LIFE IN EARTH
of life in this earth is described in different way in different religious
books. Many of the description about the creation of life in earth is not
sustainable in the light of science now any more. So many people do not want to
believe about the existence of God or their explanation about creation of life
But the creation theory of life in earth according
to Tripuri theory vis-ŕ-vis the Hinduism is sustainable even in the light of
scientific information. Rather the Tripuri theory of creation is scientific and
rational. According to this theory, the almighty God Subrai created this
universe; he is the creator of this earth also. He created the earth, made up of
gaseous and dust particle. It was hot and airy like a fire ball, it remained
this way for millions of years then it cooled gradually, and formed water and
There was nothing in the earth, it remain bared
for millions of years. Then almighty God Subrai alias Siva thought of crating
life in this earth. He first created the tiniest life form in the earth. Then he
formed insects, insect lived in this earth for million of years by eating grass
and then he created animals. The earth in the early life was full of only
animals, there are big birds which are known as Tok baling, which is described
to be like dinosaurs birds. These birds used to eat fruits and spread the seed
from one part of earth to other part, which is how the earth is covered thickly
with trees and jungles.
Then the almighty God Subrai thought of creating
his own replica, so he first created the first man Dangaifa and first woman
Dangaima of the earth. All the human race or Homo sapiens are considered to have
originated from this early man and woman. According to Tripuri philosophy they
are considered as fore fathers of the entire human race. It is stated according
to this mythology that Dangaima and Dangaifa had borne one hundred sons and one
daughter. In the course of time due to different reason 64 sons died
prematurely, only 36 sons survived till old age. These 36 sons had turn by turn
from senior to junior got family life with daughter for two consecutive years
and for all all of them the daughter, their sister produced one son and one
daughter. Later all the children inter alias married each other according do
their choice. Gradually these families became larger and large, intern created
the human race.
One of Dangaifa’s sons name was Mongol, whose
progeny later on speeded all over the world and the race was later known as
Mongoloid group. Tripuri people are branch of this mongoloid race. Early
mongoloid people used to live in the hills and mountain, they all have the
common physical feature, of habits, of food eating habit, of cooking style etc.
and many more.
Now these facts can be corroborated with classical
Hindu philosophy of creation of life and its evolution. That is why we have
Vishnu who took first incarnation as Fish or Matshya Avatar, then as Tortoise or
Kurma Avatar, then as Pig or Varaha Avatar, then as Dwarf or Vaman Avatar.
According to Tripuri belief one has got this life
only after passing through the various life which started as bacteria then
through insects to gradually higher animal like chimpanzee to finally human
being. This is nothing but a scientific explanation of evolution of human being,
ditto as of Tripuri explanation.
Scientifically we know, this earth is created out
of the sun, sun is nothing but a gaseous fire ball. The whole of universe is
nothing but creation from energy, which changed to physical form of gas,
gradually cooled down to solidify and finally earth and water. Life was first
created in this water, first one celled life form, then multi cellular form.
Form this evolved to different kind of fish, then amphibian, then mammals, then
chimpanzee, then humanoid like Neanderthal man and finally human being. This
scientific fact is totally in consonant with the Tripuri theory of life creation
in earth as well as the Avatar of Vishnu.
That is why it can be said that the Tripuri
philosophy vis-ŕ-vis Hindu philosophy is scientific one. Unlike many other
religion which are not tenable to the scientific challenges of modern days.
