In eka jIva vAda also, you consider the vyavahara, Ishwara and sastras to
be eternal as long as you perceive them as otherwise you will violate valid
sabda pramana. Though sastras are your imagination, you have imagined them
with a set of attributes which include apareusheyatvam, nityatvam etc. You
imagine (based on sastras) an Ishwara who is trans spatio-temporal
limitations, that is exist before and after creation cycles.
As you know, there are variations of eka jIva vada but in none of them you
consider Ishwara to be created and destroyed.
