There is a programming consciousness which has an existence even beyond the trees of consciousness, known as ParaBrahma. The term ParaBrahma, literally means – the one beyond Brahma.
The singularity ParaBrahma is the source of infinite Paurusham. Paurusham is the consciousness-energy or the computing-power to program and maintain sub systems. It is from him every Brahma derives the energy to program his sub-nodes and Samsaara. We had discussed earlier that each tree of universe and it’s root is Brahma, who represents, manages and animates the Samsaara of that tree.
This singularity manifests in a unique Samsaara called Vaikuntha, which is connected to every created Samsaaras of their respective Brahmas. The form of ParaBrahman within the Samsaara of Vaikuntha, is known as Naaraayana.
Aspects of ParaBrahma – Trimurti, the Supreme entities
Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are the Supreme entities of Samsaara as per the eternal order.
Brahma represents aspect of creation of conscious universes. Within a created Samsaara, Brahma is the root node and creator of every other node
Shiva, is the aspect of ParaBrahma, which schedules lifespans of created Universes and entities within it. He destroys Universes and sub-entities who have reached their scheduled expiry. It is Shiva who creates the illusion of time and lifespans in Samsaara, and is hence known as MahaKaal (the Great Time) . Please note that although from a physical point of view, Space precedes Time, from consciousness point of view, the feeling of passage of time should precede (and is precursor to) the illusion of space and movement within it.
Vishnu, represents the neutral nature of ParaBrahma, and balances creation and destruction to preserve each Samsaara, by making it work efficiently within the energy of will allotted to it.
A Note on Gender of terms
For the programming consciousness, male and female are only parameters within Samsaara. We nonetheless, still use a “him” to refer that supreme self. The reason is – from a human perspective, male gender represents information-completeness of genome. This is by the virtue of males having both X and Y chromosomes. The nearest subsets of higher nodes are represented as female deities.
