According to astrology (Jyotisha), there are nine planets (Graha). Brahma created many planets and among all planets, He made only earth (Prithvi) livable for humans. He established life only on earth, not on any other planet. I want to know why only the current planet is chosen for human beings? Is there any related story or reason described in scriptures?

Note that I'm not talking about Lokas, I'm talking about planets i,e Grahas.

    Why life is available only on Mother Earth?... This may not be true.. What u are asking is why only on earth humans live? Both are different questions..

    Different beings have different lokas as their residence. Devas have Devaloka, Nagas have Nagaloka, similarly we have the Bhuloka or the earth.

    Humans live on earth because its given to them as their abode..Just like u live in ur house and ur neighbour in his house similarly different beings are alloted different lokas to live on.. If we go on their lokas or if they come to our lokas there will be chaos.. Also life is there in other lokas too.. Or else do u not consider Devas, Gandharvas, Asuras etc as living beings?

    @Rishabh I'm not the one who said this is scientific speculation. But some users felt this question is scientific speculation. Using Sanskrit terms gives less chance to make it related to Science. Also, not everyone agree Bhuloka is earth. Some believe Bhuloka is entire milky way. Problem is with interpretation. So, i suggest you to add Sanskrit terms and statement "i want answer from Scriptures only" to make this question out of scope of "Scientific speculation".
