Everything is God’s Energy
The scientists state the big bang theory. This is how they believe this universe began. But this causes a problem, because the scientists also state that matter and time is eternal. So how can there be a creation with matter and time having a beginning? Where did matter and time come from?
The scientists have no answer. Only the Bhagavad-Gita can answer these questions.
“My Self is the very source of creation.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.5)
What the scientists call creation is known as the material manifestation or the material world by Vedic terms.
Before the creation, time and matter existed in another form as energies of Lord Krishna. At creation, the matter changed from one form to another, basically what we see today, solid stones, planets, metal, and so on. This is also accepted by the scientists as the Law of Conservation. Energy cannot be destroyed but it can change forms.
So basically everything is the energy of Lord Krishna. The energies existed before creation and at creation, the energy changed from one form to another.
Only Lord Krishna existed before the Creation
Before creation there was nothing, this is what the scientists believe. The Bhagavad-Gita teaches that God is eternal and He existed before the creation.
“Brahma, it is I, the Personality of Godhead, who was existing before the creation, when there was nothing but Myself. ” (Lord Krishna, Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.9.33)
Where did the matter and time come from to form the universe, what is known as the creation?
It comes from Lord Krishna (God). It is from Lord Krishna that everything comes. Time and matter are energies of Lord Krishna. That’s why time and matter is eternal, because Lord Krishna is eternal. His energies are also eternal.
“Material nature and the living entities should be understood to be beginningless.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 13.20)
The above verse confirms that matter and time (material nature) and souls are eternal.
“The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Time I am.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 11.32)
The above is another confirmation that time is the energy of Lord Krishna.
“This material nature, which is one of My energies, is working under My direction, O son of Kunti, producing all moving and nonmoving beings.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.10)
The above confirms that matter and time (material nature) are energies of Lord Krishna and they are working under His direction to create the planets, stones, metals, trees, animals and so on.
“The living entities in this conditioned world are My eternal fragmental parts.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 15.7)
The above verse confirms that living entities (souls) are eternal, because they are parts of the eternal God, Lord Krishna. Since Lord Krishna is eternal, His parts must also be eternal.
What do other religions teach?
The non-Vedic religions are very much against the theory that everything is God’s energies. Based on the Laws of Physics, matter and time is eternal and the Bhagavad-Gita explains that these are energies of God and thus everything is God (His energies). The non-Vedic teachings are non-scientific.
The energetic and the energy are one, so in one sense everything is God but this does not mean we can worship matter or time as God. Everything is the energy of God and based on what God (Lord Krishna) Himself states, we have to worship Him in His form of Krishna only and not His energies (matter and time).
“But those who always worship Me with exclusive devotion, meditating on My transcendental form.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.22)
The above verse confirms that we have to worship the form of Lord Krishna as God and not anything else.
“Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, become My devotee, offer obeisances to Me and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.34)
The above verse is another confirmation that we have to only worship Lord Krishna.
Creation is Cyclic
The Bhagavad-Gita teaches that creation is cyclic. There is creation, existence for some time, then destruction, and then re-creation. The scientists also accept that creation is cyclic.
“O son of Kunti, at the end of the millennium all material manifestations enter into My nature, and at the beginning of another millennium, by My potency, I create them again.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.7)
Millennium in the above verse means one Maha Kalpa. This is 311.040 trillion years. This is the lifespan of this universe. The universe is created, exists for 311.040 trillion years, and then everything is destroyed, there is un-manifestation for 311.040 trillion years, and then there is another creation. This cycle is repeated continuously and is related to Maha-Vishnu (an expansion of Lord Krishna). When He exhales, there is creation and existence and when He inhales, there is un-manifestation. The whole lifespan of the universe is just one breath of time for Maha-Vishnu. This is how great the real God, Lord Krishna is.
We are 155.522 trillion years into the current exhalation of Maha-Vishnu, this is the current age of the universe. We have another 155.518 trillion years to go before the end of the universe and the current cycle.
Don’t be deceived or fooled by those who say the end is near or these are last days.
“The whole cosmic order is under Me. Under My will it is automatically manifested again and again, and under My will it is annihilated at the end.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.8)
It is by the will of Lord Krishna that everything is created and destroyed, and not by the will of men who have recently created their ideologies.
