I will discuss the role of MSSM Higgses in the early universe cosmology. The Higgses below the hidden sector SUSY breaking scale create a mini-landscape of potential spanned by the parameter space of soft SUSY breaking terms and the non-renormalizable operators, which can support primordial inflation at high scales and electroweak symmetry breaking at low scales. The Higgses also seed primordial density fluctuations which are responsible for creating the temperature anisotropy in the cosmic microwave background radiation. The decay of the Higgses excites all the matter we see Today including baryons and dark matter.
