Adiyen happened to read Vaikuntha Gadyam of Bhagavad Sri RamAnujAcharyAr, wherein it is mentioned that the divine abode is full of gardens, precious stones, flowers, water springs, amusement halls, and even kalpaka taru, etc.
Adiyen wonders what the need is for all these paraphernalia when we get the sight of the supreme lord himself along with his Devis there.
Or do these exist because our minds will still not be fully fixed on Bhagawan and all Devis even after reaching the divine abode?
Or these descriptions (including jivAtmAs bearing conch and discus with four arms, etc.) are just a way to bring in that desire to reach Vaikuntham? Otherwise, don’t the descriptions look very similar to the paradise of Semitic religions?
For instance, why ‘kalpaka taru’ in a place where all our desires and wishes must cease to exist?
