The Bhagavad Gita mentions: “Everywhere are His hands and feet, eyes, head and faces. His ears are also everywhere, for He permeates everything in the universe.” This literally means that God is omnipresent, even in the metaverse. Yes, you read correctly.
Metaverse is a multidimensional world set up using AR (Augmented Reality) and VR (Virtual Reality) that can be accessed from multiple types of devices. It gives you a 360-degree experience of a place, an environment, and its interactivity will make you feel like you’re right there. This is a boon in the digital revolution that will change the concept of virtual reality forever. You will enjoy all the privileges and experience the divinity without being present. That’s the magic of the metaverse, which has room for everyone. Even religion & belief.
Metaverse is also the future of religion. Religious sites have also been closed for darshan as the world shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. Millions of believers urged, demanded, and even raised their voices against the decision to ban temple attendance. If Metaverse had been big during the Covid period, people would have had the opportunity to visit any temple, mosque, church or place of faith with just a simple click. In the Metaverse, staying in touch with your Almighty requires no hurdles like permits or long queues, not even a lack of money, time, or health.
Metaverse has a solution for followers around the world. Since places of worship exist on the internet, all you need is a device with a good internet speed. With just one click you can enter the virtual space of any sacred place or worship to offer your prayers and feel the divinity in an immersive way.
