Here the transcendent totality of .
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.
Kamesvara Aiyar, another 19th-century scholar, on the other hand, disputed this idea:  The language of this hymn is particularly sweet, rhythmical and polished and this has led to its being regarded as the product of a later age when the capabilities of the language had been developed.
But the polish may be due to the artistic skill of the particular author, to the nature of the subject and to several other causes than mere posteriority in time.
We might as well say that Chaucer must have lived centuries after Gower, because the language of the former is so refined and that of the latter, so rugged. We must at the same time confess that we are unable to discover any distinct linguistic peculiarity in the hymn which will stamp it as of a later origin. Modern scholarship[ edit ] The verses about social estates in the Purusha Sukta are considered to belong to the latest layer of the Rigveda by scholars such as V.
Nagarajan, Jamison and Brereton. Nagarajan believes that it was an "interpolation" to give "divine sanction" to an unequal division in society that was in existence at the time of its composition.
The Purusha is indeed All this Creation in essence; That which existed in the Past , and that which will exist in the Future , 2.
Everything i. The Purusha is Greater than all the Greatness which can be expressed by words , 3. There , in the Creation, He pervades all the Living who eats and the Non-Living who does not eat beings.
From Him i. Spring was created as the clarified Butter of that Yagna , Summer was created as the Fuel of that Yagna , and Autumn was created as the Havis Sacrificial offering of that Yagna.
These Rishis were not human but divine Rishis like Saptarshis created directly by Virat. From the Complete Offering of His i. Virat was born the Horses , and all those animals who has teeth in both jaws , Virat was born the Cows , and from Him was born all types of Goats. What did the Purusha i. Virat hold within Him? How many parts were assigned in His Huge Form?
