Sruti -- that which is heard -- is of the nature of divine revelation. We believe that the Vedas, hymns composed by seers and sages beginning as best as we can date them in BC, were sung under divine inspiration.

Saunaka, Apastamba, and Bodhayana have also written concerning the use of the Purusha Suktam. What does the Purusha Suktam talk about?
He was the source of all creation. It describes this form of his, as having countless heads, eyes, legs, manifested everywhere, and beyond the scope of any limited method of comprehension.
All creation is but a fourth part of him. The rest is unmanifested. Your senses, the devas, shall be the ritviks. Your body shall be the havis. Your heart, the altar.
And I shall be he who enjoys the havis -- the offering. From your body sacrificed, shall you create bodies for all living creatures, as you have done in kalpas before this. The act of creation itself grew out of yajna, the rite of sacrifice. Who was worshipped at this sacrifice?
It was the Purusha. Brahma, the creative aspect of the Purusha. Who were the ritvik priests? Who was tied as the beast of the sacrifice? What was barhis, the altar of the sacrifice? Who was the fire? Again, the Purusha himself, his great body that contained all of creation.
In a way, this is a message of love, that the Purusha would consume himself in the fire of creation, to create all the worlds. From this sacrifice did all of creation emanate. This is central to the message of the Purusha Sukta.
Who knows the Purusha thus, attains immortality in this very birth. I know of no other way to salvation.An Introduction to the Purusha Sukta Where is the Purusha Suktam in the Vedas?
