Srishti-Sthiti-Laya – A Perspective From Ayurveda And Genetics

Please join us for a Series of Webinars on “Srishti-Sthiti-Laya” jointly brought to you by INDICA and Heritage.

This is the 3rd in this Series where an Eminent Panel of three is in a discussion on “Srishti-Sthiti-Laya” from the “Perspective from Ayurveda and Genetics”.

This Series of Talks is a run up to “GUDIYA SAMBHRAMA – THE TEMPLE FESTIVAL 2024”

Brahma, Vishnu, Maheshwara – the Trimurti in Sanatana Dharma and the Tridevi– Saraswathi, Lakshmi and Parvathi are ever present performing their divine functions – Srishti (creation), Sthiti (preservation) and Laya (dissolution). The three aspects guide the bhakta’s expression of devotion and the expression of that devotion in the arts.

According to Advaita Vedanta, there is a beginning-less and endless cycle of creation, maintenance and dissolution or resolution, called ‘srishti’, ‘sthiti’, and ‘laya’. This is indeed fascinating as it strongly complies with the concept of matter converting into energy and back.

Energy converting into matter is called srishti. In each srishti, or creation, the variety and pattern of objects, the attributes of the bodies and minds and the events and situations have to be fashioned to suit the energy it carries. This is also related to the concept of karma.

Matter in various modes of motion is sthiti. This is the mode of existence that human beings normally refer to. This is the stage of maintenance.

The third stage of this cycle is laya or the stage of resolution. Laya is matter converting into energy. This conversion can be at any level. In-fact, on a large-scale, laya can even attain the form of ‘pralaya’.

Pralaya, often misunderstood as Dooms-Day, is anything but that. It is a part of a never-ending cycle of creation (srishti), maintenance (sthiti) and resolution (laya), which is endless and has no beginning either.
