PURUSHA

Very Old Creator God and later an [AVATAR] of [VISHNU].

He has put himself about a bit. His eye is the Sun, his breath the Wind, his head the Sky... and other his bits are everything there is or ever has been.

He did all this chopping and changing by making great sacrifices of himself. If he ever decides upon reassembly the world will end.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Purusha graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Purusha movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Purusha statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Purusha. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
