Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
Bhūtāni (भूतानि).—Three-fold movements; naimittika, prākṛtika, and ātyantika; naimittika is Brahmā; in the dissolution of creatures lies the natural destruction of all beings; ātyantika is due to knowledge, not as a result of action; from these Brahmā again begins the work of creation after he wakes up from his sleep; during his sleep there is no continuous rain; rivers are with little or no waters; the sun's seven rays scorch the earth and draw away even the little water; everything is burnt down; no trees or plants; the heat penetrates the pātāla and the vāyu lokas; all the worlds are burnt down; everywhere is to be seen one flame of fire; then set in clouds in different hues and in different shapes, pour down rains and appease the fire which enters into waters, resulting in the condition of ekārṇava out of which emerges Brahmā, the first progenitor and puruṣa; the seven sages see him; then, are gradually born all the kings one by one; similarly sages, men, gods and other things.*
- * Brahmāṇḍa-purāṇa IV. 1. 128 to 207.
