Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Devasarga (देवसर्ग) or Sāttvikasarga or Ūrdhvasrotas refers to the “divine creation” (creation of divine beings) and represents the third of the nine classes of cosmic creation (sarga), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.1.15:—“[...] realising that it was not an aspirant (sādhaka) I began to ponder over the matter. Then the Sāttvikasarga otherwise known as Ūrdhvasrotas and Devasarga (divine creation) took shape. It was really charming. But considering that it too was not aspirant I meditated on my lord. [...] I cannot adequately describe the divisions and sub-divisions of all these types of creation (eg., Devasarga). [...]”.
