In the previous episode, we had witnessed some important characteristics of the “Pralaya Kaala” and how the world would wind up itself when this time comes. We’ve also seen that this “Pralaya Kaala” happens only at the end of Bhagawan Brahma’s life span of around 100 “Satya Lokha years”. This obviously is nowhere close to what we are currently. However, we’ve witnessed the various instances that would take place in this process of “Pralaya Kaala”. We’ve seen how there would be torrential and extreme intense rains, which would go to the extent of dissolving the entire sand, soil, rocks, etc. of the earth surface. In that way, the entire earth surface would get “washed away” in the water, and simultaneously there would be extreme wind and fire, which would ravage the earth from the other side. Thus, this would totally subject the world to a complete destruction and ultimately the entire world would be sucked in by Bhagawan Vishnu, who is also the creator. Thus, once this process happens, everything starts afresh again, and it starts from a seed, to a plant, to an insect, to an animal and finally to a human. This starts again when Bhagawan Brahma would commence his next 100 “Satya Lokha years” of lifespan. Thus, it is a cycle that keeps repeating on and on.
But amidst all of this, there is a single small, miniscule individual called “Me” or “I” who is reluctant to acknowledge all of this and still wants to be part of this vicious cycle over and over again, without surrendering myself to Bhagawan, to request Him to pull me out of this cycle! This is the greatest irony that people like us are amidst! Rather than requesting Bhagawan to pull us out of this, what do we do? We communicate to Bhagawan through our actions thus, Oh! You know what? I want to experience all the different births and deaths that are to happen to me in this world, for multiple number of years. Who are you to try and liberate me from all of this? I should experience all the “pleasures” of this “Maya”! So what if there are sufferings? I can still brush them aside and go behind worldly pleasures, which would enable me to go through multiple phases of this cycle again and again!” If such is our mindset today, then who can save us, including Bhagawan? Thus, to answer our earlier question – Can everybody get “Moksha” in this world and if everyone gets to that level, what would happen to this world? We can understand from this very accord that unless and until we have “specimens” like this dwelling in this world, Bhagawan has to keep continuing to spin the cycle over and over again. If people are ready to go through the cycle without the desire of liberation, what can Bhagawan do? Bhagawan has given us the “instruction manual” called Vedas, Puraanas, Ithihasas, etc. to make us understand that the ultimate purpose of this human birth is to realize Bhagawan and attain Moksha. Whereas, if we’re not reading through the instruction manuals properly and if we make a mess out of our lives, how will Bhagawan be responsible for the mess that we’re creating for ourselves?
For instance, if we’re buying any product in the market, every product would come with a “user manual”. If we’re not reading the user manual properly and operate the product, who would be responsible if we get injured, or if the product gets worn out? Can the company be responsible? No, isn’t it? Similarly here also, if we create all the mess that we’re creating, and if we say that Bhagawan is not taking care of the creation properly, how fair is this to squarely put the blame on Bhagawan for what we do? This is where, we need to have the realization that all the scriptural texts under our “Sanaatana Dharma” are the “user manuals” for us given by Bhagawan to channelize our path towards attaining “Moksha”. We’ve to read them and understand them from this point of view, and all other things would fall in place.
Thus, we had discussed at length, the concept of Time (Kaala), “Pralaya Kaala”, and simultaneously Bhagawan Varaaha’s incarnation to destroy the Raakshasa called Hiranyaksha, to save Mother Earth from his wrath and arrogance. As Bhagawan Varaaha incarnates thus, with His huge form and with the strength of a thousand elephants put together, all the “Maharishis” worship Him with great devotion. This is the first time that Bhagawan Vishnu is incarnating in this world, to re-establish “Dharma”. Of course, during the Krishna – Avatar much later, Bhagawan Krishna explains the purpose behind all His incarnations, isn’t it? So here also, Bhagawan Vishnu re-establishes the lost “Dharma” and destroys the disastrous Hiranyaksha to make sure that the “Adharma” is rooted out completely.
So for today, let us understand and realize these important points, and we shall wait till the next episode to witness the continuation further. Stay tuned! 🙂
