Question
sir there is cause for everything in this world.
every result cant be without a cause.then
1.what is the cause of god/brahman as something cant come out of nothing?
2.how it can be eternal?

Answer
Dear Sushant,

All that ever is existence. Existence is not a part, product or property of any object. Existence is an independent principle that pervades the universe. Even if the entire universe is destroyed it will continue to exist.

A pot is there. If it is destroyed it continues to exist in the form of clay. If clay is destroyed it continue to exist in the form of energy. Energy cannot be destroyed. Therefore, existence is eternal.

Another name for existence is Brahman.

Thanks for asking this question. If you need more explanations, you may search the web for 'what is existence' or study ontology. If you have any specific clarifications on this you may post a new question to me.

Best wishes,
Raja Subramaniyan
