Cosmology of Hinduism is more advanced than modern #bhagvatam #bhagvatgita #jambodweep

For many people Bhagvatam or Sri bhagvatgita is only religion of Hindu book, but during Krishna there was no other so called cult religion what we have now since last ~2000 years ago.There was sanatan dharma, religion of truth- called Dharma everywhere. It is Kaliyug that entered after Dwapar gone when Sri Krishna departed from this earth, that made and still making all confusion. And this will carry on untill next Sri Krishna in diff form come.
Here ,I am trying to decode what is written in Bhagvatam about Cosmos,which modern scientist still far away to get even after many satellites and telescope they have.
This is based on Bhaktivedanta Institute scientist Sadaputa Dasa (Dr. Richard Thompson)'s article-"Mysteries of sacred universe".

While there is debate as who was a 9th Avtar of God- Buddha or Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Hindus believe Chaitanya Mhaprabhu was a 9th Avtar of Vishnu.  And per Chaitanya“In every verse of Srimad-Bhagavatam and in every syllable, there are various meanings.”(Chaitanya-charitamrita, Madhya 24.318).
The Fifth Canto of the Srimad-Bhagavatam enumerate many universes. Each universe is like egg  shell surrounded by layers of elemental matter which is a boundary between mundane space and the unlimited spiritual world.
The region within the shell  is called the Brahmanda, or “Brahma egg.” It contains an earth disk or plane—called Bhu-mandala—that divides it into an upper, heavenly half and a subterranean half, filled with water. Bhu-mandala is divided into a series of geographic features, traditionally called dvipas, or “islands,”
varshas, or “regions,” and oceans.The circular “island” of Jambudvipa, lies in  the center of Bhu-mandala ) with nine varsha subdivisions. Subdivisions are known as -Bharata-varsha, which  is India/Bharat . In the center of Jambudvipa stands the cone-shaped Sumeru Mountain, which represents the world axis and is surmounted by the city of Brahma, the universal creator.
 Bhu-mandala are a stereographic projection of a globe .The land area between the equator and the mountain arc is Bharata-varsha, corresponding to greater India. Since its purpose was astronomical, rather geographical,so many other countries were not described.
The way it describes earth's is like this-It points out that night prevails diametrically opposite to a point where it is day. Likewise, the sun sets at a point opposite where it rises. Therefore, the Bhagavatam does not present the naive view that the Earth is flat.

In middle ages, astronomical instrument called an astrolabe was used which can be used today to compare Bhu-mandala.On the astrolabe, an off-centered circle represents the orbit of the sun—the ecliptic. The Earth is represented in stereographic projection on a flat plate, called the mater. The ecliptic circle and important stars are represented on another plate, called the rete. Different planetary orbits could likewise be represented by different plates, and these would be seen projected onto the Earth plate when one looks down on the instrument. The Bhagavatam similarly presents the orbits of the sun, the moon, planets, and important stars on a series of planes parallel to Bhu-mandala.
Bhu-mandala as a Map of the Solar System
Descriptions of Bhu-mandala have features that identify it as a model of the solar system.
The scholars Giorgio de Santillana and Hertha von Dechend carried out an intensive study of myths and traditions and concluded that the so-called flat Earth of ancient times originally represented the plane of the ecliptic (the orbit of the sun) and not the Earth on which we stand. In India, the earth of the Puranas has often been taken as literally flat. But the details given in the Bhagavatam show that its cosmology is much more developed.

Bhagavatam used the ecliptic model, and  the disk of Bhu-mandala corresponds to the solar system . The solar system is nearly flat. The sun, the moon, and the five traditionally known planets—Mercury through Saturn—all orbit nearly in the ecliptic plane.Thus Bhu- mandala does refer to something flat, but it’s not the Earth. The structures of Bhu-mandala correspond with the planetary orbits of the solar system  If we compare the rings of Bhu-mandala with the orbits of Mercury, Venus,Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, we find several close alignments that give weight to the hypothesis that Bhu-mandala was deliberately designed as a map of the solar system
Until recent times, astronomers generally underestimated the distance from the earth to the sun. In particular, Claudius Ptolemy, the greatest astronomer of classical antiquity, seriously underestimated the Earth-sun distance and the size of the solar system. It is remarkable, therefore, that the dimensions of Bhu-mandala in the Bhagavatam are consistent with modern data on the size of the sun’s orbit and the solar system as a whole.
Jambudvipa as a Topographical Map of South-Central Asia
Jambudvipa,represents the northern hemisphere of the Earth globe. But the detailed geographic features of Jambudvipa do not match the geography of the northern hemisphere. They do, however, match part of the Earth.
Six horizontal and two vertical mountain chains divide Jambudvipa into nine regions, or varshas . The southernmost region is called Bharata-varsha. Careful study shows that this map corresponds to India plus adjoining areas of south-central Asia. It is easily understandable  as  Bhagavatam assigns many rivers and mountains, like Himalayas  in India to Bharata- varsha. Thus Bharata-varsha represents India. Bhagavatam places the Himalayas to the north of Bharata-varsha in Jambudvipa
A detailed study of Puranic accounts allows the other mountain ranges of Jambudvipa to be identified with mountain ranges in the region north of India. In ancient days, this part of Himalaya mountain was a place which had famous SILD ROAD to business activity between Middle east and India and Europe.The Pamir Mountains can be identified with Mount Meru and Ilavrita-varsha, the square region in the center of Jambudvipa. (Mount Meru does not represent the polar axis in this interpretation.)
Bhu-mandala as a Map of the Celestial Realm of the Devas

Per other Puranas,Bhu-mandala is a map of the celestial realm of the demigods, or devas. Other interpretation could be like this-Bharata-varsha includes the entire Earth globe, while the other eight varshas refer to celestial realms outside the Earth. This is a common understanding in India.
But the simplest explanation for the heavenly features of Jambudvipa is that Bhu-mandala was also intended to represent the realm of the devas. For example-
 India is said to be 72,000 miles (9,000 yojanas) from north to south, or nearly three times the circumference of the Earth. Likewise, the Himalayas are said to be 80,000 miles high. Such unrealistic value is secondary to representation of Jambudvipa as  heavenly realm and part of earth and there is connection between two so it doubles in size.Even modern scientist now believe that there is a parelles world. By siddhis, or mystic perfections, one can take shortcuts across space. This is illustrated by a story from the Bhagavatam in which the mystic yogini Citralekha abducts Aniruddha from his bed in Dvaraka or Dwarika and transports him mystically to a distant city
The  literature is full of stories of parallel worlds. For example, the Mahabharata tells the story of how the Naga princess Ulupi abducted Arjuna while he was bathing in the Ganges River .Ulupi pulled Arjuna down not to the riverbed, as we would expect, but into the kingdom of the Nagas (celestial snakelike beings), which exists in another dimension.
Mystical travel explains how the worlds of the devas are connected with our world. In particular, it explains how Jambudvipa, as a celestial realm of devas, is connected with Jambudvipa as the Earth or part of the Earth. Thus the double model of Jambudvipa makes sense in terms of the Puranic understanding of the siddhis.

The common understanding of physics, the universe, space travel and telescopes is not good. For people like us, there are pictures that illustrate how minuscule our world is compared to the vastness of infinite possibilites. Thanks to technology today, pictures like the ones below explain things in a way that even the most watered down Neil deGrasse Tyson Quote can be proud of. Again, thank you internet gods for bestowing mind-blowing information effectively to the common folk. So let’s begin by checking out the true size of our world.
earth big
The earth is bigger than the Moon, Mercury and Mars.

earth big 2
earth big 3Neptune and Uranus are much bigger
earth big 5Jupiter and Uranus-LARGE,BIG.
earth big 6
The Sun is giant. It is almost perfectly spherical and consists of hot plasma interwoven with magnetic fields.
earth big 7
Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky. With a visual apparent magnitude of −1.46.
earth big 8
Pollux is a star in the northern constellation of Gemini, the Twins. Pollux is the brightest star in the constellation. The distance away from Earth is measured at a distance of about 33.78 light-years .
earth big 9
Arcturus -constellation Boötes is the brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere.fourth brightest star in the night sky
earth big 10
Rigel is the brightest star in the constellation Orion and the seventh brightest star in the night sky. Aldebaran is an orange giant star located about 65 light years away in the zodiac constellation of Taurus, its brightest star.
earth big 11
Our Sun is now barely visible.

This exercise is a reality check for those moments when thoughts are streaming about frustrations, anger, disappointment, drama or worry of any kind. Think of the size and scope of everything you just saw and know that there is much more in this world to explore. More thoughts to be had. More experience to participate with. The doors that open to a new world are symbolic of the human mind, which fights to limit the thought process to create a productive organism.
As such, it is imperative that time is taken once in awhile to look up, focus on the Skype and tell the mind that ‘NO’, there is actually more to this world than the route to work, the trash to be thrown away and the new dress that is 50% off. There is so much more that it requires the simplified down nature of articles like this to accurately explain as much to the masses.

The Nasadiya sutra verses are dedicated to origin of universe.
Modern science tells that Universe is expanding and contracting periodically and this was also said millions of years ago in Rigveda.
Nasadiya Suktam  - 7 verses- 
1-नास॑दासी॒न्नो सदा॑सीत्त॒दानी॒म् नासी॒द्रजो॒ नो व्यो॑मा प॒रो यत्।
किमाव॑रीव॒: कुह॒ कस्य॒ शर्म॒न्नंभ॒: किमा॑सी॒द्गह॑नं गभी॒रम्॥१॥
nāsa̍dāsī̱nno sadā̍sītta̱dānī̱m nāsī̱drajo̱ no vyo̍mā pa̱ro yat |
kimāva̍rīva̱ḥ kuha̱ kasya̱ śarma̱nnaṁbha̱ḥ kimā̍sī̱dgaha̍naṁ gabhī̱ram ||1||
 Neither existence nor nonexistence was thereNeither matter nor space around
What covered it, where it was and who protected?
Why, that plasma, all pervading, deep and profound?
2 न मृ॒त्युरा॑सीद॒मृतं॒ न तर्हि॒ न रात्र्या॒ अह्न॑ आसीत्प्रके॒तः।
आनी॑दवा॒तं स्व॒धया॒ तदेकं॒ तस्मा॑द्धा॒न्यन्न प॒रः किञ्च॒नास॑॥२॥
na mṛ̱tyurā̍sīda̱mṛta̱ṁ na tarhi̱ na rātryā̱ ahna̍ āasītprake̱taḥ |
ānī̍davā̱taṁ sva̱dhayā̱ tadekaṁ̱ tasmā̍ddhā̱nyanna pa̱raḥ kiñca̱nāsa̍ ||2||
 Neither death nor immortality was thereAnd there was neither day nor night
But for that breathless one breathing on its own
There was nothing else, surely nothing
3 तम॑ आसी॒त्तम॑सा गू॒ळ्हमग्रे॑ऽप्रके॒तं स॑लि॒लं सर्व॑मा इ॒दं।
तु॒च्छ्येना॒भ्वपि॑हितं॒ यदासी॒त्तप॑स॒स्तन्म॑हि॒ना जा॑य॒तैकं॑॥ ३॥

tu̱cchyenā̱bhvapi̍hitaṁ̱ yadāsī̱ttapa̍sa̱stanma̍hi̱nā jā̍ya̱taika̍ṁ || 3 ||
 It was darkness concealed in darknessAnd an uninterrupted continuum of fluid
Out came in material form and shape
That one lying deep inside, on its own intent.
4 काम॒स्तदग्रे॒ सम॑वर्त॒ताधि॒ मन॑सो॒ रेत॑: प्रथ॒मं यदासी॑त्।
स॒तो बन्धु॒मस॑ति॒ निर॑विन्दन् हृ॒दि प्र॒तीष्या॑ क॒वयो॑ मनी॒षा॥४॥

sa̱to bandhu̱masa̍ti̱ nira̍vindan hṛ̱di pra̱tīṣyā̍ ka̱vayo̍ manī̱ṣā ||4||
 In the cosmic mind, all pervadingDesire, the primal seed made its first appearance
And the wise men, seeking deep in their heart
Could see the link between ‘that is’ and ‘that is not’.
5, ति॒र॒श्चीनो॒ वित॑तो र॒श्मिरे॑षाम॒धः स्वि॑दा॒सी ३ दु॒परि॑ स्विदासी ३ त्।
रे॒तो॒धा आ॑सन्महि॒मान॑ आसन्त्स्व॒धा आ॒वस्ता॒त्प्रय॑तिः प॒रस्ता॑त्॥५॥

re̱to̱dhā āa̍sanmahi̱māna̍ āasantsva̱dhā ā̱vastā̱tpraya̍tiḥ pa̱rastā̍t ||5||
 Reins of the link, a grid of crisscross lines,Holds all the seeds and mighty forces,
Microcosmic forces within
And macro forces out above.
6. को अ॒द्धा वे॑द॒ क इ॒ह प्र वो॑च॒त्कुत॒ आजा॑ता॒ कुत॑ इ॒यं विसृ॑ष्टिः।
अ॒र्वाग्दे॒वा अ॒स्य वि॒सर्ज॑ने॒नाथा॒ को वे॑द॒ यत॑ आब॒भूव॑॥६॥

a̱rvāgde̱vā a̱sya vi̱sarja̍ne̱nāthā̱ ko ve̍da̱ yata̍ āaba̱bhūva̍ ||6 ||
 Who really knows, who can declareWhen it started or where from?

And where will the creation end?
Seekers and sought entered later –
And so who knows when all this manifested?
7. इ॒यं विसृ॑ष्टि॒र्यत॑ आब॒भूव॒ यदि॑ वा द॒धे यदि॑ वा॒ न।
यो अ॒स्याध्य॑क्षः पर॒मे व्यो॑म॒न्त्सो अ॒ङ्ग वे॑द॒ यदि॑ वा॒ न वेद॑॥ ७॥
i̱yaṁ visṛ̍ṣṭi̱ryata̍ āaba̱bhūva̱ yadi̍ vā da̱dhe yadi̍ vā̱ na |
yo a̱syādhya̍kṣaḥ para̱me vyo̍ma̱ntso a̱ṅga ve̍da̱ yadi̍ vā̱ na veda̍ || 7 ||
 That one, out of which the creation cameMay hold the reins or not,
Perceiving all from above, That one alone
Knows the beginning – may not know too.

In its noble simplicity, in the loftiness of its philosophic vision it is possibly the most admirable bit of philosophy of olden times. .. .. .. No translation can ever do justice to the beauty of the original." - Paul Deussen (Ref. 5, pp 119 & 126)
Although modern universe do not know where is original energy, Ancient Indian scripture name is TAPA, a subtle energy.

Time SequenceCosmologyRig Veda
Beginning of timeThere is no physics. Theory cannot account for conditions existing or not existingNeither existence nor nonexistence was there; Neither matter nor space was there;(1st two lines of 1st Verse)
10-32 seconds after Big BangThe inflationary mode ends, having made the universe smooth and almost homogenous. Matter, anti-matter, and radiation are a bubbling opaque stewAnd an uninterrupted continuum of fluid.(2nd line of 3rd Verse)
10-4 seconds after big bangUniverse expands. Matter and anti-matter annihilate each other. There is slightly more matter and this excess comprises the matter in the universe today forming galaxies.Out came in material form and shape That One lying deep inside, on its own intent(Last 2 lines of 3rdVerse)
It can be seen that the modern science is saying the same thing what Rig Veda declared earlier.
Rig Veda's sixth verse, says that who will know and how it started because all came after that.There was unified force and gravity is part of that force which breaks away. Veda makes it clear that by resultant product you can not know the real force behind it.Modern scientist like  Robert Jastrow (internationally known astronomer and authority on life in cosmos; founder and director of NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies), in his book “God and the Astronomers”. The essence of the mathematical calculations and scientific observations in to the galaxies is: The universe has a beginning – that it began at a certain moment in time, under circumstances that seem to make it impossible – jot just now, but ever – to find out what force or forces brought the world into being at that moment.  THIS IS CLEAR CUT COPY OF NASADIYA SUTRA , ancient Rigveda Slok.The famous British theorist, Edward Milne, wrote a mathematical treatise on relativity and he concluded by saying: “As to the first cause of the universe, in the context of expansion, that is left to the reader to insert, but our picture is incomplete without Him.”
Veda also says that this creation and its ending is a repetitive cycle.So evenSteven  Hawking is wrong when he explains destruction or burst of universe.
 Cosmology limits its search and research to material universe only. Is molecule simply a sum of its atoms? Ca n we define an atom as only a group of electrons and protons? Man is not a bundle of flesh and bones only?  Herbert Reeves, the famous astrophysicist, after discussing about the primordial force of Big Bang and subsequent distinct forces like gravity, asks a relevant question: “Did not the universe, somewhere, aim at achieving self-awareness through the creation of human mind?” (His article in Figaro-Magazine of February 1983) The answer is available in Rig Veda for all thinkers of all ages. The answer does not limit human beings only, but extends to all animate and inanimate worlds. Cosmic mind and primordial desire appeared on the scene. Desire entered the mind. Seeds and forces, we know and will know are manifested. These ‘seeds’ for germination (also procreation) and the ‘forces’ to keep all matter into cohesive shapes, spread throughout to transform into macro and micro worlds.
The cosmic mind is also mentioned as Prajapati in other Suktas. In Satapatha Brahmana (6-1-1-8) it is stated – “prajaapati rakaamayata”, meaning Prajapati desired. Cosmic mind desired and it happened. Same is the case in the microcosmic world of human body. We desire, act and incidents take place.
The last verse is more profound in its meaning. That One, the “author” of all events should know the beginning. Veda says That One also may not know! That breathless One is breathing on its own. The beginning of universe, its expansion, demise and re-emergence – entire process is like involuntary inhaling and exhaling. If someone puts a question to any other one, when did you start that particular inhalation, the obvious answer will be – I do not know. It is a continuous process of which I hardly take notice of. The process is a continuum. Beginning and end are relevant to us, parts and parcels of universe. We float and sink in the ocean of time but not that continuous flow of events or its “author”.

Consciousness, is a form of  energy, that focused thought (with intent) can achieve extraordinary things.  
Swami Vivekanada had told Nikola Tesla that the "emptiness" of empty space is in fact not empty, but a great ocean of seething energy!  This included the empty space within the atom in which electrons zoomed around. 

Thers is connection between mind wave ebergy and deep scalar wave that carry signal ti interseller spaces.

Breathing in and out and gap in between is a dark waiting period before new eruption of existance.
The whole cosmos is interconnected in this field and speed is NOT restricted to speed of light.  Both "Time" and "Space" exist within the realm of our all pervading consciousness .Wright said by Captain Ajit VADKAIYL.

Vedanta has told MILLIONS YEARS AGOo that  origin comes from one singular Bramha.

Tvasta , the double helix coiled serpents ( DNA ) which cannot be destroyed- is mentioned in Rig Veda of millions of years ago.

What is in the macrocosm is in this microcosm.

As per Vedanta we are essentially holographic energy beings existing in a state of resonance with the scalar field of the cosmos. 

None of the quantum scientists have categorized Vedanta as a religious work. They have perused and found that it is a subtle mathematical or scientific analysis.  .

Vedanta and Quantum Mechanics describe the same subject but quantum still sort of getting point.
The space between the electrons , which gave free energy to the perpetual motion of the electrons , which prevent them from falling into the nucleus, is called Akasha as per Vedanta . The electrons, protons and neutrons are only a small part of the atom.  It is the space between them that is, the “substance.”  

Vedanta has told millions of years ago that matter is not condensed substance but a diffused form of energy—and this is what Einstein proved it too.

The Bible says that the universe is only thousands of years old. While Vedanta and the modern quantum theory agrees that it is around 14 billion years.  It is amazing that the timeless Vedic tradition remains relevant and easily expressible in terms of contemporary scientific concepts.

'Om Isha vasyam idam sarvam, yat kincha jagatyam jagat'
"All this- whatever exists in this changing universe, is pervaded by consciousness" 
-Isa Upanishad- 5000 BC
"Om purnamadah purnamidam purnaat purnamudachyate,
  purnasya purnamadaya purnamevaavashishyate"

"That  (consciousness) is full (perfect) ; this (the manifest universe of matter; of names and forms being maya) is full.  This fullness has been projected from that fullness.  When this fullness merges in that fullness,  all that remains is fullness."
-Isa Upanishad

Above video :  Space has an energy density of 1094 grams per cubic centimeter. so it is not “vacuum” or the “quantum vacuum” because it is not empty. 
Everything is energy. Einstein expressed an understanding of this truth in his famous theorem E=MC^2, which established the interchangeability of matter and energy. and he said that "We have been all wrong. What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter."  
This quote is from Vedanta which clearly stated Maya, the illusion often mistaken for reality. 
As Science,is advancing, it is going closer to Vedanta like multidimensional space and basis of modern theory of relativity.
Gita says "The  is pervaded by me. ands I am in it and It is in me.From me the world is born, in me it exists, in me it dissolves."  It could be understood if consciousness in Akasha could be understood.
Following is video helps to see ehat is inside you.

Consciousness creates energy, it creates matter, and it creates the perspectives of space and time.
Scalar waves ( by Nikola Tesla ) is the point of fundamental intersection where matter and consciousness influence each other . 
 ‘Yato va imani bhutani jayante; yena jatani jivanti; yatprayantyabhisamvishantiti; tadvijijnasasva; tadbrahmeti”.
Know That from which all beings originate, emerge; That in which all beings rest; and That into which all beings finally merge - That is Brahman. Taittiriya Upanishad  (3.1.1) >5000 BC
The Upanishads are not philosophy but are darshanas, “something seen” and to be realized.
mayā tatam idaṁ sarvaṁ, jagad avyakta-mūrtinā
mat-sthāni sarva-bhūtāni, na cāhaṁ teṣv avasthitaḥ

“By Me, in My unmanifested form, this entire universe is pervaded.
All beings are in Me,  but I am not in them.” Bhagawat Gita (9.4) 4000 BC

When Swami Vivekananda met Nikola Tesla , in Chicago in 1893, and introduced him to the wisdom of ancient Vedas, or akasha ( ether )-the all pervasive sky of quantum energy of the universe .

You can imagine vastness of Universe by thi- Our solar system and the milky way galaxy is just one of several billion in the universe. The speed of light is 186000 miles per second. This means light travels 6 trillion miles in one year. Our own galaxy is 60000 light years from edge to edge, and several light years thick.  

Light from the nearest star Alpha Centauri takes 4.27 light years to  reach the earth. The Bible says that the universe is only thousands of years old. While Vedanta and the modern quantum theory agrees that it is around 15 billion years.  
Vedanta Universe is more than Quantum rules dictate that every action has a multitude of reaction possibilities. Vedas tell us
that empty space is not empty at all. It is a plenum, containing zero point energy..  
Consciousness ->energy ->matter->Forces of attraction ->particles to come together,form nuclei with electrons orbiting around them giving the illusion of matter.
There is DNA  remains unchanged for >4 billion years.And body has 125 billion miles of DNA, which is 500 billion trips around the earth.

The Hindu is not asked to blindly follow a practice or a belief. He is expected to rely on his conscience in the absence of single holy books, middlemen with a hot line to God and single messiahs.

it is possibly the most admirable bit of philosophy of olden times. .. .. .. No translation can ever do justice to the beauty of the original." - Paul Deussen (Ref. 5, pp 119 & 126)

Modern science says that this Universe is 13.7 billion years old. By weight, it is 4% of atoms, 23% of dark matter and 73% of dark energy.This is in consonance with the  Na asat na sat concept of Vedas .  It describes zero state or total single black hole concept.  From this state, the next stage of 'ambhas' ( cosmic water ) is formed.
He created these worlds ambhas , marici , mara and apa --Yajurveda- 5000 BC
In the beginning all this was unmanifested. From that emerged the manifested. The Brahman created Itself by Itself. Therefore it is called the self-creator.  Taittiriya Upanishad 5000 BC

 “Sahovaacha yadurdhvam gargi divo yadavaakprithivyaa yadantharaa dyaavaa prithivee
 ime yadbhutam cha bhavacha bhavishyachetyakshata aakaase tadotam cha protam cheti."  

( Maharishi Yajnavalkya telling Gargi ) ---Brihadaranyaka Upanishad (3:8, 4) 5000 BC

“Oh Gargi! The earth along with those which are above and below the earth, the time that is past, present and future, are all in unmanifested space.”     

"Tadejathi tannaijati taddure tadvantike
Tadantarasya sarvasya tadu sarvasyaasya bahyatah," Esavasyopanishad >8000 BC
"It (Self) moves. It moves not. It is far and it is near. It is within all this, and it is outside all this.”
The whole universe is contained in its space and the whole space is contained in its universe.Confusing if not understood from begining.

"Vishtabhyahamidamkrithsnam ekaamsena sthito jagat" ( Bhagawad Gita sloka 42)
"Only one small microscopic part of His (So called GOD) pervades  the whole universe."

The Rgveda has 1028 hymns (suktas) divided into ten mandalas (books). The shortest sukta (hymn) has 1 verse, whereas the longest has 58 verses, and the total number of verses is 10,462.
Purusha sukta is hymn 10.90 of the Rigveda, dedicated to the Purusha, the "Cosmic Being". The Purusha sukta describes unity among all universe, not only earth,human,animals etc.
