“Final doom is the inexpressible state of the total identity of Soul with God while the body yet is”…… as per metaphysical vision of Bhagavad Gita.
Sri Krishna teaches in Bhagavad Gita:
एतद्योनीनि भूतानि सर्वाणीत्युपधारय।
अहं कृत्स्नस्य जगतः प्रभवः प्रलयस्तथा॥
etadyonīni bhūtāni sarvānītyupadhāraya
aham krtsnasya jagatah prabhavah pralayastathā
“Know that all beings arise from these two natures and that I am both the creator and the end of the whole world.”
All beings spring from these animate and inanimate natures. These are the two sources of all life. God (Sri Krishn) is the root of the whole universe, both its creator and destroyer. It springs from him and is also dissolved in him. He is the spring of nature as long as it exists, but he is also the power that dissolves nature after a sage has overcome its limitations. But this is a matter of intuition.
Men have always been intrigued by these universal questions of creation and destruction, which is sometimes calls ‘‘doom’’. Almost all holy books of the world have attempted to explain these phenomena in one way or another. Some of them insist that the end of the world is brought about by submersion under water, while according to others the earth is annihilated because the sun comes too close to it and burns it. Some call the event the Day of Final Judgement, the day on which God judges all beings, while others explain away the idea of doom as a recurrent feature or as dependent on a specific cause.
According to Sri Krishn, however, nature is without beginning and end. Changes there have been, but it has never been completely destroyed. According to Indian mythology, Manu experienced a doom in which eleven sages had sailed, by tying their boat to the fin of a fish, to a towering peak of the Himalayas and found shelter there. In sacred composition called the Shreemad Bhagwat, which is contemporaneous with Sri Krishn-God came down to earth for his pleasure-and dealing with his life and precepts, the sage Mrikandu’s son Markandeya Ji has rendered an account of the doom he claims to have seen with his own “eyes.”He lived on the north of the Himalayas, on the bank of the Pushpbhadr river.
According to Chapters 8 and 9 of the twelfth section of Shreemad Bhagwat, the great sage Shaunak and some others told Sut Ji (a pupil of Vyas) that Markandeya Ji had had a vision of Balmukund (infant Vishnu) on a Banyan-leaf. But the difficulty was that he belonged to their lineage and was born only sometime before them; and it was a fact that the earth was never submerged and destroyed after his birth. With all this, how was it possible that he had beheld destruction of the earth? What kind of deluge was it?
Sut Ji told them that, pleased with his prayers, God had manifested himself to Markandeya Ji, who had then expressed his wish to see God’s maya, driven by which the Soul has to wander through endless births. God had granted his wish and one day, when the sage was sitting absorbed in contemplation, he saw towering, furious waves of the sea hurtling on to him from all sides. Terrible fishes leapt from the waves. He scurried here and there to save himself. The sky, the sun, the moon, heaven itself, and all the constellations were drowned in the flood. In the meantime, he saw a Banyan tree with an infant on one of its leaves. As the child breathed in, Markandeya Ji was drawn inside him by the inrushing air, and there he discovered his hermitage along with the solar system and the whole universe alive and intact. Soon after, he was cast out with an exhalation. When his eyes opened at last, Markandeya Ji found himself safe on his seat in his hermitage. So, whatever he had seen was but a dream-a vision.
It is evident that the sage had this divine, transcendental vision-this intuitive experience – only after worship spread over years beyond reckoning. It was a perception by his Soul; everything outside was the same as before.
So, doom, too, is an event that is revealed by God within the heart of a yogi. When at the completion of the process of worship, worldly influences cease to be and only God remains in the yogi’s mind-that is doom. This dissolution is not an external phenomenon. Final doom is the inexpressible state of the total identity of Soul with God while the body yet is. This Is something that can be felt through action alone. Whether it is you or me, we are victims of delusion if we judge by the mind alone. This is what we are told now.
