Eternity _ the Infinite.

The Supreme Lord is known by many names; of them, Eternity or the Infinite is one of them. It signifies Time, Space and Continuum of the past, the present, and the future; the Creator who creates the worlds within worlds and the worlds without worlds. In the Indian texts of the Upanishads, it is the name of Vishnu or Ananta as He is known; – one of the many names of the thousands of the Vishnusahastranama; also the serpent on which He lies upon, known as Sheshnaga, the divine snake who supports this universe on His thousand heads. Again, the Infinite is also known as Kaal, Time Eternal, and the devourer of all things, animate and inanimate. It is also another name for Rudra, the Destroyer, the Mahakaal, the Destroyer of Kaal itself; the fate of the Universe wherefrom it came and wherefrom it will go in the end.

 

The Infinite is the inexhaustible, the unborn, and the indestructible entity. Also known as Brahman, pronounced Brahm, It creates, maintains and destroyers the many worlds that It forms by the governing laws that It gives. It is Existence, Consciousness and Bliss, _ known as Sat_Chid _Ananda, in the Hindu Texts.It is itself the Brahman and itself the Brahmanda, the many universes. It is the All-Knower and what is to be known for the liberation of the soul.It is known to be the highest knowledge, beyond which nothing is to be known; everything else is superficial. The sages repeat that once you know it you are liberated from the cycle of birth and death.

 

As the Supreme Lord it is one without beginning and one without an end. It procreates the world from within itself and manifests the different types of matter _ inanimate and animate. It is His power that makes the animate beings move and the animate remain at rest. The Vedic texts and the Upanishads declare that being the only One, in the beginning, He had the desire to be many, and so He became many and all this that you see is His Maya, that He plays with. To Him, the entire world’s a stage, where He becomes the animate and the inanimate; as the animate, He is known as Jeeva, and as the world, He is Prakriti or Nature.

 

Man has evolved after 84, 00000 births, transmigrated from the various class types of protoplasm to amoeba to fish and mammals and plants and birds. On the other planets how and what life exists , we do not know , but considering Earth itself , Man is known to be the highest creation of God ,made in His image.Eternity _ the Infinite.
