Prajapatis

After the initial setbacks, Brahma was more than ever determined to create further. This resulted in the following 10 creations from Brahma’s body and mind –

  1. Marici – from his mind
  2. Atri – from his eyes
  3. Angira – from his mouth
  4. Pulastya – from his ears
  5. Pulaha – from his navel
  6. Kratu – from his hand
  7. Bhrigu – from his touch
  8. Vasistha – from his life-air
  9. Daksha – from his thumb
  10. Narada – from his lap

All of them are also known as the ‘Prajapatis‘.
