The Infinite Cycle of Life


I found this picture while doing some research into the Bhagavad Gita, a section in the much larger epic, The Mahabrata. The story takes place on the eve of a grand battle for control of some unnamed area of India. Our main protagonist, Arjun, is a warrior in the upcoming conflict, and is pondering the morality of engaging in combat with his fellow Indians and even relatives.  Its there that the Lord Krishna, comes to the aid of our troubled warrior. Krishna is the holiest of holy forms of Visnu, the supreme God in the Hindu religion. Krishna appears before Arjun and soothes him with the comforting words that basically help him realize that death is a door. Arjun is told that he shouldn't worry about killing his relatives, friends, or neighbors, because sending them to the afterlife, would just hurry them to nirvana. He'd actually be doing them a favor by helping them break the cycle of death and rebirth, and reach that divine state. Krishna punctuates his point, but showing Arjun his divine form, free of the human facade he puts up. Arjun is taken aback by the utterly magnificent, and godly sight before him, and is almost brought to tears...

I bring this up because of the picture features the infinite loop of the life cycle of human. I just love how the old man falls limp at the last stage and is brought through the other side as a child...from the hands of the reaper, to the arms of the young maiden.... beautiful.. Until next time guys!

  3. Too bad this isn't how the cycle of life actually works. "It is appointed unto a man once to die and after that the judgment."
