सर्वयोनिषु कौन्तेय मूर्तयः संभवन्ति याः ।
तासां ब्रह्म महद्योनिरहं बीजप्रदः पिता ॥१४-४॥
In bhagavad gita chapter 14 verse 4 Lord Krishna confirms to Arjuna that manifestation was part of cosmic life. In absence of reincarnation, rebirth… life simply could not move in cosmic system. In all 1.1 million manifestations in human form by our soul atman, the consciousness within… mother earth was the cosmic womb and God Almighty… the sower of seed! This independent seed was termed soul atman, the consciousness within.
If God Almighty was the father and mother earth… our mother, then we could only exist as a soul atman, the consciousness within and never the manifest physical human form! Human beings who do not believe in concept of reincarnation, rebirth were ignorant in matters spiritual. We were definitely a spirit… a soul atman, the consciousness within that manifested human form to work out its karma… remove dross impurities within!
As per bhagavad gita chapter 14 verse 4 the human form was just a Murti (an idol) that facilitated evolution of soul atman within. In absence of human form… no soul atman, the consciousness within could reach logical cosmic end of life… 8.4 millionth manifestation, last in cosmic life cycle! Reaching 8.4 millionth manifestation announced us as a soul atman gaining absolute purity forever.
Through bhagavad gita chapter 14 verse 4 Lord Krishna emphasizes the ephemerality of human life! The present human form was not the end of life. As detailed in bhagavad gita chapter 14 verse 4 Lord Krishna emphatically confirms continuity of life in cosmic system through process of reincarnation, rebirth. As our soul atman, the spirit within was indestructible… the entire span of 8.4 million manifestations in the life of a soul atman was one single cycle of life… absolutely unbroken, uninterrupted!
After death of present body, present human form… our soul atman, the spirit within immediately manifested new body! This circle of life continued until a soul atman reached cosmic end of life… 8.4 millionth manifestation! We were truly an interim stage, a means… a path for our soul atman, the spirit within to reach cosmic end of life! Human form has been termed as an idol (Murti) as of its own, it carried no meaning! In absence of soul atman, the human body was as good as dead!
To understand life… to understand spiritual precepts… our believing in concept of soul atman was mandated by God Almighty. The cosmic journey of life truly belonged to our soul atman and never the manifest physical human form. As no soul atman could purify self of its own… similar as one KG of pure gold sandwiched in a lump of hundred KG of gold ore could not extract self of its own and needs requisite mining machinery and processes… a soul atman also requires undergoing a chain of manifestations to cleanse self of dross impurities within.
For souls atmans to manifest life in cosmic system… life supporting planets like mother earth were needed. No sooner life supporting planets like mother earth evolved… souls atmans connected to our solar system immediately started manifesting life on mother earth. It is for this reason planet Earth has been termed as mother earth, mother womb that facilitated manifestation of life on planet earth.
As souls atmans were intrinsic part of God Almighty… God has been termed as cosmic father! If an individual grain of sand is an independent soul atman… the whole mound God Almighty! If an individual piece of puzzle is an independent soul atman… the completed puzzle God Almighty! In fact God Almighty existed within all living beings in miniscule form as our soul atman, the consciousness within! The moment a soul atman gains absolute purity… it enters abode of God (kingdom of God)… termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism, a point of no return!
Every purified soul atman merges with super soul atman, god almighty himself… prime reason why in Hinduism God Almighty is also termed Parmatman. The essence of all souls’ atmans was not distinct from God Almighty. One truly realized God Almighty… moment one reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana in Hinduism). For a traveler of spiritual path, God Almighty always existed within us as our soul atman, the consciousness within… prime reason why a spiritual traveler never feared anything in life!
When we as a soul atman were part of God Almighty… what more could we ask of God Almighty!
