Narayana Upanishad

Then Narayana, the Supreme Being desired ‘I shall project beings’. From Narayana emanates the prāṇa (Life Breath), mind and the sense organs, ether, air, fire, water, and the earth that supports all. From Narayana emanates Brahma. From Narayana emanates Rudra. From Narayana emanates Indra. From Narayana emanate the Prajapatis (The Divine Progenitors). From Narayana emanates the 12 Adityas, Rudras, Vasus and all the Vedic metres (chandas). From Narayana only do they proceed. Through Narayana do they prosper. In Narayana are they reabsorbed. This is taught as the head of the Rig Veda.
