न मे विदुः सुरगणाः प्रभवं न महर्षयः ।
अहमादिर्हि देवानां महर्षीणां च सर्वशः ॥१०-२॥
Lord Krishna addresses King Arjuna thus… my origination (that stems from big bang) cannot be understood by gods and goddesses and saints and sages of different era. My origination is not a matter of speculation by physical manifest beings who could never understand process of my origin through limited power of worldly senses. Why?
As I exist from times immemorial and is the cause of entire physical manifest life… I am the direct cause of existence of gods and goddesses and saints and sages of different era. I exist from times when nothing existed in cosmos. There was a time when even present cosmos did not exist. I exist from anadi kaal… meaning I had no beginning in time.
Lord Krishna says, O Arjuna: my existence in cosmos… my origin in cosmos was not by chance or unexpected. My origin through big bang theory can only be understood by one who traveled spiritual path… path of unknown! As human beings were primarily sublime consciousness that manifested human form to work out its karma… it was beyond human intellect to understand my essence, my creation… my origination!
Even gods and goddesses could never understand facts of my origin. Lord Krishna says… I am beyond reach of all celestial beings existing in cosmos. Here Lord Krishna represents role of God almighty… termed Brahman in Hinduism! As ordained in Bhagavad Gita… Lord Krishna himself was not Brahman (God Almighty)! But in times of need, when an ordinary mortal, human being took unto himself responsibility of entire creation… one was termed an avatar, savior… messiah!
As per Lord Krishna… it was beyond sages and saints of different era to understand entity of God Almighty… termed Brahman in Hinduism! Bhagavad Gita states in explicit terms that God Almighty (Brahman in Hinduism) can only be understood by traveling path of jnana yoga… path of absolute wisdom! In simpler words… one reached God Almighty only via path of spirituality… never religion!
To know God, to realize God… undertaking spiritual journey was mandated by God Almighty! To understand our real essence, our real self… our soul atman, the spirit within… traveling spiritual path was an absolute necessity… something one could ever deny! If we truly wanted to understand how explosion of big bang resulted in creation of present cosmos… our traveling path of pure spirituality was mandated by God Almighty.
The word Lila in Hinduism stood for creation of cosmos through big bang theory… something that was beyond reach of human beings including scientists’ world over. When something created of its own, when something emerged from nothing… it was termed as Lila of God Almighty (Brahman in Hinduism)! Human beings could never understand that from something as small as half the size of a thumb… the whole cosmos could be created!
Furthermore, most human beings could never visualize that God Almighty was not the form of human beings! Masses… commoners always worshipped Saguna form of God (having a form). It was beyond their capability to imagine Nirakaar form of God (having no form)! The Nirakaar form of God can only be realized by traveling spiritual path as ordained in Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism. Only believers of Nirguna form of God Almighty finally succeeded in reaching God in their lifetime.
Explaining creation of God Almighty, lord Krishna further says that God Almighty (Brahman in Hinduism) was beginning less… existing from times immemorial! This is proved from big bang theory and also doctrine of Maya advocated by Adi Shankaracharya. The Advaita Vedanta theory also proved beyond doubt that God Almighty was the only truth of life… the one and only one that existed in entire cosmos. Beyond God Almighty nothing exists in cosmos!
Those who believed in Dvaita theory were ignorant about basic precepts of spirituality explained in Bhagavad Gita. A soul atman, the spirit within was not different from God Almighty (Brahman). If an individual grain of sand was an independent soul atman… the whole mound God Almighty. Every soul atman is God Almighty in miniscule form existing within every human being… every form of life! In Hinduism… a soul is termed atman!
Lord Krishna further says I am the cause of all forms of physical manifest life in cosmos… including gods and goddesses! Even though gods and goddesses never had a form, their existence resulted from creation of cosmos through big bang theory. Life in cosmic life cycle evolved in stages. On the whole every soul atman manifested a maximum of 8.4 million bodies of which initial 7.3 million manifestations occurred in insect, plant and animal form. In the remaining 1.1 million manifestations… human beings were expected to reach stage of enlightenment!
The different forms of god and goddesses were simply attributes of God Almighty that had no physical entity in cosmic system! No form of god or goddess ever existed in heaven or hell (termed swarga and naraka in Hinduism). Both heaven and hell were interim places of stay for souls’ atmans that did not manifest a form on mother earth. After death of human beings, the soul atman within immediately manifested a new life based on residual balance of karma of that moment! If matching parents were not available on mother earth, souls atmans hibernated in heaven or hell… in heaven, if the residual balance of karma was positive… and hell, it negative!
In simpler words, Lord Krishna says… when I was the only truth of life in cosmic system… gods and goddesses, sages and saints were only a medium to reach cosmic truths of life. Apart from believing in them… one must search for absolute truth itself. Unless one contemplated on hidden cosmic truths of life… one could never reach subtle truths of life knowing which human beings finally realized god, realized self… reached stage of enlightenment forever!
Having a spiritual master, preceptor was important on spiritual path… but presence of a preceptor in our life was not the only truth of life. Every single spiritual master… spiritual preceptor only acted as a guide in the spiritual journey of life. The path of spirituality is always traveled all alone. In matters spiritual… every single soul atman was independent of other. Knowing gods and goddesses… knowing spiritual masters does not mean one reached cosmic end of life. God Almighty could never be understood that way!
To understand God… one had to understand Lila of God! One had to understand Advaita Vedanta theory and doctrine of Maya of Hinduism! To reach God… one had to contemplate on God Almighty is via path of jnana yoga, path of absolute wisdom. How many people in this world were competent to travel path of spirituality. Most human beings did not even understand the meaning of spirituality… what to say of reaching God in their lifetime!
By understanding nature of spirit, our soul atman… the spirit within human beings finally realized true nature of God Almighty. Truly God can only be perceived by inner eyes… never eyes governed by senses and mind. God Almighty was beyond capture of mind and science. To understand God in right earnestness… one had to indulge in teachings of Bhagavad Gita. Only then one finally understood what Lila of God was all about.
Bhagavad Gita chapter 10 Verse 2 emphasizes on understanding origin of cosmos as detailed in Bhagavad Gita. If one understood all about big bang theory… one also came to understand entity of God Almighty in cosmic system. The origination of cosmos through big bang theory was not a scientific concept… it was purely a spiritual matter much beyond comprehension of most scientists world over. Only Albert Einstein rightly understood origin of cosmos through big bang theory. Albert Einstein also came to know that God Almighty was that singularity in the beginning of cosmos, explosion of which resulted in big bang.
Through Gita chapter 10 Verse 2 Lord Krishna also confirms that unless God Almighty created present cosmos… nothing would exist in cosmos. This also proved beyond doubt existence of God Almighty in cosmic system. Existence of God in cosmos is an entity that could never be disputed by anybody world over. If atheists do not believe in existence of God… it was their fault. People disbelieving in existence of God Almighty do not mean God did not exist. Existence of God Almighty was integral to existence of present cosmos… says Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism.
