Nitya, Naimitthika, Dwiparaartha and Prakrita, Kaala, Mrityu Kanya and Vyadhiganas. Later on Brahma continued his Srishti from his Prishta (rear side) the two entities -Adharma and Alakshmi; from his nabhi (navel) Vishwakarma the Shilpa Guru, from his Balaparaakrama or prowess the Eight Vaus; Manasa Putras (mind-born sons) Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatan....
