The above sujla yajur samhitha vakyam describes the positions of the stars and
planets in the Universe. In the universe the first layer is the star groups and
then the planets Saturn, Jupiter, mars the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Moon. As the
vedic studies of this branch were taught orally from generation to generation
and practiced accordingly, the date of first documentation is not at all clear.
Tradition says, that 18 Siddhanthas or doctrines on the subject were in
circulation. The “Surya Siddhantha” is claimed to be the oldest and earliest of
all the doctrines. As per the above Siddhantha, we get a pictorial view of the
universe as described below.

                    
The Universe looks like an egg or two bowls placed one over the other with
mouths thus creating a hollow space within. This hollow space is filled with
Maha-Prana, he energy transmitting media, with in that the top most layer is of
the stars in multiple layers followed by seven planets Saturn, Jupiter, Mars,
Sun, Venus, Mecury, Moon and the Earth in the descending order. (Earth is not
accounted being identified with the analyzer). The stellar constellations are in
a (fixed) stationary position at different levels and the planet move in their
own orbits at different levels with the earth at the centre point in a
stationary position revolving on its own axis.  The planets are moving in
North-South and South-North directions having a total displacement of East to
West within the extremes of their respective orbits of longitudes 0°
to 360° .

 

                    
Slokas 29 to 90 section12 of “Surya Siddhantha” deals with the above factors.
While furnishing the order of the planet it gives the details also regarding the
circumference of the universe, the orbits of the planets, as indicated below.
