What Is The Spiritual And Scientific Significance of The 233 Lokas Mentioned In The Shevapuraann?

The ShevPuraann, the sacred ancient spiritual text of Bhaarat, indicates the existence of 233 Lokas or Worlds located on 233 concentric spherical layers of our own Mini-universe.
On first glance, these Lokas appear to be just an imagined story. But, it actually isn’t so.
A deeper examination reveals the deeper spiritual and scientific significance both symbolically and literally.

The Shevapuraanna, broadly speaking, talks of and indicates about the existence of 233 Lokas in the following four broadly classified worlds or layers:

(i) The स्थूल Sthool/Physical World consisting of 8 Lokas including the Paatala Loka (1st) and the Earth (8th) from the centre of our Mini-Universe.


(ii) The सूक्ष्म Sukshm/Astral World consisting of 108 Lokas including the Heavens. It includes the सत्यलोक Satyalok (14th) below the ब्रह्मलोक Brhmalok, क्षमालोक Kshmaalok (28th) below the विष्णुलोक Veshhnnulok, शुचिलोक Shuchelok (56th) below the रुद्रलोक Rudralok, अहिंसालोक Ahensaalok (112th) below the ईश्वरलोक Eshwaralok from the centre of our Mini-Universe.


(iii) The कारण Kaarann/Causal World consisting of 117 Lokas including the topmost Brhmacharya Loka. It includes the महासत्यलोक MahaaSatyalok (14th) below the महाब्रह्मलोक MahaaBrhmalok, महाक्षमालोक MahaaKshmaalok (28th) below the महाविष्णुलोक MahaaVeshhnnulok, महाशुचिलोक MahaaShuchelok (56th) below the महारुद्रलोक MahaaRudralok, महाअहिंसालोक MahaaAhensaalok (112th) below the महाईश्वरलोक MahaaEshwaralok from the काल KAAL चक्र CHAKRA outwards.

(iv) The COMPLETELY EMPTY SPACE beyond the Brhmacharya Lok.

Dr Swaamee Aprtemaanandaa Jee’s scientific theory and explanation

THE SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE
(i) The words SATYA in ‘Satyalok’, KSHMAA in ‘Kshmaalok’, SHUCHE in ‘Shuchelok’, AHENSAA in ‘Ahensaalok’, and BRHMACHARYA in ब्रह्मचर्यलोक ‘Brhmacharyalok’ actually indicates the qualities that need be possessed and practised by any spiritual-seeker who desires and tries to achieve the spiritual-liberation.
The word सत्य SATYA means the TRUTH. Any spiritual-seeker desiring to raise their own individual consciousness to the levels of the Satyalok and Mahaa Satyalok layers must practise speaking and following the truth in their own life. Else, they won’t be able to ascend to these levels.
The word क्षमा KSHMAA means the FORGIVENESS. Any spiritual-seeker desiring to raise their own individual consciousness to the levels of the Kshmaalok and Mahaa Kshmaalok layers must practise the virtue of the FORGIVENESS in their own life. Else, they won’t be able to ascend to these levels.
The word शुचि SHUCHE means the PURE. Any spiritual-seeker desiring to raise their own individual consciousness to the levels of the Shuchelok and Mahaa Shuchelok layers must practise the virtue of the PURITY in all conducts of their own life. Else, they won’t be able to ascend to these levels.
The word अहिंसा AHENSAA means the NON-VIOLENCE. Any spiritual-seeker desiring to raise their own individual consciousness to the levels of the Ahensaalok and Mahaa Ahensaalok layers must practise the virtue of the NON-VIOLENCE in their own life. Else, they won’t be able to ascend to these levels.
The word ब्रह्मचर्य BRHMACHARYA means the CELIBACY. Any spiritual-seeker desiring to raise their own individual consciousness to the level of the Brhmacharya layer must practise the virtue of the CELIBACY in their own life. Else, they won’t be able to ascend to the level of the Brhmacharya layer and consequently no merger with the ABSOLUTE/STATIC BRHM or SUPREME CONSCIOUSNESS…!
(ii) The repetition of the words of the Sukshm/Astral World - the Satyalok, Kshmaalok, Shuchelok, and Ahensaalok - again to designate different layers in the Kaarann/Causal World implies that the spiritual-seeker my go astray and not rise further even after crossing the काल KAAL चक्र CHAKRA because the distracting tendencies of the MIND are still present even in the Kaarann/Causal World.
Therefore, they need be on guard against such distracting tendencies and still practise the virtues of SATYA (truth), KSHMAA (forgiveness), SHUCHETA (purity), and AHENSAA (non-violence) even in this world of relatively higher consciousness.
(iii) The designation of the topmost layer as the Brhmacharyalok implies the need for the spiritual-seeker to practise the virtue of CELIBACY in their own life. Especially the spiritual-seekers who seek the spiritual-liberation by indulging in तांत्रिक-यौन संबंध Taantrek-Sex must heed this implied advice.
It means that the Taantrek-Sex may help the spiritual-seekers to raise their own individual consciousness to the 232th layer of the MahaaAhensaalok by practising the four virtues of SATYA (truth), KSHMAA (forgiveness), शुचिता SHUCHETA (purity), and AHENSAA (non-violence). But, they would not go beyond it if they don’t give up the primitive instinct of sexual intercourse. This would mean no spiritual liberation at all…!
(iv) The Qualities and Attributes such as the TRUTH, NON-VIOLENCE, COMPASSION, FIRM BELIEF, etc., are required of the spiritual-seeker if they wish to cross the spherical wheel or whirlpool of Time.

THE SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE
(i) The description of the 233 layers opens up immense theoretical and practical possibilities for further research and space-exploration by Astro-physicists.
(ii) The mention of the wheel or whirlpool of time indicates the presence of a spherical dark layer above the 112th लोक loka from the centre of our spherical Mini-Universe.
This is a layer which might be in general absorbing everything and all communications coming to it. Once trapped in this layer, the travelling entity shall possibly keep revolving in this dark spherical alley forever and therefore lost in terms of the time. Only some certain inexplicable entity might be able to cross it.
(iii) The existence of the Paatallok indicates that the behaviour of the Electromagnetic spectrum shall show consistently drastically abruptly decreasing frequency and increased wavelength as we move towards the Paatallok from the layer on which our Earth is located. On the other hand, the behaviour of the Electromagnetic spectrum shall show consistently gradually gently decreasing frequency and increased wavelength as we move towards the Brhmacharyalok from our Earth.

Further research is needed to understand comprehensively the concepts discussed in the instant research paper.
