Untitled[edit]

I think this article has got the concept of Purusha as in Hinduism totally wrong. Can somebody change its contents or at least put a cleanup tag or something till somebody else does it?

Purusha/Anthropos[edit]

I'd like to know whether this article is right or wrong as I would like to know if the concept of the Purusha is the same or similar to the Western idea of the Anthropos. ThePeg 15:19, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Ymir[edit]
