Description

Purusha suktam is hymn 10.90 of the Rigveda, dedicated to the Purusha, the "cosmic man". The Purusha was conceptualised as the primordial existence, transcending all Gods and even the creator.Purusha is described as a primeval gigantic man, and from whose body the world and the varnas (class) are built. He is described as having a thousand heads and a thousand feet. He emanated Viraj, the female creative principle, from which he is reborn in turn before the world was made out of his parts.In the sacrifice of Purusha, the Vedic chants were first created. The horses and cows were born, the Brahmins were made from Purusha's mouth, the Kshatriyas from his arms, the Vaishyas from his thighs, and the Shudras from his feet.[2] The Moon was born from his spirit, the Sun from his eyes, theheavens from his skull. Indra and Agni emerged from his mouth.
