AUM. The thousand-headed Purusha, thousand-eyed, thousand-footed, even He, encompassing the Universe on all sides, remained over ten fingers in extent. Purusha alone is all this, that which has been and that which is to be. He is the Guardian of Immortality, and hence shows Himself as the cosmos evolving by means of nourishment. Of this magnitude is He is greatness. Even greater than his is Purusha. One-fourth of Him emanates all created things. The Immortal three-fourths are in the spaces beyond.
One God sits hidden in every creature, pervading all, the Inmost Self of all beings, the Watcher over all acts, abiding in all things, the Witness, the Heart, the Absolute, attributeless and free.
The One Dweller, Self-controlled, who divided the One Seed into the Many, who is their Atma — those enlightened beings see Purusha within their Atma. For them alone there is Bliss Eternal, not for others.
That blessing do we crave, so that we may sing for the sake of the Sacrifice, and for the Lord of Sacrifice. May that divine blessing be ours. May that blessing be on all the children of men. May that which is salutary ever sing onwards and upwards. May that blessing be on all bipeds and all quadrupeds! OM, Peace, Peace, Peace!
