Thread: Souls, gender, sarupya

  1. #1

    Light Souls, gender, sarupya

    I learned that one may achieve the liberation called sarupya; to achieve a body like that of the Lord (Vishnu). Does that mean that the primordial state of all souls is male? Are there no women in Vaikuntha?

    You can read a description of the Vaikuntha world and liberated souls who live there in the Srimad Bhagavatam:
    - verses 2.9.9 and forward at http://vedabase.net/sb/2/9/en
    - see also Bhagavatam canto 3, chapter 15 at http://vedabase.net/sb/3/15/en

    See verses 3.15.17 "In the Vaikuṇṭha planets the inhabitants fly in their airplanes, accompanied by their wives and consorts ..." and 3.15.20.

    regards
