While I was reading more and more, I got to know that there are different lokas below and above earth and the distance described for them is only some yojana sway (1 yojana = 8 miles = 12 kilometers), we have discovered planets hundreds of light years away ( 1 light year = 9.46 × 10^12 km). These planetary systems are around 10000, 25000, 80000 yojanas away then why we haven't found these planets and any person on these planets?

  • Hello, thanks for your answer, but this is the only reason I am asking, why they are not visible?

  • They are made up of matter that is too subtle to interact with or detect with our gross senses and instruments. It is similar to dark matter, which doesn't reflect light, so it's invisble.

  • I totally agree with you but what about the lower planetary systems which are more gross than us, they should be seen by us

  • The Patalas are definitely not more gross than us; they're as subtle as the upper realms. All these supernatural realms are made of up subtle matter.
