  • As I. Understant it, there are 3 world's one Material one Suntal/heavenly & then there the eternal Spiritual Sky. And in the eternal realm ",^ everything has self-affolgent-light, as all things there are consist of the external energies "SatChitAnundaVigraha"

    I hope the picture and brahma samhita document shared by Krsna Das ji and the answer given by Rashmi ji answers your query, However I am seeing that you are repeatedly asking about 33 million demi gods....so just wanted to clarify one small thing. You are probably reffering to the 33 koti dev-devi phrase. koti of sanskrit has two different meaning one is crore and another type or class. We over generations have been habituated to consider the wrong meaning of crore whereas the original meaning is of class or type.

    The number 33 comes from the number of demi gods explained by Yajnavalkya in Brhadaranyaka Upanishad – the eight Vasus, the eleven Rudras, the twelve Adityas, Indra and Prajapati. (Chapter I, hymn 9, verse 2)

    I hope it Helps

        See, just as depicted in the picture above, their are innumerable universes each having one set of garba ocean  and brahma. Demigods stays in swarga loka and perform the function under the instruction of their king indra (devraj) who further receives rules and instruction from prajapita brahma of that universe, only brahma can approach the ocean of garbodak not the demigods, only once in srimad bhagbatam its mentioned that all brahmas (from different universe) met and got darshan of Maha vishnu lying in karan ocean (causal ocean). Demi gods couldn't reach garba  ocean, karan ocean then the question of them having sakshatkar with krishna doesn't even arise.

        so how do service takes place. service takes place in anugatya, or under the orders of senior/superior demi gods work under the instruction of their ruler indra, who in turn works under the instruction of Brahma who in turn works under the order of Garba ocean emerging Vishnu who is non different from Mahavishnu who is non different from Vaikuntha Vishnu who is potency of Dwarkadish Krishna, who is potency of Mathuresh Krishna, who is part of supreme purna purushottam parambrahma vrajendra nanadan krishna.

        hope it answers your query.

    Hare Krsna Mataji,


    There are 2 worlds - spiritual world and material world. Material world is approx 1/4 of spiritual world. In the material world, there are various universes (innuemrable actually). Then just imagine how many planets are there in the spiritual world. These are categorised into different categories.

    All 33 crore of demigods are in the material realm mataji. They are not part of the spiritual sky. They are devotees who have been assigned responsibility of taking care of the material world.

    Regarding description of the spiritual world, we rely heavily on Brahma Samhita which has already been sent to you in pdf. Pls go through.

        Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


        So sorry, I confused your name with Vrinda.

        Shiva is not jiva tattva - He is unborn.

        Ram, Nrisimha and other incarnations of God all have their planets in the spiritual sky. Durga is the jailor of the material world (durg).

        Demigods stay in heaven or earth or patala, depending on their assigned duties. Heaven and hell are part of the 14 planetary systems comprising one universe in the material world.

          Take your time and go through this picture (I would suggest to save this pic and view it at 100% to get more detailed and clear view).

          This gives complete illustration about material and spiritual worlds. It might be hard to comprehend that there is a realm above us as splendid as shown but it is what it is, whether we believe it or not. We should always put faith in the revealed scriptures more than our own understanding and intellect.

          I am sure you will have more questions, feel free to ask them.

          All glories to Srila Prabhupad..

          Hare krsna.

    This pdf might help you gain insight into the spiritual world. Maybe not elaborately but will give you some understanding of the eternal world.
