Bráhman, Big Bang & the Creation of the Universe

Scientists all over the world are trying to resolve the mystery of the origin of the universe. Most prominent theory of the origin of the universe is the "Big Bang" theory. But all such theories state that all this universe is matter only which exploded with a "Big Bang" & is always expanding.

In Hinduism also origin of the universe is told but there is some difference than the "Big Bang" theory. As per Hinduism, God or Brahman (ब्रह्मन् bráhman) is the one supreme, universal Spirit that is the origin of this universe. In that aspect God or Brahman is also referred to as the Absolute or Godhead which is the Divine Ground of all Creation.

As per Hinduism God created this universe out of "Zero" or nothing. Sometimes God himself in the un-manifest aspect is called "Zero" & Vedas tell us that "In the beginning was "Zero" or nothing & out of un-manifest aspect of God, came everything." Before the universe came into being, God in His un-manifest aspect was there & then He willed to create this universe. That "Zero" substance to which our Vedas call "God" is the source of Consciousness as well as Un-Conscious matter. He is also the source of Mind & Intellect. From this un-manifest aspect of God, on His will, He created this universe.

It is due to the WILL of GOD that whole creation takes place out of "un-manifest aspect" of God. God in His un-manifest aspect just willed & hence the energies required to form this universe sprang out of "Brahman (ब्रह्मन् bráhman)". "Big Bang" was started with the Will of God & also guided by His Super Intelligence. By just God's willing, Material Energies came into being which in turn created this vast infinite Space & later on out of Space came out the Air, Fire, Water & Earth. Unless until we consider & have faith in God with all His powers & His super Intelligence, we cannot appreciate the reality & truth about "Big Bang".

Below in simple words is defined Brahman (ब्रह्मन् bráhman):

God is called Bráhman,
Whole world dwells in Bráhman,
Whole world comes from Bráhman,
Whole world goes back in Bráhman,
Whole world breathes in Bráhman,
Let's worship that Bráhman, the God.

As per Vedas, Brahman is of the nature of truth, knowledge and infinity. Brahman is the source and ground of all things.

Below are some verses from Bhagwat Gita which describe the Brahman (ब्रह्मन् bráhman):

"prakritim svam avastabhya
visrijami punah punah
bhuta-gramam imam krtsnam
avasam prakriter vasat" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Nine verse 8)

"Sri Krishna said: The whole cosmic order is under Me. Under My will it is automatically manifested again and again, and under My will it is annihilated at the end."

"maya tatam idam sarvam
jagad avyakta-murtina
mat-sthani sarva-bhutani
na chaham tesv avasthitah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Nine verse 4)

"Sri Krishna said: By Me, in My unmanifested form, this entire universe is pervaded. All beings are in Me, but I am not in them."

"athakasa-sthito nityam
vayuh sarvatra-go mahan
tatha sarvani bhutani
mat-sthanity upadharaya" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Nine verse 6)

"Sri Krishna said: Understand that as the mighty wind, blowing everywhere, rests always in the sky, all created beings rest in Me."

"yac chapi sarva-bhutanam
bijam tad aham arjuna
na tad asti vina yat syan
maya bhutam characharam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 39)

"Sri Krishna said: Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being—moving or nonmoving—that can exist without Me."

So let's have faith in the God who is also called Brahman (ब्रह्मन् bráhman), who in essence is of the nature of truth, knowledge and infinity & who is the source and ground of all things. Unless we know that God who created this universe out of His will & guided by His Super Intelligence, we in truth cannot understand the truth about "Big Bang".

Jai Shri Krishna

    Radhasoami Faith View of Modus Operandi of Creation of Universe

    Part – I

    There is cosmological evidence for God and the Universe existed before
    Big Bang please.
    Stephen Hawking writes in The Grand Design, “It is not necessary to
    invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the Universe going.”
    Hawking said the Big Bang was merely the consequence of the law of
    gravity. In A Brief History of Time, Hawking had suggested that the
    idea of God or a divine being was not necessarily incompatible with a
    scientific understanding of the Universe.
    Although Hawking is very close to Truth yet he is not perfect in his
    views while discarding the role of divine being. I consider the role
    of eternal gravity uppermost but I strongly differ with Hawking on the
    role of divine being. I consider Divine Ordainment is the cause of
    Creation of Universe.
    Now I give Radhasoami Faith view of Creation Theory. In Sar Bachan
    (Poetry) composed by His Holiness Soamiji Maharaj the August Founder
    of Radhasoami Faith the details of creation and dissolution has been
    described very scientifically. It is written in Jeth Mahina (name of
    Hindi moth) in this Holy Book: Only He Himself (Supreme Father)and
    none else was there. There issued forth a great current of
    spirituality, love and grace (In scientific terminology we may call
    this current as gravitational wave). This is called His Mauj (Divine
    Ordainment). This was the first manifestation of Supreme Being. This
    Divine Ordainment brought into being three regions, viz., Agam, Alakh,
    and Satnam of eternal bliss. Then a current emerged with a powerful
    sound (this was the first Big Bang). It brought forth the creation of
    seven Surats or currents of various shades and colours (in scientific
    terminology we may call it electromagnetic waves). Here the true Jaman
    or coagulant was given (in scientific terminology this coagulant may
    be called as weak nuclear force and strong nuclear force). Surats,
    among themselves, brought the creation into being.
    These currents descended down further and brought the whole
    universe/multi verse into being i.e. black holes, galaxies etc. were
    I would like to add further that sound energy and gravitational force
    current are non polar entity and electromagnetic force is bi-polar.
    Hence spiritual polarization, if occurred, is occurred in the region
    of Sat Lok and region below to it only.
    Infinite expanse of gravitational force field is the region of dark energy.

    In Bible it is written that in the beginning was the Word; the Word
    was with God; and the Word was God.
    According to Radhasoami Faith “Shabd (Word) is the beginning and end
    of all. The three loks (worlds) and the fourth Lok, all have been
    created by Shabd.” (Sar Bachan Poetry)

    Here the true Jaman (coagulant) was given. The spirituality coagulated
    as it were, and Surats (spirit entities), among themselves, brought
    the creation into being. Thereafter, another Jaman (coagulant) was
    given. Regions from Agam Lok (Inaccessible Region) to Sat Lok (True
    Region) were created during the first creational process. That
    creation is true. That region is eternal. There is no trace of evil
    and suffering. This was the creation for many Yugas and ages. Then
    there appeared a dark coloured current
    That current appeared like a dark coloured stone set in a white one
    and was absorbed in the Darshan of True Being. Then there appeared two
    Kalas i.e. currents (viz. Niranjan and Jyoti) and they together
    evolved the creation of five Tattwas (elements) four Khans (species,
    categories of life) and three Gunas (qualities). The three Gunas
    (qualities) brought about the expansion and proliferation . They
    created Rishis and Munis (sages and holy men), gods and godly human
    beings and demons. Egotism then increased much. Niranjan separated
    himself from the rest, putting the burden of looking after the
    creation on them. Nobody could know of Niranjan. Even the Vedas
    referred to Him as Neti Neti (Not this, Not this). They did not get
    Darshan (Vision) of Niranjan. They made conjectures. Then how can
    anybody have knowledge of Sat Purush (True Being), Source of Niranjan
    and all that exists.
    Scientifically here Jyoti represent three Fundamental Forces of
    Quantum Mechanics i.e. electromagnetic force, weak nuclear force and
    strong nuclear force. NIRANJAN is the fourth Fundamental Force i.e.
    Gravitation Force. Scientific explanation follows in support of my

    Part III
    Einstein struggled and failed to formulate this theory, but it has
    already been shown that at high enough energies electromagnetism and
    the weak force are the same force known as the electroweak force. It
    is theorized that if energies are increased even further and neutrinos
    acquire mass, which has now been fully documented, all the known
    forces will reduce to the same force thus providing the basis for the
    Grand Unified Theory. This high energy level existed only during the
    very early expansion of the Universe known as the Planck Epoch which
    existed up to 10 to the negative 43rd seconds after the Big Bang where
    the four fundamental forces – electromagnetism, weak nuclear force,
    strong nuclear force and gravitation – all had the same strength.
    After that point the energy level decreased and gravity separated from
    the other 3 fundamental forces and with condensation of elementary
    particles (quarks, leptons, and gauge bosons) into matter formed the
    so-called Standard Model of today’s Universe. (Source: Comments by
    William H. Depperman posted at blog

    It is well known that nothing or very little is known about
    gravitational force till today. It is a mysterious force.
