According to the Vedic Version, countless universes, as numerous as
mustard seeds in a sack, are generated from the breathing of
Maha-vishnu. It is said that universes emanate from Maha-vishnu's skin
pores in seed form as He exhales, then expand and contract again as
they are sucked back into God when He inhales.
Thus universes are created and and destroyed within one breath of God.
The life-time of the universe, which is one breath of God, has been
calculated to last 311 trillion solar years.
So in my mind this is where the Big Bang theory comes from. The
singularity, the point from which our universe, according to the Big
Bang theory, was generated, is actually one of the skinpores of God.
I guess, that's where Muslims get the idea that God is great. Where as
in Islam it is described that God is great, in the Vedic Version it is
described how God is great.
That's the first thing to learn about God - how great He is. But
that's only a preliminary understanding of God. Higher than worshiping
God in awe and reverence as the great one, is to relate to Him as a
friend or a child or even one's lover. This becomes possible when, by
the mercy of the spiritual master, one is allowed entrance into
Krishna's personal life in Vrindavan.
The soul can have 5 basic relationships with Krishna -
1. Shanta rasa is a neutral relationship with God. God is regarded as
the original creator and cause of all causes, and the maintainer of
2. Dasya rasa means that you see God as your Lord and master. You are
willing to serve Him with your life and soul. Krishna is the most
perfect and munificent lord one can have.
3. Sakhya rasa is the stage, where you see Krishna as your best and
most intimate friend. Here the soul forgets that Krishna is God. He
only regards Krishna as his best and most beloved friend.
4. Vatsalya rasa is the parental relationship. Here the soul is
Krishna's father or mother. You are God's parent. Krishna is your
5. In Madhurya rasa the soul only sees Krishna as her most intimate
lover. You are God's wife or girlfriend.
In fact, all the relationships we enjoy in the material world to
partner, children, family, friends, and society are nothing but
distorted imitations of the soul's original relationship with God.
By human calculation, a thousand ages taken together form the duration
of Brahma's one day (4,32 billion years). And such also is the
duration of his night. (Bg. 8.17)
At the beginning of Brahma's day, all living entities become manifest
from the unmanifest state, and thereafter, when the night falls, they
are merged into the unmanifest again. (Bg. 8.18)
Again and again, when Brahma's day arrives, all living entities come
into being, and with the arrival of Brahma's night they are helplessly
annihilated. (Bg. 8.19)
Yet there is another unmanifest nature, which is eternal and is
transcendental to this manifested and unmanifested matter. It is
supreme and is never annihilated. When all in this world is
annihilated, that part remains as it is. (Bg. 8.20)
That which the Vedantists describe as unmanifest and infallible, that
which is known as the supreme destination, that place from which,
having attained it, one never returns-that is My supreme abode. (Bg.
