    Cosmology is defined as the study of the origin, purpose, structure and functioning of the universe. Vedic cosmology gives a vast amount of information about not only the structure of the phenomenal universe as we see it, but also a clear idea of the source of the manifested universe, its purpose, and the subtle laws that govern its operation.

    Mahavishnu lying on the Causal Ocean

    The fundamental concept that pervades Vedic cosmology is the relation and dependence that everything has upon the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna; the source of creation, maintenance and dissolution of the manifested worlds. Although Sri Krishna is the ultimate cause of all other causes, His existence is beyond the material energy and He Himself takes no direct part in these activities, but indirectly controls the universe through his delegated expansions and empowered agents in the form of various incarnations and demigods.

    Pervading the entire science of Vedic cosmology is the understanding that the universe is created and maintained by personal activity. This means that behind all apparently mechanistic laws and events there is one or more persons who enact and administer the laws, and control all universal events.

    Accepting a Supreme controller is central to entering into an understanding of Vedic cosmology. As such, proper comprehension of the subject requires that one first accept that as human beings we have very limited sensual faculties with which to examine the universe, meaning that we can never gain a complete picture of the universe by our own sensual and intellectual faculties alone.

    From the Vedas and especially the Vedic cosmology, we can receive information from beyond our sensory plane or awareness, that describes the hierarchy of beings within the universe, leading ultimately to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna. Most importantly, we get information of how we can successfully interact with the universe to live a peaceful and progressive life in this world, while gradually elevating our consciousness to the spiritual plane.

    As Krsna states in the Bhagavad-gita,

    A person in full consciousness of Me, knowing Me to be the ultimate beneficiary of all sacrifices and austerities, the Supreme Lord of all planets and demigods, and the benefactor and well-wisher of all living entities, attains peace from the pangs of material miseries.
    Thus, human society can take the greatest benefit from appreciating and understanding this instruction and molding their life around it. As such, Vedic cosmology is not merely an attempt to understand the world around us, rather it is the process by which we understand both the world, our place within it, and the relationship between ourselves, this world and the Supreme source of all, from Whom all other energies are emanating.

    How do we know it is 'knowledge' if we don't know where you cut and paste it from?!

    Please think logically.

    It is not unreasonable to ask what your source is.

    To cut and paste something and then say it is not important where you got it from is a nonsense, and is more a reflection on your own brain cell count.

    When you read a magazine or a newspaper, do you always take note of the author?

    You do not.

    Sparrow stop it, and make sincere enquiry instead........OK

    If i want to verify the authorship of a newspaper article, it's there to be seen.

    My sincere enquiry to you. If you can cut and paste a lump of text, why can you not cut and paste who wrote it or where you got it from?

    I say it now and will say it again: NEVER TRUST A HUMAN TO TELL ONE ABOUT SPIRITUALITY. That includes you. If a deity want's to talk to me personally I would give THOSE words much weight but not from light weight humans such as yourself.

    Tell me this: Why would your so-called deity have written down these words and that is the end of it? I see no deity today. Why would that be do you think? I gather your so-called deity cares little for the misfortunes of mankind just like the biblical BS god. 100 million die in WW2 and no deity came in to even say that is not a good thing. So much for your beloved deities.

    Cosmology doesn't study the "purpose" of the Universe.
