In the Vedas there are many hymns which are dedicated to the Ka. At the time of Panini, the word 'Ka' meant a Brahman. In the Puranas 'Ka' appears as a renowned god, the supreme god is represented with his family and himself. In the Mahabharata
, 'Ka' is compared with Daksha. In the Bhagavata Purana 'Ka' is compared with Kashyapa, for their great generative powers and similarity to Prajapati. Thus 'Ka' means the god who presides over the excretory and generative organs.
