Q: difference between Purusha and Kalapurusha ?

Post by TheMirror » Thu Apr 16, 2015 7:39 am

Hi,

Some questions to ved. Philosophy, Astrology keep me busy since several weeks.
It is about the Purusha -> Kalapurusha and the tattvas of the Purusha.

What is actually the difference between the Purusha and the Kalapurusha ?
What I found out so far is that the Kalapurusha is basically the cosmic-man. Its head beginning in Aries.
But is this the same as the purusha ?

Do the 15 or 36 tattvas have a meaning in ved. Astrology ?

best regards,
Mirror

Dear TheMirror
The word is actually (KALA + PURUSHA ).
KALA means TIME.So kalapurusha only represent time .
With regards

Astrologically yours.

Purusha is eternal and unbound by nature where as Kalapurusha is limited by time. Purusha cannot be known when he is limited by nature, so mind cannot know Purusha but you can identify its changes through Time and nature (prakriti).

As far as I understand now, the Kala Purusha and the Vastu Purusha came out of the Purusha (~Maha Vishnu).
Mythology says that the universe was created by Maha Vishnu which fell asleep. But what was the reason why he fell
asleep ?
