Origin of Universe

It is amazing to notice how the ancient Hindu theory on origin of universe matches closely to that of the modern versions. The universe is created, destroyed, and re-created in an eternally repetitive series of cycles. This is a metaphorical parallel to the theory of Big Bang - Expansion - Contraction - Big Crunch. ven String Theory finds a place in the Hindu texts. The first thing that ever was and will be is 'Shabda' or sound which is the first sound of Lord Brahma i.e. Om, the origin of all creation.
