Verse 3 – Puruṣa sūkta

Rishi: Narayana, Chanda: nichrut aarshi anushtup, Devata: Puruṣa

ए॒तावा॑नस्य महि॒मातो॒ ज्यायाँ॑श्च॒ पूरु॑षः ।
पादो॑ स्य॒ विश्वा॑ भू॒तानि॑ त्रि॒पाद॑स्या॒मृतं॑ दि॒वि ।।

etāvān asya mahimāto jyāyām̐ś ca puruṣaḥ |
pādo sya viśvā bhūtāni tripād asyāmṛitaṃ divi ||

etāvān – so much, asya  – of his, mahimā – greatness, atah – also, jyāyān – greater, ca – and,  puruṣaḥ – he, pādah – one quarter, asya – of him, viśvā – all of creation, bhūtāni – all beings past, present and that will be, tripād – three quarters, asya – of his, āmṛitaṃ – immortal, divi – heaven

Literal: So much is his greatness, but this Purusha is greater than even that. One quarter of him is all of creation and all beings past, present and that will be and three quarters of his immortal self are in heaven.

Interpretive: So much is Purusha’s greatness, however this Purusha is even greater. One quarter of Purusha encapsulates all of creation and all beings (past, present and future) whilst three quarters of his immortal self reside in heaven

हिन्दी: परम पुरुष अत्यंत महीमावान है. इस के चरळों में सभी प्राळी है. इस का एक भाग प्रूथ्वी पर है, जिस में सब प्राळी हैं, और तीन भाग स्वर्गलोक में स्थित हैं.

ગુજરાતી: ભુત​, ભ​વિશ્ય અને વર્તમાનકાળ સંબંધિ જે સર્વ જગત છે તે આ પુરુષનો મહિમા છે – આ પુરુષનું સામર્થ્ય જણાવે છે, અને અખિલ જગતથી પણ આ પુરુષ તો મહાન છે. ત્રણે કાળના સર્વ પ્રાણી-પદાર્થો એ તો માત્ર એનો ચતુર્થંશ છે અને એનો ત્રણ ચતુર્થંશ ભાગ જે અમર-નાશરહિત છે, તે અનંત દિવ્ય પ્રદેશમાં વ્યાપેલા છે-પ્રકાશમય સ્વરૂપે છે.

Ralph T.H. Griffith Translation: So mighty in his grandeur; yea, greater than this is Purusha. All creatures are one fourth of him, three fourths eternal life in heaven.
