11. Pointing at the head he said, “This, indeed, is the Vaishvanara Pre-eminence;”—pointing at the eyes he said, “This, indeed, is the Vaishvanara of Soma’s splendour;”—pointing at the nostrils he said, “This, indeed, is the Vaishvanara of divers courses;”—pointing at the space in the mouth he said, “This, indeed, is the Vaishvanara Plenteous;”—pointing at the water in the mouth he said, “This, indeed, is the Vaishvanara Wealth;”—pointing at the chin he said, “This, indeed, is the Vaishvanara Foundation.” This Agni Vaishvanara is no other than the Purusha; and, verily, whosoever thus knows that Agni Vaishvanara as Purusha-like, as established within the Purusha, repels death, and attains all life; and, verily, Vaishvanara does no harm to him that speaks of him.
