Day or Last Judgment or End of the World is the day God will judge all
the people of the earth for their deeds.
destruction of the earth comes from the Sermon of the Seven Suns taken
VII, VII, 62
. According to the sermon delivered by the Buddha nothing is permanent.
Consequently a time will come when it will not rain and all vegetation
will die. Later the second sun will appear and all streams and ponds
will dry up. After many years a third sun will appear and all the rivers
will dry up. Later and after many years a fourth sun will appear and the
great lakes will dry up. After many more years a fifth sun will appear
and dry up the oceans. After many more years a sixth sun will appear and
heat up the earth to the point of explosion. Lastly a seventh sun will
appear and the earth will explode and burst into flames and disappear.
childhood experience with Judgment Day is enough for me to disbelieve
all metaphysical Judgment Day speculations. I was about 7 years old and
doing some chores for my mother when someone came and told us that the
world was coming to an end. My life was just beginning and I couldn’t
help but cry. Later it occurred to me that some of these speculations
should be kept away from children. However
the world didn’t end and it is not going to end in my lifetime and not
in your lifetime. The truth is that no one really knows but the
Buddha’s idea sounds likely. The
earth might actually heat up in a billion years from now. The
metaphysical speculations like those of Christianity and Islam are not
likely to happen because of several reasons:
Speculations: “Judgment Day” is a cultural idea so no cultural God
is qualified to judge the world. I think the idea borders on
2. 2. Cultural Gods protect their own people. The writers did not consider the fact that other cultures also have their own cultural Gods. Thus if a cultural God descends from the heavens to judge the world he would first go past the Gods of other cultures. In short there would be a war of the Gods if such a thing ever happens.
3. Unconditional Love: The Universe loves us without conditions and no cultural God can take that away from anyone.
4. Freedom of Choice: It is your freedom to believe or to disbelieve and no cultural God can infringe on your freedom!
I know many believers pray for
their beliefs to manifest in the world like a cultural God descending
from the heavens and judging all creatures so that they can say “I
told you to repent and you did not listen”. A better prayer is for
LOVE to descend from the heavens and save all of us from unnecessary
suffering. Do it tonight and change the world!
