Easy Journey to Other Planets Chapter One Antimaterial Worlds
The Lord claims to be the father of all species of life. He claims that all living beings--regardless of what they are--are part and parcel of Him. Consequently, the Bhagavad-gita is meant for all of them. In the Gita there is information of this sanatana nature of the Supreme Lord. There is also information of His abode, which is far beyond the material sky, and of the sanatana nature of the living beings.
Lord Krsna, in the Bhagavad-gita, also informs us that this material world is full of miseries in the shape of birth, old age, disease and death. Even in the topmost planet of the material universe, Brahmaloka, these miseries are present. Only in His own abode is there a total absence of misery. In that abode there is no need of light from sun, moon or fire. The planets are self-luminous. Life there is perpetual and full of knowledge and bliss. That is what is known as sanatana-dharma. It is therefore natural to conclude that the living entities must return home, back to Godhead, to enjoy life in the sanatana-dhama with the sanatana-purusa, or the purusottama, Lord Sri Krsna. They must not remain to rot in this miserable land of material existence. There is no happiness in the material sphere--even in Brahmaloka--so plans and activities for elevation to higher planets within the material universe are carried out by those who are less intelligent. Less intelligent men also take shelter of demigods and only derive benefits which endure for a limited period. Thus their religious principles and the benefits derived therefrom are only temporary. The intelligent man, however, abandons all engagements in the name of religion and takes shelter of the Supreme Personality of Godhead and thus receives absolute protection from the Almighty Father. Sanatana-dharma is therefore the process of bhakti-yoga, by which one can come to know the sanatana Lord and His sanatana abode.By this process only can one return to the spiritual universe, the sanatana-dhama, to take part in the sanatana enjoyment prevailing there.
