Question: You mentioned heavenly beings have subtle bodies. Does it mean their gross body is subtler than earthly body? Or does it mean they have only subtle body of mind, intelligence and false ego? Do they have yuga cycle in upper planetary system or it is applicable only to us?

Jayapatākā Swami: These are two questions. So, they have more subtler body than we do. They can be invisible at their will or they can also appear to us. Now the ghosts have subtle bodies, they don’t have any senses. But those who are inhabitants of the heavenly planets, they have senses. There are different examples for that. Every 71 cycles, Lord Indra interchanges. Manu, Indra change. Every kalpa there are 14 Manus. With every change of Manu has a change of Indra. So, Bali Mahārāja was told he could be the Indra after three Manus. So from that we can understand that the yugas also appear in the higher planets, but the effect is less.
