Satyaloka - an essential subject

From Vanipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The universe is divided into fourteen planetary systems. Seven planetary systems, called Bhūr, Bhuvar, Svar, Mahar, Janas, Tapas and Satya, are upward planetary systems, one above the other. There are also seven planetary systems downward, known as Atala, Vitala, Sutala, Talātala, Mahātala, Rasātala and Pātāla, gradually, one below the other. Satyaloka is situated next to Brahmaloka, and its beings are considered to be the epitomes of virtues. However, although the thought of reaching Satyaloka may be rather appealing, the Vaikuntha planets are much higher above Satyaloka, and the ultimate destination that one could crave for is Goloka Vrindavan, the eternal abode of Lord Sri Krishna, reaching where, one would never return to this material creation again.
