    The souls return even from the three worlds of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva
    182. Taijasopaadhibrahmalokaastrayah punaraavartino gitaah.

    Translation: The souls return even from the three worlds of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, who are the energetic bodies of God, as per the Gita.

    Explanation: Brahma Loka is the abode of mediated God in energetic forms. It has three regions: Brahma Loka, the world of Brahma or the Creator, Vishnu Loka, the world of Vishnu or the Ruler and Shiva Loka, the world of Shiva or the Destroyer of creation. Those souls existing in materialized human bodies on earth, which worshipped these energetic forms without recognizing the contemporary human form here due to the repulsion of common media cannot recognize God in energetic form in Brahma Loka due to the same principle, since these souls exist in energetic bodies after death. This is mentioned in the Gita (Aabrahma bhuvanaat…).
  • Buddha said even the gods return to human form for even they are trapped within samsara.
    This is where people get confused with Godhead & the Gods.
    How many Gods are there?
    What colour is a rainbow? One rainbow contains many colours. This is how I like to think of Godhead & the interchangeable nature of Brahma/Vishnu\Shiva. Lest we forget Sarasvati/Devi\Laksmi, etc.
    Comparing The gods is like comparing religions......the core is the important issue.
    Causal/Astral\Material. I often remind myself their are always 3 reasons for anything. You,Me & God.
