The ancient Indian seers are not much concerned about creation theory. Though they have formulated a more reasonable theory in Thaitriya Upanishad. The A agamas (meaning journey to the Divinity/Aa divinity, Gama). In India, there is a famous cupid festival which is based on the puranic mythological episode of Lord Siva burning to ashes the Cupid, the deity of sex and vitality. So, an image of the deity cupid has to be created to burn him in the celebration of the festival. The purpose is transcendence from the haunting thought of desire to divinity as well as a inner transformation from sex to super consciousness. So, the celebrities are not concerned in making and beautifying the image of the cupid and a just ordinary simple image is created .So also, the purpose of the seers is to regain the paradise lost. So to say, to establish an identity for the individual self with the divinity. So, a creation basis from divinity to the element earth is needed to retreat the path that is from projection to dissolution. However, the well informed say that there are more than 62 theories of creation each speaking differently. The main texts are mythology, Upanishads, Saiva and sakta agamas and the scientific theories like big bang and so on extending to quantum theory. Abi initio, there are two basic theories about creation. The first negates the creation and says that everything is one only , whatever you see is the Absolute alone; there is none a second what it is said ass second is unreal including Maya. This is known as non creation doctrine.(Ajada Vaatham) The other is doctrine of creation in which are seen including Maya are real and so doer. However, if there is an effect, the cause must be included in the effect and the effect cannot be without a cause (sad Kariya Vaatham) The eternal existence as cause produces different effects and for each one there is a cause. If at all any other thing is to be introduced certain special significance are to be attached to the non real. In this work the author attempts to make a brief review of various creation theories and tries to give a theory acceptable to the prudence logic, good conscience and equity of the common man.
