INDIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Hindu and Buddhist Gods of India...

PURUSHA

Indian Creator God

Very Old Creator God

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.
