Meaning Of Purusha Suktam

The Purusha Sukta

 

सहस्रशीर्षा पुरुषः सहस्राक्षःसहस्रपात् ।

सभूमिं विश्वतो वृत्त्वात्यतिष्ठद्दशाङ्गुलम् ॥ 

 

The Supreme Being hath a thousand heads, a thousand eyes, a thousand feet; pervading the Universe on all sides, He lay beyond it to the extent of ten inches.

 

The whole Universe of existing things animate as well as inanimate is regarded as the body of Purusha - the Supreme Being. Hence the eyes of all living beings are His; their heads, His heads; their feet, His feet. He is thus spoken of as having a thousand eyes, etc. Thousand is here used for Countless by what is called Upalakshana. Upalakshana is defined as the implication of something not expressed, in addition to that which has been expressed. Dashangulam is also used here by way of Upalakshana. All that is meant is that the Supreme Being is something over and above this Universe, which forms only a part of Him.

16008 wives of Lord Krishna

The Lord had 8 principal wives. The others were rescued by the Lord from the captivity of Narakasura. He was the king of Pragjyotishapura. He held 16000 princesses as prisoners. When the Lord rescued them, they requested the Lord to accept them as his wives and protect their dignity.

Why is bhakti the simplest spiritual path?

Bhakti marga is very easy on the mind. You simply have to listen to the greatness of Bhagavan. In Jnana-marga, there are a number of apparently contradictory systems. You will get confused. In Karma-kanda perfection is very important. Achieving perfection is very stressful.
