This website provides the following translation of the Shlokas from the RigVeda:

"He made this Earth fixed by different devices like hills and mountains in shape of pegs but it still rotates . Sun never sets; all parts of earth are not in Darkness."

"There are suns in all directions, the night sky being full of them."

"There are planets in all directions, but only visible in night sky."

Although, neither does it provide the Shlokas or the references to them. I was wondering if anyone who has gone through the RigVeda can provide me with the original Shlokas.

1 Answer 1


This is partial answer.

First mantra is Rigveda 2.12.2.

यः पर्थिवीं वयथमानामद्रंहद यः पर्वतान परकुपितानरम्णात |
यो अन्तरिक्षं विममे वरीयो यो दयामस्तभ्नात स जनास इन्द्रः ||

yaḥ pṛthivīṃ vyathamānāmadṛṃhad yaḥ parvatān prakupitānaramṇāt | yo antarikṣaṃ vimame varīyo yo dyāmastabhnāt sa janāsa indraḥ ||

Griffith's translation

He who fixed fast and firm the earth that staggered, and set at rest the agitated mountains, Who measured out the air's wide middle region and gave the heaven support, He, men, is Indra.

Translation from Indiascriptures,

He, who fixed firm the moving earth; who tranquillized the incensed mountains; who spread the spacious firmament; who consolidated the heaven; he, men, is Indra. Who Tranquillized the Incensed Mountains-

Yah parvatan prakupitan aramnat; the Scholiast says he quieted the mountains, going hither and thither, as long as they had wings: Indra cut them off.

Regarding second mantra, all blogs and books (from google) say "Sarva Dishanaam, Suryaha, Suryaha, Suryaha" is source of Mantra which i couldn't find in Rigveda.
