Description

Different cosmological concepts of the ancient Hindus have been compared with various theories of modern astro-physics on the origin of the universe, viz.big-bang theory and the theory of pulsating universe. Original Sanskrit texts relating to these problems are extensively quoted from e.g. the Vedas, the Upanishads and Puranas.

The book deals with the origin of the concept of Brahma, the Upanishadic, post-Vedic, Buddhist and Jaina, epic and Puranic concepts of Brahma, and the iconography of Brahma. It also has an appendix.
