Puruṣa Sūktam. Purusha Sūkta (puruṣasūkta) is hymn 10.90 of the Rig-Veda, dedicated to the Purusha, the "Cosmic Being" or "Soul". The Purusha Sūkta 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. From this being, the Sūkta holds, the original creative will proceeds which causes the projection of the universe in space and time.
