The Vedas say, "The Cosmic Being has innumerable heads, innumerable eyes and innumerable feet. It is He that has encompassed the whole universe and it is He again who transcends it. That Being is this whole cosmos, all that is, all that was, and all that will be. He manifests Himself in the form of all. . He also is the Lord and Giver of Immortality. The manifested universe forms but a small portion of His Being, in the main He remains unmanifest and immortal."
