Primordial Waters

Primordial Waters are said to have been those from which Prajapati arose. http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/iml/iml11.htm In this tradition, the Waters and Oceans are Male: cf. later Varuna, Poseidon, Neptune. In the Babylonian tradition, the Primaeval Waters and Oceans are Female: Mummu Tiamtu (Salt Water) Primordial Waters have sometimes been linked with Apas and with clouds and hence with Primordial Rain Clouds. http://www1.shore.net/~india/ejvs/ejvs0302/ejvs0302.txt
