Cause of All Causes – Sunday Meditations

From Bhagavat-Purana 1.1.1

“It is natural that a philosophical mind wants to know about the origin of the creation. At night he sees the stars in the sky, and he naturally speculates about their inhabitants. Such inquiries are natural for man because man has a developed consciousness which is higher than that of the animals.

The author of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam gives a direct answer to such inquiries. He says that the Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa is the origin of all creations. He is not only the creator of the universe, but the destroyer as well. The manifested cosmic nature is created at a certain period by the will of the Lord. It is maintained for some time, and then it is annihilated by His will.

Therefore, the supreme will is behind all cosmic activities. Of course, there are atheists of various categories who do not believe in a creator, but that is due to a poor fund of knowledge. The modern scientist, for example, has created space satellites, and by some arrangement or other, these satellites are thrown into outer space to fly for some time at the control of the scientist who is far away. Similarly, all the universes with innumerable stars and planets are controlled by the intelligence of the Personality of Godhead…”

http://vedicilluminations.com/ http://onthewaytokrishna.com/ I was initiated into the Brahma-Madhva-Gaudiya Sampradaya by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada in 1976. I was married in 1985 and have throughout the years tried to serve the orders of His Divine Grace as far as possible, sometimes living in the temples he founded, sometimes outside. He literally saved me from gross degradation, misery, and madness through his instructions, although I never met him physically. I have a Bhakti Sastri degree. Expert Indian cuisines-Vegetarian cooking. Astrological and Spiritual Counseling for over 30 years with a Jyoti-Ratna dipoma in Vedic astrology. http://vedicilluminations.com/astrology-services I've studied comparative theology/philosophy/religion for over 10 years. I've also extensively studied Intelligent Design Theory both modern and ancient. There is God, or the Supreme Fountainhead of all Existence, and it really is in our own best interest I believe, to get over the mental/emotional stuff in our hearts that unnaturally seperate us in heart from the most wonderful and delightful experience we can have, revived and healed in our relationship to Godhead, Who most definitely exists.....I'm happy to talk with anyone.
