Purusha Sooktham

(Uttaranarayanam truncated due to audioblog's 5 minute restriction).

Purusha Sooktham is a gem found in the Rig Veda. This explains the cosmic creation of the UNIVERSE. Please excuse my voice and mistake in accents (if any).
The meaning can be found here.

Here is a beautiful video presentation of "The Hymn of Creation". However, this one is not derived from Purusha sooktham.

I am listening to this, and while I am listening to this, it would have been good if you had given the translation to this too..onnume puriyala :(

Link to the meaning added duly. But remember, the vyakyanam (interpretation) can be different based on the schools of thought.
Adi Sankara's advaitam or Ramanuja's vishistadvaitam or desikacharya's dvaitam. You decide for yourself.
