Prajāpatiloka (प्रजापतिलोक) refers to the world of Prājāpatya and represents a division of the divine creation (daivasarga or ūrdhvasarga) according to the Sāṃkhyakārikā. The daivasarga is one of the three types of elemental creation, also known as bhautikasarga.
The Sāṃkhyakārikā by Iśvarakṛṣṇa is the earliest extant text of the Sāṃkhya school of philosophy and dates from the 4th century CE. It contains 72 Sanskrit verses and contents include epistemology and the theory of causation.
Samkhya (सांख्य, Sāṃkhya) is a dualistic school of Hindu philosophy (astika) and is closeley related to the Yoga school. Samkhya philosophy accepts three pramanas (‘proofs’) only as valid means of gaining knowledge. Another important concept is their theory of evolution, revolving around prakriti (matter) and purusha (consciousness).
