Hey guys I had to delete my first account, I was the new Shakta one with the vegan puja questions.
My question here is : Are there places in the Shakta texts where cycles of time are explained ?
Like how there is repetition of chaturyugs with sort of similar set of events, but some differences too, obviously. Then each kalp with thousand chaturyugs will approximately repeat also with some differences of kalp-bhed ?
And then the universe repeats more precisely and accurately all over again, endlessly ? Eternal return, basically, with the jivas moving through the bodies as per their actions, deeds.
Also, it’s given that Devi shows the gods the huge number of universes with separate deities in charge of them. Do all the universes then repeat over and over with their own unique mahayug/kalp situation going on ?
It seems like every universe would be different of course, but wouldn’t each of them go through repetitive time cycles ? With everything being karma-based like it is here ? Seems like same rules would apply, right ?
Just wondering if there are any mentions of this, or explanations of this, in the beliefs of Shakta sects. I’m of Shakta faith but very new, I converted recently.
