Might we ourselves be the aliens ! Diksha Mataji (Gita Daily)

Published on Jul 28, 2013

Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 15, Text 07

The possibility of aliens coming to the earth fascinates the contemporary imagination: “Can we encounter life-forms from other parts of the cosmos?” Science fiction regularly glamorizes this possibility, whereas science normally dismisses it.

Gita wisdom offers us an unexpected third perspective. It acknowledges the existence of extra-terrestrial life forms, but then reverses our alien-finder scope by raising the question: “Might we ourselves be the aliens here?”This question might seem outlandish because we are accustomed to think of ourselves as our material bodies whose entire existence is wedded to the earth. We tend to presume, “We belong to the earth, or, more precisely, the earth belongs to us.”
