Bhur in the mythology of India, is one of the mysterious works which was milked by Brahma from the Vedas (then sacred books, represented under the symbol of milk-producing cows). It denotes the earth, whose mystical picture it is. The earth has five attributes, known through the senses — smell, taste, color, feeling or touch, and sound; and the other elements, going downwards, have each one attribute less. Water lacks smell; fire, besides smell, lacks taste; the air lacks smell, taste, and touch; and aether has only sound left.
