内容紹介

This book provides answers and details about the process of creation that are not available in any other traditions, religions, or areas of science. It offers the oldest rendition of the creation and presents insights into the spiritual purpose of it and what we are really meant to do here.
Every culture in the world and most religions have their own descriptions of the creation, and ideas about from where we came and what we should do. Unfortunately, these are often short and generalized versions that lack details. Thus, they are often given no better regard than myths. However, there are descriptions that give more elaborate explanations of how the cosmic creation fully manifested which are found in the ancient Vedic Puranas of India, some of the oldest spiritual writings on the planet. These descriptions provide the details and answers that other versions leave out. Furthermore, these Vedic descriptions often agree, and sometimes disagree, with the modern scientific theories of creation, and offer some factors that science has yet to consider.
Now, with this book, we can get a clearer understanding of how this universe appears, what is its real purpose, from where we really came, how we fit into the plan for the universe, and if there is a way out of here.
Some of the many topics included are:
Comparisons between other creation legends.
Detailed descriptions of the dawn of creation and how the material energy developed and caused the formation of the cosmos.
What is the primary source of the material and spiritual elements.
Insights into the primal questions of, “Who am I? Why am I here? Where have I come from? What is the purpose of this universe and my life?”
An alternative description of the evolutionary development of the various forms of life.
Seeing beyond the temporary nature of the material worlds, and more.

This book will provide some of the most profound insights into these questions and topics. It will also give any theist more information and understanding about how the universe is indeed a creation of God.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Really Good Book 2013/6/28
投稿者 Dagger One Bravo - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I bought this book based on another reviewer's trashing of it, more specifically, because of the grounds that the reviewer trashed it on and one can't help but wonder just how much "understanding and reverance" that person has for "ancient Hindu philosophy".... or however they said it. My guess is that if you took that person to task, you'd quickly discover that they don't actually know anything about it beyond a very narrow exoteric knowledge of Hindu mythology and a false, popularized view of Karmic Law.

It's a good book - well-written and lucid and the author does a good job of not trying to rationalize the exoteric text but to instead interpret and expound upon it's true esoteric meaning but when you read this kind of stuff, you have to do it with the understanding that most religious texts, especially those dealing with eastern mysticism, never were intended to be interpreted literally in the first place and none are free from the taint of the men that wrote these things down. So, naturally there will be contradictions and things that just don't seem to add up.

There is a wealth of universal "truth" in Vedic literature but the bulk of it is cloaked in esoteric allegory, much of which you will never really understand, no matter how much someone tries to explain it to you, unless you first understand at least the basic tenets of theosophy and the occult, which most people do not.

So, it's a book worth reading, even if you're a gross materialist just looking for something to roll your eyes and wag your finger at between kneelings at your altar of beakers and microscopes and wave-form oscillators, but what you get out of it will always be restricted, first and foremost, by how much you understand the true nature of the beliefs that underlie it.

Concise and descriptive explanation of how the Universe was created and our purpose in it. I wish I would have read this book decades ago. It explains how the vedic teachings are the source for all other religions. Outstanding reading.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Stephen Knapp reveals conditions in the spiritual world 2001/2/24
投稿者 Midwest Book Review - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
In How The Universe Was Created And Our Purpose In It: The Eastern Answers To The Mysteries Of Life, Stephen Knapp reveals conditions in the spiritual world before the material manifestation; how the Supreme Being exists before and after the material creation; the ultimate foundation and cause of the universe being the compassion of the Supreme Being; how the agitation of the modes of nature cause the appearance of time; detailed descriptions of the dawn of creation and how the material energy developed and caused the formation of the cosmos; the Vedic description of the evolutionary development of the various forms of life; manifestation and purpose of the Vedic literature; profound insights into the primal questions of life; the primary source of material and spiritual elements; the many incarnations and expansions of the Supreme Being in the material creation; and how everything reflects an expansion of the Absolute. How The Universe Was Created And Our Purpose In It is profoundly rewarding reading for students of metaphysics and the Eastern philosophies.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Congratulations to the author 2002/8/29

My congratulations to the author for a well thought out and meticulously researched book. Stephen does what he says he will do, which is to present the Vedic version and all its details of how the world was created. I have read a little about the Vedic description of the universal creation in the Rig Veda and Upanishads. Though it has always intrigued me, it is not a topic that is easy to understand. The author has done a commendable job in putting it all together in a format that's much easier to grasp and follow. This Eastern tradition always had much more information about the creation process than any other culture or spiritual tradition, and is worth looking at. So I especially appreciate the many dozens of quotes or references from the ancient Vedic books and Puranas that the author uses to illustrate the lofty concepts that they contain. Anyone interested in Eastern thought or alternative spiritual views will appreciate this book and the endeavor that was put into it.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Summary of philosophy that explains the creation of universe 2002/3/13
投稿者 SRINIVASA RAO BATCHU - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
The purpose of this book and many of his other books written by Stephen Knapp is to identify our constitutional position as a pure spiritual soul that is superior to material nature. Recognizing our eternal place and working towards to get back there is the esssence and purpose why this universe is created to discipline the rebellious souls. Stephen brings this point forth with clarity out of innumerable references from many scriptures. With his practical experience in practicing bhakti yoga over years helps giving useful practical hints for the souls that are interested in putting this material into use. Like his other works, the content of this book can be best appreciated only when one has open mind and thinks beyond the perception of material senses.
