Please accept my humble obeisance. All glories to Srila Prabhupada,
It is nicely described here in the website about the 14 Loka / planetary system based on the Srimad Bhagavatam.
There it is decribed that, the Sun and the Moon are in the Higher Planetary system,
On every planet, even in the higher planetary systems, including the moon and the sun, as well as on this earth, the same principles of animal life exist.
1. My questions is that, Are these two higher and Lower planetary system with respect to the Earth itself? i.e, 7 are above the earth and 7 are below the earth?
If so, will someone clarify me the fact that, the Earth is moving round the sun. So the Sun is sometimes above the earth and sometimes below the earth. So How the Sun can be always above the Earth?
2. Is a Loka (say Bhuvarloka or Svaloka) is expanded horizontally or like a circle in the universe? If it is expanded like a circle, then it could be possible for a Higher Loka to be below the Earth at certain point of time?
3. Below these lower planets by 30,000 yojanas, Se?a Naga is lying on the Garbhodaka Ocean. That ocean is 249,800,000 yojanas deep.
Is the Occean is in the universe itself, means the occean is flying in the universe? Or this occean is in a Planet?
Actually I feel very hard time to understand this so when reading it raised in my mind.
I am sorry and please forgive me if I have put a wrong question.
Just your Servant
