Presented at the BIHS Workshop “Models and memes and maps: A modern journey through ancient cosmography” (November 21-22, 2020)


In this investigation, we are considering some questions related to the vertical dimension of the Puranic universe and, in particular, the interpretations of its measurements. The work is based on purports of Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada on the Fifth Canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam, Vaishnava Acaryas’ Commentaries on the Fifth Canto by Danavir Goswami, cosmology books by Richard L. Thompson (Sadaputa), and the work of Bhaktisvarupa Damodara Goswami.
