For those who are not familiar with Krishna consciousness it would be a good idea to read the following:
You may also want to look at this explanation:
But maybe you should begin your investigation here:
For those who understand Krishna consciousness we can move on to something Srila Prabhupada said:
"But not all of them go back to Godhead. Even Lord Brahma himself doesn’t always go back to Godhead. In the 9th canto Srila Prabhupada says: “Both the Lord and the living entity, being qualitatively spirit soul, have the tendency for peaceful enjoyment, but when the part of the Supreme Personality of Godhead unfortunately wants to enjoy independently, without Krsna, he is put into the material world, where he begins his life as Brahma and is gradually degraded to the status of an ant or a worm in stool.” (SB 9.24.58 ppt) So it appears we have all been Brahmas, but have fallen down."
Is there not a problem here?
How can we all begin as Brahmas?
I have thought about this and think there is a problem.
Let me explain it to you.
There was some souls that fell from the spiritual world. Let us say there was 10 souls that fell in the beginning (the number do not matter because the problem is the same). What happens now? Now they all begin as Brahmas. So now we have 10 universes with 10 Brahmas. Let us look at one of those universes. What are Brahma doing? Can you explain that to me? What can he do? If he wants to create a flower then he needs a soul for the flower...right? Where does this soul come from? Remember that the other 9 souls that fell are in their own universe facing the same problem. So he can't use those souls for his flower creation. So what are Brahma doing? Is he waiting for some (other) souls to fall from the spiritual world? But they to will begin as Brahmas, so he can't use them for his flower creation. Can you see the problem? What are Brahma doing? The only thing he can do is sit in his universe and do nothing. Well...he can sit and meditate but that will get him nowhere. He will just be in his universe alone and without any company. No flowers, no animals, no humans. Nothing.
How to solve this problem?
I have talk with Dina Sharana das ( https://twitter.com/dinasharanadas ) disciple of Srila Prabhupada Founder Acharya of ISKCON and he has joined with me inviting responses.
He would like to be quoted for this: "This is an interesting question that Jan has brought up. We do not yet have definitive answers. I would be interested to have more information."
