To elaborate on the question, I am assuming that in the beginning there was no Atma stuck in maya, is there any information on how the perfect Atma got stuck in Maya? Is my assumption wrong? To build on that, how can anything be eternal? Everything should have a start and end isn't it? Because something has to initiate first for the universe to be born, say big bang! and there are many theories on how the universe will end. Shouldn't there be something similar for brahman?

    Taittiriya Upanishad - [Brahman] wished, may I be many, may I grow forth. He brooded over himself (like a man performing penance). After he had thus brooded, he sent forth (created) all, whatever there is. – Dark Knight Feb 25 at 18:09

    Thank you @DarkKnight for showing this interesting verse! Does it mean that Brahman has "I"ness? And apologies for duplicate questions, I have edited out some of the non context questions as well. The question-answers I found on the forum didn't quite fulfil my curiosity. – Rohan Deshpande Feb 28 at 10:56

    There are several views on whence it began? Several say it's all a dream of the Supreme Reality (Brahman Satya, Jagata Mithya). And if you would have noticed, it would be impossible for us to fathom whence our dream starts, they just pop out, as much we can remember of them anyway. Thus, similarly since it's the Dream of the Supreme, thus it has always been eternal and will be eternal, subject to constant Projection (सृष्टि) and Dissolution (विलय), thus there's no end and no beginning to this samsara(संसार) cycle. [ Something on the line of maybe Dark (the TV series) ;, :)) ] – Vivikta Mar 1 at 4:21
