Lokaloka Mountain

LokalokaMountain is mentioned in Puranas especially Vishnu Purana and Bhagavad Purana. It acts as a boundary between the worlds of humans and gods. Shiv Tantra states that the foot of the LokalokaMountain is the playground of the gods.

Lokaloka is a boundary between the earth and the void space. The world of the gods exists after the void space.
Lokaloka is a region of the gold. The surface shines like a mirror. There are no living beings in this space.
The height and breadth of the mountain is such that the light of sun, polar star and other stars do not penetrate it.
The four corners of the LokalokaMountain are guarded by diggajas named Vrshabha, Puspachuda, Vamaha and Aparajitha.

Guru Gita Quotes

All embodies souls on earth suffer because they labour under various kinds of illusion and delusion. They will not suffer if they adapt their lives to the tenets of dharma as per scriptures.

The Knowledge of Brahman resides in the mouth of the Guru. The disciples get it by devotion to the Guru.
“Gu” Kara means the darkness and “Ru” Kara means the remover of the darkness. On account of the power of removing darkness, the teacher is known by the significant name “Guru”.
The Guru is one who instructs the disciple about attributeless, eternal Brahman, and there by reveals the Brahmanbhava (feeling of being Brahman) in his heart just like one lamp kindles another lamp is the Guru.
