Jul 17 '18 at 7:52 comment added user9072 The concept of Purusha doesn't mean atheistic. Atheistic concept arises from the lack of a personal god or Ishvara who is a sort of manifested creator. And yes the higher Purusha = lower Purusha = one and only endless Purusha.
Jul 17 '18 at 7:29 comment added The Crimson Universe Yeah, by annihilation i meant the destruction of this material universe (galaxies, planets etc.) and not the soul ... So after this destruction, and if i understand you correctly, like vedanta, samkhya too believes that our souls (lower purusha) simply merges with the higher purusha?? Is that it? ... Does samkhya even believes in a higher purusha? ... I thought samkhya was atheistic ... If samkhya really believes in a higher purusha, then is this higher purusha only the totality of all individual souls?

Jul 16 '18 at 13:38 comment added user9072 Jiva atmas indirectly are responsible for the creation, because Jivas are ultimately nothing but the Purusha, which had originally created the universe and taken various envelopes of Prakriti to reach the Jiva state. It is said that Brahman is the creator, Brahman is the creation, and Brahman is the creature. Brahman in Vedanta is identical to Purusha in Samkhya, although the Vedic Purusha has a different concept.
Jul 16 '18 at 13:35 comment added user9072 Annihilation occurs to give rise to another cycle. Our timeline is cyclic.
Jul 16 '18 at 13:35 comment added user9072 After annihilation, basically nothing happens to us. We are Brahman, which in our Jiva form is a compartmentalized state of consciousness. Think of it as, powering N number of houses with unlimited electricity. Electricity is infinite, you can't count it like counting marbles. But Jivas are countable at the universal level. The annihilation you mentioned is not the annihilation of consciousness, but merely the material universe. In Scriptures its written that the spiritual universe still remains intact and is not affected by annihilation
Jul 16 '18 at 13:26 comment added The Crimson Universe @ Arkaprabha, Thanks for the post man. To be honest i had a bit of trouble understanding the scriptural quotes, but the purports somewhat helped. It's sad, that the scriptures didn't mention how us jeeva atmas, created the entire cosmos. I guess we will never know the answer to that question. Do you have any idea, what happens to us souls after destruction (during non-manifestation) ... I mean where do we go after annihilation? Thnx.
Jul 16 '18 at 13:24 comment added user9072 hinduism.stackexchange.com/questions/15363/… - is a question asked by Pandya too. This question might be helpful.
Jul 16 '18 at 13:13 comment added The Crimson Universe @ Pandya, The sankhya of Kapila / the aetheistic sankhya, that we are discussing here, did it originate before the Mahabharata war. Im asking coz Krishna too spoke of sankhya in his Gita verses. Does this mean Krishna was mentioning the atheistic sankhya in his Gita?

Jul 16 '18 at 8:54 comment added user9072 Okay I will edit that. Although I took the sutras from Samkhya Sutras.
Jul 16 '18 at 8:52 comment added Pandya Shankhya Karika is not attributed to Kapila Muni, it's attributed to Ishvara Krishna. Shankya Sutras are attributed to sage Kapila.
