Jul 20, 07:30 AM

In this episode, we hear where the Nasadiya Sukta from the Rig Veda connects with the beginning of the universe.

In the distant past most people accepted their religion's explanation of how the universe began. As the world became more interested in science in the 18th and 19th centuries, however, religion alone couldn't always explain the new discoveries being made. In the 1920s, the Big Bang Theory was proposed as a possible scientific explanation for the creation of the universe.
