The concept of the space-time continuum is one of the most profound and revolutionary ideas in the field of theoretical physics. It lies at the heart of Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity, which has reshaped our understanding of the fundamental structure of the universe. The space-time continuum is a fundamental and groundbreaking idea that has transformed our understanding of the universe. It unifies two seemingly distinct dimensions, space, and time, into a single, interconnected fabric that underlies the very nature of reality. This concept was famously introduced by Albert Einstein in his theory of general relativity, and it has since become a cornerstone of modern physics. This study provided critical analysis of the theory of Relativity and its exposure in Vedic literature. The relationship between space and time is a fundamental concept in modern physics, particularly in Einstein’s theory of relativity. This concept, known as the space-time continuum, has revolutionized our understanding of the physical universe. Surprisingly, there are intriguing parallels between the ancient Vedic literature, specifically the Srimad Bhagavata MahaPurana, and the modern scientific understanding of the space-time continuum. In this exploration, we will delve into these connections and elucidate the profound insights offered by Vedic texts regarding the interplay between matter and time. While these ideas are deeply philosophical and rooted in ancient cosmology, they offer a unique perspective on the nature of the material world and its relationship with time.
