It is predicted that at the end of the Kali Yuga, Lord Shiva shall destroy the universe and all the physical body would undergo a great transformation. After such dissolution, Lord Brahma would recreate the universe and mankind will become the 'Beings of Truth' once again.
I have to disagree with this quote
Tantric Hinduism talks about escaping death. For example, Sivananda in his 'Kundalini Yoga" states this."It is said that when all 12 aditayas scorch the world with their burning rays, he would through his Apas Dharma reach up to the akasa. When fierce gales arise splintering rocks' he would be in the akasa through Agni Dharma. When the world with maha meru are under water, he would float through them with his Vayu Dharma."
Now, if this is so,when the air is burning, where will he escape? It is said that even the heavens of form(including Brahma's heaven) will be destroyed by the major calamaties.Even Lord Brahma cannot escape.
Under the sistem of ignorance, there is no way at all to escape death but under the system of voidness and enlightenment, there is neither birth or death.He who desires to be rid of birth and death, should give up the philosophy of creation and destruction and believe in the philosophy of neither creation nor destruction.
