Purusa - an essential subject
Purusa is defined as 'man'. So who is the man that we talk about in the spiritual context? Vedas state that there is only one man in this whole cosmic creation, and that is Lord Krishna, the originator and creator of this entire creation. Since He is the only 'man' or the 'enjoyer', the rest of this material energy is known as prakriti; servants of Lord Krishna. This is our real constitutional position. Moreover, since Lord Krishna is known as purusa, He is known to have a form; therefore, one can conclude that God is not formless but has a personal form which we should worship as His eternal servants.

Quotes from Srila Prabhupada's books
|It is stated in the Bhagavad-gītā that the impersonal Brahman effulgence is also an emanation from the Absolute Personality of Godhead Śrī Kṛṣṇa. The parama-puruṣa cannot be anyone except Śrī Kṛṣṇa Himself. (Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 1.7.4)|
