THE WISDOM OF THE ANCIENTS

Imagine a thinker thinking deeply on the infinite subject of the Creation of the Universe some 8000 years back in time and what would he be thinking about, what would be the depth of his thoughts. Sitting here in 2009AD it is impossible for most people to even visualize this.

The Rig Vedas a compilation of over a 1000 verses, whose origin can be traced back to the Harappan culture which evidence suggests existed from 6000BC,gives one an insight into the level of intelligence of these ancients, their wisdom and logic which is lacking in most people even in this advanced age, If The Nasadiya Sutka,Rig Veda-10.129 gives us THE ULTIMATE DESCRIPTION OF CREATION,this verse is an astonishing description of the beginning of creation.

Rig Veda CXXX
English Translation- Ralph T.H. Griffith,
1. THE sacrifice drawn out with threads on every side, stretched by a hundred sacred ministers and one,—
This do these Fathers weave who hitherward are come: they sit beside the warp and cry, Weave forth, weave back.
2 The Man extends it and the Man unbinds it: even to this vault of heaven hath he outspun, it.
These pegs are fastened to the seat of worship: they made the Sāma-hymns their weaving shuttles.
3 What were the rule, the order and the model? What were the wooden fender and the butter?
What were the hymn, the chant, the recitation, when to the God all Deities paid worship?
 
4 Closely was Gāyatrī conjoined with Agni, and closely Savitar combined with Usnih.
Brilliant with Ukthas, Soma joined Anustup: Bṛhaspati's voice by Brhati was aided.
 
 5 Virāj adhered to Varuṇa and Mitra: here Triṣṭup day by day was Indra's portion.
Jagatī entered all the Gods together: so by this knowledge men were raised to Ṛṣis.
 
6 So by this knowledge men were raised to Ṛṣis, when ancient sacrifice sprang up, our Fathers.
With the mind's eye I think that I behold them who first performed this sacrificial worship.
7 They who were versed in ritual and metre, in hymns and rules, were the Seven Godlike Ṛṣis.
Viewing the path of those of old, the sages have taken up the reins like chariot-drivers.
