Vedas Mention Purusha As the Source

ASK BVKS | May 21, 2011 |



If Krishna is the source of all incarnations why include him in the list of incarnations in the first place? And why does Bhagavata say that in the “beginning” Purusha form was there? In fact Vedas use the word “Purusha” to signify the Godhead. In the Purusha Sookta (the Creation Hymn) it is said that the Purusha creates this world. We come to know that he is Vishnu since it is mentioned that Laskhmi is his consort (hreeshcha te lakshmeeshcha patnyau). Why don’t Vedas say Krishna is the root, and Radha is his consort? Why “Purusha” and his consort is “Lakshmi”?
