Dear Bhaktas,
I'm going through the purusha sukta shlokas, I'm
trying to understand each shlokas and trying to find
the inner meaning. I could get for most of the shlokas
by identifying  set of  shloka(s) in Srimad Bhagavat
For example as we all know, several shlokas of
Srimadbhagavathgeetha can be associated to the first
hymn of the purusha sukta. One such is in the 11th
chapter where Arjuna describes the virAta swarUpa of
Lord by saying the same. (Bahu pada udhara nethra..)
While making such personal notes on purusha sukta, I
couldn’t understand the seventh hymn. I tried going
through the Bhagavathgeeta and tried to find out what
is the trisaptha samiths. I couldn’t find with my
limited knowledge
Could anybody tell me what is the sapta paridaya and
what represents the trisapta samiths? I tried reading
through several translation but none was very

Here is the shloka’s snippet for your reference

saptAsyA san paridayah  trisaptah samidhah krtAh |
deva yad yajnam tanvAnAh  abadhnan purusham pashum |

Sincere Regards,
Srivatsa Kadambi
