Hymn of Creation (Rig Veda)

In ‘big bang theory’ postulated by modern astronomers, we believe that the Universe apparently began from nothingness.

Everything in the Universe (stars, galaxies, suns, planets & their moons for example,) that we see today began after a ‘big bang’ or ‘explosion’ in ‘nothingness’ say our modern astronomers.

Ancient rishis of Bharatavarsha (ancient land of Bharata) talked about the same thing in ‘Nasadiya Sukta’ in the tenth mandala of Rig Veda (10:129), probably composed in the 9th century BCE.

View and hear the recitation (in Sanskrit language) of ‘Nasadiya Sukta’ at link that follows. The narrative is in the Sanskrit language (video includes English translation of the hymn.)

Ancient rishis of Bharatavarsha (ancient land of Bharata) envisioned and talked about the ‘big bang’ that created the Universe from nothingness… centuries and millennia before modern astronomers of today.
