It is the only religion in which time scales correspond to those of modern scientific cosmology. Hinduism Among the collected hymns of the Rigveda (which may date from bc and probably constitute the earliest known book in the world), there is a “Song of Creation.” “Death was not there,” it states, “nor was there aught immortal.”.

The Hindu conception of the deity as culminating in Rāmānuja, by Bharatan Kumarappa. In Hindu Vedic religion there is only one Supreme God which exist at two different levels of reality.
