How did everything come to be in the universe? This question has intrigued humans from their earliest days. Even today we don’t have all the answers. Many millennia ago, the seers of ancient India contemplated on various aspects of life. They recorded their experiences in the form of poetry. Their collective wisdom forms the Vedas, the foremost Hindu scriptures. Vedic literature is replete with lucid poems and songs of creation that celebrate the joy and wonder of perceiving the cosmos instead of trying to propose a rigid theory or law of creation. For possibly the first time in English, here is a collection of all the major creation poems from the vast canon of Vedic literature. This eminently readable translation, along with extensive notes, gives easy access to these songs from the past for readers everywhere. This is the definitive guide to the Hindu view of Creation.
