            Hinduism is a broad polytheistic religion that contains several different ideas, values, beliefs, and philosophies. The ultimate canonical authority for all Hindus is the Vedas. The Vedas are called shruti and stems from the inner spiritual experience of the ancient seers. There are four Vedas, namely Rgveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda, and Atharvaveda. Each Veda consists of sections namely Samhita (containing the hymns) and Brahmana (significance of the hymns), Aranyakas (interpretations), and Vedanta (Upanishads, which are metaphysical dialogs). The oldest of the four Vedas is the Rig-Veda, which was composed in an ancient form of the sanskrit language, in northwest India. Hinduism has many different reasons why God created the universe. There are three different accounts of creation from the Hindu perspective; let us study each of them in detail. .
             Rgveda, Manus-Smrti, Brhadaranyaka Upanisad and Chandogya Upanisad .
             In the Rgveda and the Chandogya Upanisad, creation begins to take place through the negation of non-being. Hindu Creation Hymn starts out telling us about before the distinction between being and non-being, stating that there was no space, sky, or beyond that. In Manu-Smrti, the creator god Brahma creates the world form the egg. They believed that there was darkness in the beginning; with no distinguishing sign, all this was water. He, desiring, seeking to produce various creatures from his own body, first created the waters, and deposited in them a seed. This (seed) became a golden egg, glorious as the sun, in which he himself was born as Brahma, the progenitor of all worlds. The waters are called Nara, because they are the offspring of Nara; and since they were formerly the place of his movement or ayana, he is therefore called Narayana. He then divided the egg into two halves; he formed heaven and earth, between them the middle sphere, the eight points of the horizon, and the eternal abode of the waters.
