May 30 '17 at 14:51 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @SreeCharan What scripture mentions 8 elephants holding the Earth? Wikipedia says a traditional Sanskrit thesaurus called the Amarakosha mentions eight male elephants and eight female elephants holding the Earth, but I'm not aware of any scriptures which say that.

May 29 '17 at 19:14 comment added Ankit Sharma @KeshavSrinivasan I am sure I have heard it somewhere will try to dig it
May 29 '17 at 16:44 comment added Keshav Srinivasan @AnkitSharma I've never heard of Nandi holding the Earth. But Muslims believe that the Earth is supported on the horns of a bull.

May 29 '17 at 10:08 comment added The Destroyer I can provide scriptural reference for Adi Sesha holding earth. Do you want elephant and turtle story or Adi Sesha part?

May 29 '17 at 9:00 comment added Swami Vishwananda Sankaracharya says all the stories of creation are ''likely stories" to explain the existence of Maya. All the stories are from within the realm of Maya. Pick which one you like. Brahman alone is real. The Mandukya Upanishad (III.15) says: "The creation that has been multifariously set forth with the help of the examples of earth, gold, sparks, etc, is merely by way of generating the idea of (oneness); but there is no multiplicity in any way." - If there is no multiplicity, who supports whom?
