nAsadEya sUktam - The Song Of Creation

The Truth in Veda shines at its best when we read the Naasadeeya Sooktam. The acknowledgement of "the unexplicable" is very ardently brought out after giving thorough insights on the earliest perception of Creation.

But, after all, who knows, and who can say
Whence it all came, and how creation happened?
The gods themselves are later than creation,
so who knows truly whence it has arisen?

Whence all creation had its origin,
he, whether he fashioned it or whether he did not,
he, who surveys it all from highest heaven,
he knows - or maybe even he does not know.


-Excerpts from Naasadeeya Sooktam Rg Veda 10th Mandala, 129th Suukta. By A. L. Basham.

A Must Read commentary.

Vishy,

I,
Effort to explains yet maintaining the truth should not be considered vague. Atleast the suktam was well translated. Afree?

No. It is made up. I sported that attitude. But never did that. Infact we had a good rapport long after that too. He had two wives and I never disclosed it to anyone till now. He always treated me well. I was in the school team in all the sports because of our friendship and surely not because of the talent. I have had fights with him but no tension was carried to the next day.
Btw who are you?
Rajesh
