This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

Purusha

There is also a twenty-fifth tattva, which is called Purusha or Pumas, although it must be considered completely independent of the other twenty-four, which comprise Universal Substance and all of its modifications. Purusha, which we can call essence, acts as the opposite pole of manifestation, and acts as the complement of Prakriti. Even though all manifested things are produced by Prakriti, it is Purusha that lends to them a reality that they would otherwise lack.
