all impurities dross reduces to the size of half a
thumb... it explodes with a big bang... and starts a new life cycle... beginning of a new cosmos!
With passage of time souls atmans manifest the human form. And this human
form as and when it reaches the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)...
gains access to the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism).
With every new cosmos... the cycle of life repeats by itself from the
very beginning! There is nothing like transition from one Cosmos to the next. At the time of dissolution of
the Cosmos in whatever stage every atman soul may be... all reach the stage of enlightenment and finally
salvation moksha. In other words all reach the kingdom of God... Vaikuntha in Hinduism!
As long as the present Cosmos contains impurities... the complete
dissolution of the Cosmos can never occur! For the dissolution of the Cosmos to occur in its entirety...
every soul atman reaching its cosmic end is a necessity! Only then the cluster of all purified souls atmans
reaches its original pure pristine form... termed as God Almighty.
The moment this happens... God Almighty... the cluster of all purified
souls atmans in the Cosmos explodes with a big bang resulting in a new cosmos... a new beginning of life! In
every cosmic life cycle... every soul atman starts its cosmic journey from the first manifestation as an
amoeba... until the last as an enlightened being!
In a cosmic journey of billions and trillions of years... what value of
human sojourn of 70 to 80 years! One need not think much about it. The goal of life in the human form is to
gain enlightenment and salvation. Why question entity of the Cosmos!
The form of a human being is but a path for the soul atman within! It is
our soul atman that manifests the human form to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within!
Whatever has been ordained by God Almighty... every single living being simply needs following ones goal of
life. As a human being we do not have much choice.
Jainism interprets working of the Cosmos in a different manner.
Mahavira... the 24 Tirthankara of Jainism stated that at the time of dissolution of the Cosmos... in whatever
stage of manifestation a soul atman is... the same continues in the next Cosmos... in the next journey of
life! It simply cannot be.
The concept put forward by Mahavira... the 24 preceptor of Jainism is
flawed! Unless all souls' atmans reached the end of life... the whole Cosmos cannot reduce to the size of
half a thumb. If that does not happen... the dissolution of the Cosmos will simply not occur!
For the complete dissolution of the Cosmos... every soul atman needs
reaching Vaikuntha... the abode of God! Only then God Almighty regains its original pure pristine form... the
size of half a thumb! This aspect of life has been made explicitly clear in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of
Hinduism... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in Mahabharata.
Lord Krishna came about thousand years earlier to Mahavira. The doctrine
of Bhagavad Gita is absolutely flawless. Bhagavad Gita contains everything worth knowing on the spiritual
path! The knower of Bhagavad Gita finally becomes the knower of all. One practically gains
At no stage of life one can contradict even a single statement contained
in the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. Bhagavad Gita is the essence of life following which one reaches the
end of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!
