The gods and Prajapati now freed themselves from the dominion of Death by celebrating an enormous number of sacrifices.
The god Agni, Brahmans and the goat were born from the mouth of Prajapati.
That deer-head of Prajapati severed from the trunk, became the star, or rather constellation, called Mrigasiras.
Prajapati reflected, 'How is it that my creatures perish after having been formed?'
Prajapati becomes the great mythical hero, and inherits the wildest myths of the savage heroic beasts and birds.
Earlier forms of this myth recognize Brahma, or Prajapati, as the boar.
In the end Prajapati created Death, “a devourer of creatures”.
The Brahmanas also tell us that Prajapati had an unholy passion for his daughter, who was in the form of a doe.
They overcame him by certain sacrifices suggested by Prajapati.
If his feet are washed, it is the Pitris who are delighted; and if he is fed it is Prajapati that is pleased.
