Summary
In Hind philosophy, The existance of the universe is governed by Bramha(the creator), Vishnu(the sustainor), and Shiva( the destroyer ). At first their was emptiness and their was nothing. Lord Vishnu slept in the coils of a snake. The snake kept him safe and he slept peacefully. Slowly a sound came OM and it filled the emptiness and Lord Vishnu woke up. A magnificent lotus grew from his naval. In that lotus sat Lord Bramha. Bramha split the lotus nto three different parts; the heavens, the earths,and the skys.He also created animals and plants. Hindus believe that the universe was created by one god in three forms. When god creates he is Bramha, when god looks after his creation he is called Vishnu, and when god destroys for a proper balance he is called Shiva

These saints then used this knowledge to teach the people how to do things and these saints passed that knowledge to the people. People learned how to do everything from
cooking to making arrows. These elements of knowledge are called vedhas. Vedhas contain both material and spirtitual aspects of life.
