Awareness of Impermanence

Buddhism defines this concept of Impermanence as “Anicca”, whereas Vedic scriptures call it “Anitya”. Miteiya’s discourse on impermanence can be read at two different instances. One instance is the incident where “Vast Form of Krishna” has been exhibited in Part 2 of the Book. And another instance of this discourse is in Part 3 wherein Buddhism is decoded.

Miteiya reiterates the teachings of previous masters and says that everything that exists is “Inconstant, Transient and Ever-changing”. He defines this as a “fluid state” during his decoding of Sages like “Sandhipani of Bhagwata Puran” and “Khidr of Islam”.

Miteiya further says that Impermanence cannot be objectified and hence Spiritualism cannot be converted into religions. The core belief of this book bases itself upon the paradox called “Institutionalization of Spark”. As a spark cannot be converted into discipline, spiritualism cannot be contained within any religion. If you are lucky, you can only witness the “Vast Form of Krishna”. Neither you can learn about it nor anyone can teach you about it.

To explain Impermanence, Miteiya uses the example of “Vast Form of Krishna” to explain the same concept. Miteiya further reinforces his views through his definition of Shiva. He says, “By very definition, the word Shiva is Shiway, which means “Beyond””. Hence it is impossible to visualize Shiva or the Formless Supreme God.

Miteiya says that Shiva cannot be explained but Shiva reincarnates himself as Hanuman. Hanuman is shown as a baboon, a symbol of enthusiasm and faith. The word Hanuman evolves from Sanskrit word “Anumaan”, which means “Approximation”. Miteiya suggests avoiding approximation of Impermanence. He brings in a character called “Pondrik”, who is approximately same as Krishna but is completely evil.

Miteiya also speaks about “Ixion” in Greek mythology, who visualized “Hera” and remained in her imaginary arms. In one of his decodings, Miteiya speaks about “Pururavas”, which also means “Previsualization”. The previsualization is one of the biggest impediments in the journey of enlightenment.

In one of the discourse, Miteiya narrates the story of Kalidas, who used to visualize the image of “Goddess Kali”. This imagination was becoming an impediment in his journey. Miteiya hence suggests that visualization of Impermanence can be one of the biggest impediments and should be avoided.
