1 Answer 1


The cycle of creation and destruction continues. God will create a new universe.

RV.10.190.3. Dhātar, the great Creator, then formed in due order Sun and Moon. He formed in order Heaven and Earth, the regions of the air, and light.

BG 9.7 — O son of Kunti, all elementary world becomes "My" nature at end of cycle(Kalpa); Again "I" create them at the beginning of the cycle.

BG 8.18 - On arrival of day, all manifestations originate from "Unmanifest"; On arrival of night they annihilate into [what is] known as "Unmanifest" only.

BG 8.19 - This [same] elementary world only happens again & again; Annihilates upon arrival of night, [and] originates upon arrival of day.

  • I remember reading another piece of Vedic knowledge on this topic, but forget where and I cannot find it. But it said that basically every instance of the universe is contained within each breath of Lord Vishnu. So when he starts inhaling, a new universe is created and expands, and then when he starts exhaling -- it starts contracting until it is back to nothingness. And the cycle repeats with each breath. This also kind of coincides with our current understanding of astrophysics as well (not the cycles but universe expansion/contraction).

    This maybe found in the Srimada Bhagvatam ŚB 10.87.41 & Brahma-saṁhitā 5.48 @Ruslan ... :)
