Namaste Sri Sadananda
Time is not there in Brahman. If there is time in Brahman there will Dvaita
of Brahman and time. It means Time is created only by Ishwara with Maya. In
Puranas also we read there are 4 Yugas and the Yugas will keep on repeating
Kruta Yuga, Treta, Dwapara, Kali, again Kruta, Treta, Dwapara, Kali...
After one life of Brahma he sleeps and there will be Pralaya. But you
cannot say universe is completely destroyed. It is in avyakta form. Brahma
will wake up and again same Universe is created.
Time is a cycle like seasons. The same events will keep on repeating. In
the next 28th Kali Yuga of same Manvantara and same day of Brahma, same
Vijaya Nama Samvatsara, the same events will happen. Another Advaita list
will be there. Another Sri Sadananda will send a message on same subject
'Which one is first in the creation sequence' and another Venkatesh will
send a reply exactly by this message.
Every event is pre-determined. There is no free will. People arguing for
free will are all brainwashed by Maya. Small minute events also are
pre-determined. When I go for a walk in the morning it is pre-determined.
Nothing can change the future. If you think you can change future it is
because of Maya.
Another way to see things is God himself does all activities. We are not
doing anything. If someone thinks he is doing any karma he is a fool.
Srivaishnavas are saying in Sankalpa 'Bhagavan Eva Sva Seshabhutena Svasmai
Svapreetaye Svayameva Kaarayati'. God is doing everything through Man. Man
is His instrument. God is doing everything Himself for His own pleasure.
Where is the Free Will of Man?
