Rigved Mandal 10 Sukta 90 Mantra 1

Sahasrsheersha PurushH sahasrakshH sahasrpaat
Sa bhumiM vishwatoM vritwatyatishthatdashangulam (1)

Sahasrsheersha – PurushaH – sahasrakshH – sahasrpaat - sa – bhumim - vishwatH – vritwa – atyatishthat - dashangulam

Translation: (PurushH) Viraat-form Kaal God i.e. Kshar Purush (sahasrsheersha) who has thousand hands (sahasrakshH) who has thousand eyes (sahasrpaat') thousand feet (sa) that Kaal (bhumim') the twenty-one brahmands of the Earth (vishwatH) from all sides (dashangulam') with the ten fingers i.e. by fully controlling (vritwa) by encircling them (atyatishthat') is also situated above this i.e. lives separately in his Kaal lok in the twenty-first brahmand.

Translation: The Viraat-form Kaal God i.e. Kshar Purush, who has thousand heads, thousand eyes, thousand feet, that Kaal encircling the twenty-one brahmands of the Earth from all sides with the ten fingers i.e. fully controlling them, is also situated above this i.e. lives separately in his separate lok in the twenty-first brahmand.

Meaning: - In this Mantra, there is description of Viraat (Kaal- Brahm). [In Gita, Adhyay 10 –11 also, there is a similar description of this Kaal-Brahm. In Adhyay 11 Mantra 46, Arjun is saying that oh Sahasrbaahu i.e one with thousand arms, you may appear in your chaturbhuj form/four-armed form.]

One who has thousand hands, feet, thousand eyes and ears etc., that Viraat (huge) form Kaal God, keeping all those who are under him in his full control i.e. blocking the 20 brahmands by encircling them, is himself sitting above them (separately) in the 21st brahmand.

Rigved Mandal 10 Sukta 90 Mantra 2

Purush evedM sarvM yad bhootM yachch bhaavyam
Utaamrtatvasyeshaano yadannenaatirohti (2)

Purush – ev – idam - sarvam - yat - bhootam - yat - ch - bhaavyam
- ut – amrtatvasya – ishaanH – yat¢ - annen – atirohti

Translation: (Ev) similarly, he who is somewhat (Purush) God, he is Akshar Purush i.e. ParBrahm (ch) and (idam') he (yat') who (bhootam') has taken birth (yat') who (bhaavyam') will be born in the future (sarvam') all (yat') by effort i.e. hardwork (annen) through food grain (atirohti) develops. This Akshar Purush also (ut) doubtful (amrtatvasya) of salvation (ishaanH) is master; which means that, even Akshar Purush is somewhat God, but is not a giver of complete liberation.

Translation: Similarly he, who is somewhat God, is Akshar Purush i.e. ParBrahm. And he who has taken birth or who will be born in the future, all develop through foodgrain by effort i.e. hardwork. This Akshar Purush also is a doubtful master of salvation; which means that, even Akshar Purush is somewhat God, but is not a giver of complete liberation.

Meaning: - In this Mantra, there is description of ParBrahm (Akshar Purush) who is equipped with some of the qualities of God. But by worshipping him also, one cannot achieve complete salvation (mukti). Therefore, he is called as doubtful giver of salvation. He is said to have some qualities of God because, like Kaal, he does not eat after roasting on tapatshila. But in this ParBrahm’s lok also, living beings have to work hard and are paid according to their actions (karmas). And the bodies of the living beings develop with food grain only. Although, the time period of birth and death is more than that of Kaal’s (Kshar Purush’s) lok, but reproduction, destruction and the sufferings in the lives of 84 lakh species of life are inevitable.

Rigved Mandal 10 Sukta 90 Mantra 3

Etavansya mahimaato jyaayaanshch PurushH 
Paadoasya vishwa bhootani tripaadasyaamrtM divi (3)

Etavan - asya – mahima – atH – jyaayaan - ch – PurushH – paadH – asya – vishwa – bhootani – tri – paad - asya – amrtam - divi

Translation: (Asya) this Akshar Purush i.e. ParBrahm has (etavan') only this much (mahima) supremacy (ch) and (PurushH) that Param Akshar Brahm i.e. Purna Brahm / Parmeshwar (atH) than him (jyaayaan) is greater (vishwa) all (bhootani) Kshar Purush, Akshar Purush and all the living beings in their loks and in Satyalok (asya) of this Purna Parmatma / Param Akshar Purush (paadH) are one foot i.e. are just a small part of Him (asya) this Parmeshwar’s (tri) three (divi) divine loks like, Satyalok – Alakh lok – Agam lok (amrtam') eternal (paad') are the other foot i.e. whosoever has originated in all the brahmands is a part or organ of SatyaPurush / Purna Parmatma only.

Translation: This Akshar Purush i.e. ParBrahm has this much supremacy. And that Param Akshar Brahm i.e. Purna Brahm / Parmeshwar is greater than him. All, Kshar Purush, Akshar Purush and all the living beings in their loks and in Satyalok, are one foot of this Purna Parmatma Param Akshar Purush i.e. are just a small part of Him. This Parmeshwar’s three divine loks like, Satyalok – Alakh lok – Agam lok, are His other eternal foot i.e. whosoever has originated in all the brahmands is a part or organ of SatyaPurush / Purna Parmatma only.

Meaning: - Akshar Purush (ParBrahm) mentioned in the Mantra 2 above has only this much grandeur. But the Supreme God, Kavir Dev is greater than him i.e is All-Powerful/Almighty, and all the brahmands are positioned only at a part of His. In this Mantra, there is description of three loks because the fourth Anami lok dates back before all other creation. There is description of these three Gods (Kshar Purush, Akshar Purush and other than these two, Param Akshar Purush) in Shrimad'bhagwat Gita Adhyay 15 Shlok 16 – 17.

{Respected Garib Das Ji gives the same evidence in his speech: -

Garib, jaake ardh room par sakal pasaara, aisa Puram Brahm hamaara.
Garib anant koti brahmand ka, ek rati nahin bhaar |
Satguru Purush Kabir hain, kul ke sirjan haar ||

In its evidence, Respected Dadu Ji is saying: -

Jin moku nij naam diya, soi satguru hamaar |
Dadu doosra koi nahin, Kabir sirjanhaar ||

Respected Nanak Ji gives its evidence: -

Yak arj guftam pesh to dar gos koon Kartaar |
Hakka Kabir karim Tu beaeb Parvardigaar ||

(Shri Guru Granth Sahib; Page no. 721, Mehla 1, Raag Tilang)

The meaning of ‘koon Kartaar’ is ‘the Creator of all with word power’ i.e. Shabd Swaroopi God who does creation by the power of word/ shabd, ‘Hakka Kabir’ means ‘Sat (eternal) Kabir’, ‘karim’ means ‘kind’, ‘Parvardigaar’ means ‘Nurturer of all’}.

Rigved Mandal 10 Sukta 90 Mantra 4

Tripaadoordhv udaitPurushH paadoasyehaabhavtpunH 
Tato vishv vykraamatsaashnaanashne abhi (4)

Tri – paad – oordhvH – udait - PurushH – paadH - asya –ih - abhavat - punH – that - vishva - vyakraamat - saH - ashnaanashne abhi

Translation: (PurushH) this Param Akshar Brahm i.e. Eternal God (oordhvH) above (tri) three loks like, Satyalok – Alakh lok – Agam lok, - like (paad) one foot i.e. the upper part (udait') appears i.e. is seated. (asya) this very Parmeshwar’s / Purna Brahm’s (paadH) one foot i.e. one part, in the form of the Universe, (punar') then (ih) here (abhavat') appears (tatH) therefore (saH) that Eternal Purna Parmatma (ashanaanashne) even eater-Kaal i.e. Kshar Purush and non-eater ParBrahm i.e. Akshar Purush (abhi) above (vishva') everywhere (vyakraamat') is pervasive; which means, His supremacy is over all the brahmands and all the gods. He is the Master of the lineage who has extended His power over everyone.

Translation: This Param Akshar Brahm i.e. Eternal God appears i.e. is seated in the three loks-(Satyalok – Alakh lok – Agam lok)-like foot above i.e. in the upper part. This very Purna Brahm’s one foot i.e. one part, in the form of the Universe, then appears here. Therefore that Eternal/ Immortal Purna Parmatma is pervasive everywhere even above the eater Kaal i.e. Kshar Purush and the non-eater ParBrahm i.e. Akshar Purush; which means, His supremacy is over all the brahmands and all the gods. He is the Master of the lineage who has extended His power over everyone.

Meaning: - This God, the Creator of the entire Nature, Himself appears in three different forms i.e. is Himself present in the three places (Satlok, Alakh lok, Agam lok) in the upper part of His creation. Here, Anami lok has not been mentioned because there is no creation there, and the Akah (Anamay/Anami) lok existed before the rest of the creation. Then, it is said that, after separation from that God’s Satlok, the lower Brahm and ParBrahm’s loks arise, and that Supreme God is also present everywhere above the eater Brahm i.e. Kaal (because Brahm-Kaal / Viraat eats one-lakh human beings daily because of the curse on him) and the non-eater ParBrahm i.e. Akshar Purush (ParBrahm does not eat human beings, but birth-death and punishment according to their actions, remain the same in his loks); which means, this Supreme God’s supremacy is over everyone. God Kabir only is the Master of the lineage who has extended His power over everyone. Like, the sun affects everyone by spreading its light. Similarly, the Supreme God has extended the range (capacity) of His power over all the brahmands to control them. Like, the tower of a mobile phone even when present in one area, extends its power i.e. the range (capacity) of the mobile in all the four directions. Likewise, Purna Prabhu has extended His invisible power everywhere, by which Purna Parmatma controls all the brahmands sitting at one place.

Rigved Mandal 10 Sukta 90 Mantra 5

Tasmaadviraatajaayat viraajo adhi PurushH 
Sa jaato atyarichyat pashchaadabhoomimatho purH (5)

Tasmaat - viraat - ajaayat – viraajH – adhi – PurushH – sa – jaatH – atyarichyat – pashchaat - bhoomim - athH – purH

Translation: (tasmaat') thereafter, from the word-power/shabd-shakti of that Parmeshwar (viraat') Viraat i.e. Brahm who is also known as Kshar Purush and Kaal (ajaayat) originated (pashchaat') after this (viraajH) than Viraat Purush i.e. Kaal God (adhi) greater (PurushH) Parmeshwar (bhoomim') the loks of the Earth, loks of Kaal-Brahm and ParBrahm (atyarichyat) properly created (athH) then (purH) other small-small loks (sa) that Parmeshwar only (jaatH) created/gave rise i.e. established Translation: Thereafter, Viraat i.e. Brahm, who is also known as Kshar Purush and Kaal, originated from the word-power/shabd-shakti of that Parmeshwar. After this, the Parmeshwar, who is greater than Viraat Purush i.e. Kaal God, properly created the loks of the Earth; loks of Kaal-Brahm and ParBrahm. Then that Parmeshwar only created other smallsmall loks i.e. established them.

Meaning: - After the creation of the three loks (Agam lok, Alakh lok, and Satlok) mentioned in the aforesaid Mantra 4, the Purna Parmatma gave rise to Jyoti Niranjan (Brahm) i.e. from that All-powerful God Purna Brahm, KavirDev (God Kabir) only, Viraat i.e. Brahm (Kaal) was born. This same evidence is also in Gita Adhyay 3 Mantra 15 that Brahm originated from the Eternal God. This very evidence is also in Atharvaved Kaand 4 Anuvaak 1 Sukt 3 that Brahm originated from Purna Brahm1 and that same Purna Brahm created (bhoomim') all the small and big loks. That Purna Brahm is greater than this Viraat God i.e. Brahm; which means, is also his (Brahm’s) Master.

Rigved Mandal 10 Sukta 90 Mantra 15

SaptaasyaasanparidhayastriH sapt samidhH krtaH 
Deva yadhyagyaM tanvaana abadhnanPurushM pashum (15)

Sapt – asya – aasan - paridhayH – trisapt – samidhH – krtaH – deva – yat - yagyam - tanvaanaH – abadhnan - Purusham - pashum

Translation: (Sapt) seven sankh brahmands of ParBrahm and (trisapt) the twenty-one brahmands of Kaal/Brahm (samidhH) tortured by the fire of the sufferings of the punishment of sinful deeds (krtaH) which does (paridhayH) in the circular boundary (aasan') is present (yat') who (Purusham') of the Purna Parmatma (yagyam') offers religious service according to the ordinances i.e. worships (pashum') bound in the web of the bondage of actions like a sacrificial animal (deva) devout souls (tanvaanaH) from the web of the bondage of sinful actions created i.e. spread by Kaal (abadhnan') liberates i.e. is the liberator of the bondage; is Bandichhor.

Translation: The seven sankh brahmands of ParBrahm and the twenty-one brahmands of Kaal/Brahm are present in the circular boundary, which tortures one in the fire of the sufferings of the punishment of sinful deeds. He who offers religious service to i.e. worships the Purna Parmatma according to the ordinances, the devout souls bound in the trap of the bondage of actions of Kaal like a sacrificial animal, (Purna Parmatma) liberates them from the trap of the bondage of actions created i.e. spread by Kaal; which means is the liberator from the bondage i.e is Bandichhor.

Meaning: - The Supreme God tells the true way of worship to the living beings, who are bound in the circular boundary of the seven sankh brahmands of ParBrahm and twenty-one brahmands of Brahm and who are burning in the fire of their sinful actions, and makes them do the correct way of worship. On the basis of which, He liberates His devotee souls, who like a sacrificial animal, suffer from the agony of tapatshila and births-deaths (for Kaal’s food), by breaking the trap of the bondage of actions, and therefore, is the liberator i.e. Bandichhor.

Its evidence also lies in Holy Yajurved; Adhyay 5, Mantra 32,

that Kaviranghaariasi: (Kavir') God Kabir (Asi) is (Ari) the enemy of (Angh) sins, which means that God Kabir is the destroyer of all sins. Bambhaariasi: (Bambhaari) the enemy of bondage i.e. the liberator, Bandichhor (Asi) is God Kabir.

Rigved Mandal 10 Sukta 90 Mantra 16

Yagyen yagyamayajant devaastaani dharmaani prthmaanyaasan 
Te ha naakaM mahimaanH sachant yatr poorve saadhyaH santi devaH (16)

Yagyen – yagyam - a – yajant – devaH – taani – dharmaani – prthmaani – aasan - te – ha – naakam - mahimaanH – sachant – yatr – poorve – saadhyaH – santi – devaH

Translation: Who (devaH) flawless god-like devout souls (ayagyam') in place of the incomplete wrong religious pooja (yagyen) on the basis of the religious act of true bhakti (yajant) worship (taani) they (dharmaani) enriched with the religious power (prthmaani) are main i.e. superior (aasan') are (te ha) they only in reality (mahimaanH) equipped with the great power of bhakti (saadhyaH) successful devout souls (naakam') the complete happiness-giving Parmeshwar (sachant) on the basis of bhakti i.e. the earnings of the bhakti, attain. They go there (yatr) where (poorve) of the earlier creation (devaH) sinless god-like devout souls (santi) live. Translation: Those flawless god-like devout souls, who in place of the incomplete wrong way of worship, worship on the basis of the religious act of true bhakti, they, enriched with the religious power, are main i.e. superior. They i.e. the successful devotees, in reality, by being equipped with the great power of bhakti, attain the complete happiness-giving Parmeshwar on the basis of the bhakti i.e. the earnings of the true bhakti. They go there where the sinless god-like devout souls of the earlier creation live.

Meaning: - Those flawless (who have given up consumption of meat, alcohol, tobacco and are free from other vices) god-like devout souls who abandoning the way of worship against the injunctions of the scriptures, do scripture-based sadhna, they becoming rich with the earnings of bhakti and free from the debt of Kaal, because of the earnings of true bhakti, attain that all happiness giving Parmeshwar i.e. they go to Satlok where the sinless god-like hans souls of the first creation live.

Like, some souls came here after being caught in Kaal’s (Brahm’s) trap; some came with ParBrahm in seven sankh brahmands. But even then infinite souls, whose faith in the Supreme God remained unchanged and who did not fail in their loyalty towards their Master, remained there in Satlok. Therefore, here even the Vedas have proved this description to be true. This evidence is also given in Gita Adhyay 8 Shlok 8 to 10 that a devotee who does true sadhna of Purna Parmatma according to the injunctions of the scriptures, he by the power of the earnings of bhakti attains that Purna Parmatma i.e. goes to Him. This proves that there are three Gods – Brahm, ParBrahm and Purna Brahm. These are also known by synonyms like (1) Brahm – Ish – Kshar Purush, (2) ParBrahm – Ishwar – Akshar Purush – Akshar Brahm (3) Purna Brahm – Param Akshar Brahm – Parmeshwar – SatPurush – Purna Parmatma and Param Akshar Purush.

It is also evident in RigVed Mandal 9 Sukta 96 Mantra 17 to 20, that the Supreme God KavirDev (Kabir Parmeshwar) appears by acquiring the form of a child and delivers His pure knowledge i.e. Tattavgyan to His followers through (KavirgirbhiH) Kabir Vaani by telling aloud. That KavirDev (God Kabir) is seated in human form in the third Ritdhaam (Satlok) of Purna Brahm1 (Param Akshar Purush), which is different from Brahm’s (Kshar Purush’s) Dhaam and ParBrahm’s (Akshar Purush’s) Dhaam. The fourth lok from Satlok is Anami lok, in that also this same KavirDev (Kabir Parmeshwar) is seated in visible human-like form as Anami Purush.
