Lokāloka, aka: Loka-aloka, Lokaloka; 2 Definition(s)
Lokāloka (लोकालोक):—There is a land, all of pure gold (beyond this ocean of pure water) for a space equal to the distance between Mānasottara and Meru. This land is like a mirror; there are no beings here; the reason is, any substance placed on it would at once be converted into gold and nothing can be obtained out of it. No living beings can live there and therefore it is named Lokāloka. This is established always between the Loka and Aloka. The God himself has made this as the boundary of the three Lokas. The rays of the Sun, the Polar Star and all the planets are confined to this sphere; rather passing through its middle, the luminaries shed their lustre on the three Lokas.
Beyond the mountain Lokāloka, is said to lie the pure path leading to Yogeśvara within the egg-shaped ellipsoid formed by the Heaven and Earth. The inner dimension of this ellipsoid is twenty five Koṭi Yoyanas. When this egg becomes unconscious (lifeless), the Sun enters within it in the form of Vairāja. Hence the Sun is called Mārtaṇḍa. He is Hiraṇyagarbha, when He is born from this Golden Egg. (See the Śrīmad-devī-bhāgavatam 8.14)
