Purusha Is Sanskrit For: Human Being

The Sanskrit word for "human being" is purusha,
which basically means "something that possesses power."
Being human means having power; specifically,
the power to accomplish whatever we want.
And what we want goes back to the basic biological urge
to be happy and to avoid pain.
