The energy making up everything in the cosmos we see today was squeezed inside an inconceivably small space – far tinier than a grain of sand, or even an atom. Then, this unimaginably hot and dense cauldron – for whatever reason – ballooned at a terrifying rate and lead to the formation of universe14. Ayurveda the science of treatment and well being talks about concepts of human body, diagnoses, treatment in quotation and in detail. It is not just the school of medicine but also gave the scientific concepts like the origin of universe (srishti) mentioned by acharyas, the distance between the earth and sun as mentioned in Hanuman chaalisa1. When the modern science was not knowing evolution ayurvedic acharays gave these concepts. Many references are there in ayurveda regarding the evolution major one being Samudra Manthan which was done by the good and the evil souls leading to the production of everything present on earth and the Srishti utpatti karma (process of evolution) mentioned by Acharyas. Creation of universe from a single giant particle via process of big bang theory has been told likewise in Vedas reference of creation of universe from a single source called the golden egg is there. The concept of evolution at that time was given in quotation form having deeper meaning that has not been understood completely by us and hence only the modern concept of creation of universe is known to all. So here an attempt has been made to study and elaborate different concept of creation/evolution of universe (srishti utpatti) as mentioned by Acharyas to unfold there deeper meaning.
