Skandham-5. Chapter-2. Slokam-3.



Understanding King Agnidhra's desire, the first and most powerful created
being of this universe, Lord Brahma, selected the best of the dancing girls in his
assembly, whose name was Purvacitti, and sent her to the King.



In this Slokam, the words bhagavan Adi-purushah are significant. Bhagavan
Adi-purushah is Lord Krishna. Govindam Adi-purushah tam aham bhajami **. Lord
Krishna is the original person. In Bhagavadgeeta, He is also addressed by Arjuna
as purusham adyam, the original person, and He is called Bhagavan. In this
slokam, however, we see that Lord Brahma is described as bhagavan Adi-purushah.
The reason he is called bhagavan is that he fully represents the Supreme
Personality of Godhead and is the first-born creature in this universe. Lord
Brahma could understand Maharaja Agnidhra's desire because he is as
powerful as Lord Vishnu. As Lord Vishnu, situated as Paramatma, can
understand the desire of the living entity, so Lord Brahma can also understand
the living entity's desire, for Vishnu, as a via medium, informs him. As stated in
Srimad Bhagavatam (1.1.1), tene brahma hrda ya adi-kavaye: Lord Vishnu
informs Lord Brahma of everything from within his heart. Because Maharaja
Agnidhra specifically worshiped Lord Brahma, Lord Brahma was pleased, and
he sent Purvacitti, the Apsara, to satisfy him.
