The Lower Nature of Prakriti

The higher nature of Prakriti includes things that are regarded as the life force which hold all living things on earth. Therefore, it stresses that all the living things emerge from prakriti’s two-fold levels. All living things melt in a universal Prakriti at the end of their lives while at the start of creation, God breathes new life in them and they live again. The Purusha, on the other hand, is responsible for creating all living or existing communities and the entire creation both in motion and stagnant.
The Prakriti represents the mind and the body with all their components while Purusha represents the inside witness ego or spirit which is the clean conscience that lives beyond the human mind and senses (Giles 82). Further, it is significant to note that the Purusha represents the collective cosmic male whose endurance leads in the evidence of world and life. By enduring the hardships and pains, it forms the basis for one to liberate or free himself from evils of this world. The idea of Purusha is well entrenched in the Vedas specifically the purushasukta which explains how the worlds were formed and how beings were given the power to live in accordance with natural laws. Further, it illustrates that the social order of the worlds was build from the Purusha.
The purusha exists in two types. the perishable and the imperishable. In this case, the body is perceived as perishable while the soul is seen as the imperishable. An important note is that the Supreme Being does not comprise any of these features because he is beyond Prakriti. The supreme being possessed the highest qualities and is above the inner self, sustains and protects the world he created by guiding them in the right path. The Prakriti takes care of the dual sense and illusion of living things. Therefore, all major transformations occur because of Prakriti. Via the connection with the ‘gunas’, it binds the inner soul to the sense of objects and hence leads to the birth of good and bad womb.&nbsp.
