He brooded over him. Of him so brooded over, the mouth came forth, just as is the case with an egg when it is hatched; from his mouth, speech ; and from speech, fire.

Then his nostrils came forth; from his nostrils, Prana; and from Prūna, air. His eyes came forth; from his eyes, sight; from sight, the sun. His ears came forth; from his ears, sound; and from sound, the cardinal points ( disah).

His skin came forth; from the skin, hair; from the hair, herbs and big trees, the lords of the forests. His heart came forth; from the heart, the mind; and from the mind, the moon. The navel came forth; from the navel, the Apàna, and from Apana, death. His generative organ came forth; from the generative organ, semen; and from semen, water.

Shankara’s Commentary:

He brooded over the lump intending to give it the form of a man, i.e., he thought over it. According to the Sruti "His activity lies in know- ing and thinking." Of the form so brooded over by the Lord, the mouth came out, i.e., a cavity in the form of the mouth was produced; just as the egg of a bird bursts. Of the mouth so formed, the sense of speech was produced; and from thence, the fire, the presiding deity and the protector of speech. So the nostrils were formed; from the nostril, Prâna and from Prâna, air. Thus in all cases the organ, the sense, the deity, these three were gradually evolved; the eyes, the ears, the skin, the heart which is the seat of the mind, the mind, the navel which is the seat of all vital energies; the lower orifice of the bowels is called Apâna, because of its connection with the vital energy. Apâna: The presiding deity of this is death. As in the case of the other organs the generative organ, i.e., the organ intended for procreating, was formed. Semen to be secreted from it and waters from the semen.
