It is recited in almost all Vedic rituals and ceremonies. It is often used during the worship of the Deity of Vishnu or Narayana in the temple, installation and fire ceremonies, or during the daily recitation of Sanskrit literature or for one's meditation. The Purusha Sukta is an important part of the Rig-veda It also appears in the Taittiriya Aranyaka 3.
Content[ edit ] The Purusha Sukta gives a description of the spiritual unity of the universe. It presents the nature of Purusha, or the cosmic being, as both immanent in the manifested world and yet transcendent to it. Purusha[ edit ] The Purusha is defined in verses 2 to 5 of the Sukta.
He is described as a being who pervades everything conscious and unconscious universally. He is poetically depicted as a being with thousand heads, eyes and legs, enveloping not just the earth, but the entire universe from all sides and transcending it by ten fingers length - or transcending in all 10 directions.
All manifestations, in past, present and future, is held to be the Purusha alone. The immanence of the Purusha in manifestation and yet his transcendence of it is similar to the viewpoint held by panentheists.
Finally, his glory is held to be even greater than the portrayal in this Sukta. Creation[ edit ] Verses hold the creation of the Rig Veda. Creation is described to have started with the origination of Virat, or the cosmic body from the Purusha.
In Virat, omnipresent intelligence manifests itself which causes the appearance of diversity. In the verses following, it is held that Purusha through a sacrifice of himself, brings forth the avian, forest-dwelling and domestic animals, the three Vedasthe metres of the mantras. Then follows a verse which states that from his mouth, arms, thighs, feet the four varnas classes are born.
Indra and Agni descend from his mouth and from his vital breath, air is born.
The firmament comes from his navel, the heavens from his head, the earth from his feet and quarters of space from his ears. All forms of existence are held to be grounded in this primordial yajna.
In the seventeenth verse, the concept of Yajna itself is held to have arisen out of this original sacrifice. In the final verses, yajna is extolled as the primordial energy ground for all existence. It seems to be an interpolation into the Rigveda since it is out of character with the other hymns dedicated to nature gods.
They suggest it was interpolated in post-Vedic era  and is a relatively modern origin of Purusha Sukta. I have already observed that the hymns which we find in this collection Purusha Sukta are of very different periods.
It has a decidedly more modern tone, and must have been composed after the Sanskrit language had been refined. It mentions the three seasons in the order of the Vasanta, spring; Grishma, summer; and Sarad, autumn; it contains the only passage in the Rigveda where the four castes are enumerated.
The evidence of language for the modern date of this composition is equally strong. Grishma, for instance, the name for the hot season, does not occur in any other hymn of the Rigveda; and Vasanta also does not belong to the earliest vocabulary of the Vedic poets.The mantras , and of the puruSHa sUktam are in the anushtup meter, whereas the mantras are in the triSHTup].
And from that yagn^ya was born horses, cattle, elephant, goats, sheep, and other animals with two rows of teeth (11).5/5(27).

Purusha sukta/sookta is the only Rigvedic hymn dedicated to the Purusha, and thus, even though appearing in a late book of the Rigveda, the oldest attestation of the Purusha. As a creation hymn, the Suktam is monotheistic and pregnant with philosophical speculations.
