Dandavats to all vaisnavas,
I have 2 questions regarding to Brahmajyoti.
1. Our original position?
In Srimad Bhagavatam 10.12.33 purport, there is the description about the origin of the souls;
"Kṛṣṇa is the full effulgence, and every living being is "part and parcel of that effulgence". As proved here, "the effulgence in every living being is individual". "
Once Srila Prabhupada denied the idea that spirit souls' original are Brahmajyoti.
This idea was mentioned by his god-brother,Narayana Maharaja.
But in other sources from Bhagavatam class, Srila Prabhupada mentioned that fallen souls in the material world came from the Vaikuntaloka.
Srila Prabhupada – “We have also come down from Vaikuntha some millions and millions of years ago.” – (Lecture on Bhagavad-gita on August 6, 1973)
So, how should I understand this contradiction? Please help me out from this ignorance.
2. Does Brahma-jyoti has conscious?
Regarding to my first question the above, If every living being is part and parcel of that effulgence, then it seems like the Brahma-jyoti has conscious.
Moreover, Brahmajyoti which is the exterrnal, impersonal effulgence from Krsna spreads unlimitedly.
And Krsna has full conscious to His whole creation.
So, my second question is that does Brahmajyoti has conscious?
There is a part of siloka mentioning that Brahma is pure conscious": "prajñānam brahma"（Aitreya Upanishad 3.1.3）.
So far as I understand, "impersonal" means "no conscious" like material energy which is turned from
Brahmajyoti by Krsna's will.
Could anyone solve my poor understanding about Brahmajyoti, please?
All glories to Srila Prabhupada. ＼(^_^)／
