How the Universe was Created and Our Purpose In It

his book provides answers and details about how the universe is created that are not available in any other traditions, religions, or areas of science. It also provides insights into the spiritual purpose of this creation and what we are really meant to do here.

   Every culture in the world and most religions have their own description of the creation of the universe, from where we came, and what we should do. Unfortunately, these are often short and generalized versions that lack details. Thus, they are often given the same regard as myths. However, there are descriptions that give more elaborate explanations of how the cosmic creation fully manifested, which are found in the ancient Vedic texts and Puranas of India, some of the oldest spiritual writings on the planet. These descriptions provide details and answers that other versions leave out. Furthermore, these Vedic descriptions often agree, and sometimes disagree, with the modern scientific theories of creation, and offer some factors that science has yet to consider.

    Now, with this book, one of the first to ever elaborate on the Vedic version of the universal creation, we can get a clearer understanding of how this universe appears, what is its real purpose, from where we really came, how we fit into the plan for the universe, and if there is a way out  of here. Some of the topics included are:

        Conditions in the spiritual world before the material manifestation.

        How the Supreme Being exists before and after the material creation.

        The ultimate foundation and cause of the universe is based on compassion of the Supreme.

        How the agitation of the modes of nature cause the appearance of time.

        Detailed descriptions of the dawn of creation and how the material energy developed and caused the formation of the cosmos.

        The Vedic description of the evolutionary development of the various forms of life.

        Manifestation and purpose of the Vedic literature, the blueprints of the cosmos and life within.

        Deep insights into the primal questions of, “Who am I? Why am I here? Where have I come from? What is the purpose of this universe and my life? Why the creation exists?”

        What is the primary source of the material as well as spiritual elements.

        The many incarnations and expansions of the Supreme Being in the material creation.

        How everything is but an expansion of the Absolute, and much more.

    This book will provide some of the most profound insights into these questions and topics. It will also give any theist more information and understanding about how the universe is indeed a creation of God.

    To add some adventure, there is also a special travel section to the holy places of northern India, and to some of the locations that are directly connected to the Indian legends of the universal creation and ancient history. With this tour is included rare descriptions and over 70 photographs of temples, Deities, ancient holy sites, the Himalayas, along with sages and people of the region.
