TEXT 172

"Just as there are millions of fruits on the udumbara tree, millions of universes float on the waters of the river Viraja.
Viraja is a river that divides the material world from the spiritual world. On one side of the river Viraja is the effulgence of Brahmaloka and innumerable Vaikuntha planets, and on the other side is this material world. It is to be understood that this side of the Viraja River is filled with material planets floating in the Causal Ocean. The name Viraja indicates a marginal position between the spiritual and material worlds, but this Viraja River is not under the control of material energy. Consequently it is devoid of the three gunas.
