WEEK 2: RIG VEDA CREATION OF MAN; PP. 29 – 31

The Creation of Man was much more simple to read yet quite interesting like the Creation. Within this hymn, there is much more certainty about the creation of everything around us and what we see. It tells us that the world was created by a sacrifice which led to the creation of the world. One thing that really calls my attention is how the higher the body part is on the body, the higher the class is. For example, the head became the brahmin while the feet turned into the servants. It was so interesting to see the author use graphic and descriptive language discussing how each body part was ripped apart and created the caste system, animals, and the Earth. This hymn was way more straightforward and insightful about the beliefs during that age.
