The Sanskrit word for zero, “shunya”, which means void or empty is derived from the word for growth, combined with the early definition found in the Rig-veda of "lack" or "deficiency." The derivative of the two definitions is Śūnyata, a Buddhist doctrine of "emptiness," or emptying one's mind from impressions and thoughts. Thus Shunyata is an important philosophical concept that explains the concept of creation from nothing to something and back to nothing – as nothing is permanent in life! From this philosophy, we think that a numeral to use in mathematical equations developed.
ZERO was the harbinger of scientific advances in the world – after which scientific progress happened much faster and mathematical concepts driven by the ZERO helped create many technologies that changed the world.
