Brahma


The Lord Of myth Shri Brahma


In my childhood when I use to watch the Indian mythologicals dramas on TV  of all the characters the character of Brahma use to raise a lot of questions inside me, I use to ask myself and my family members why is he sitting on a lotus flower didn't he get a good chair, after all he is God, looking at his wife I use to ask why he is so old among all Indian God and why his wife looks so young, why  Brahma give all his blessing to the devils and I use to wonder why the hell does this devil worship only Brahma or Shiva why can't they worship Vishnu and be immortal, I don't know why this kind of thought use to strike me, but I use to ask these question to my elders but their answer never satisfied me.

With time however I realised that Brahma is nothing but the Lord of the myth, The word "Brahm" in sanskrit means Myth, it's the very reason because of which a sex is attracted toward opposite sex, the myth due to which people take care of their child, a myth due to which we are less attracted towards a old compare to a new born, myth is the governing principal of the world without the existence of myth this world will not progress, myth is required, but myth should not be worshiped i.e. the reason there is no Temple for Brahma in India except for a temple in Pushkar.

Asur i.e. the human being with evil deeds worship this myth, and they indeed are successful. by tremendous dedication, hard work & intelligence developed something by virtue of which they can't be killed in certain conditions, There is an interesting story about the Narsingh Avtaar that I would like to share with you all, the moral of that story will be applicable to every era.

“Hiranaya Kashyap” was a King described in Ancient text who by worshipping Brahma i.e. by worshipping myth i.e. by  tremendous dedication, hard work & intelligence developed something by virtue of which he can neither be Killed in Water, Land or Air, he can’t be killed by any Beast or a Man, he can’t be killed by any weapon, he thought that now he is immortal, but the mother nature created a new species called Narsingh that is neither a Man nor a Beast or a animal but a Half man and a half beast. The King was killed by Narsingh on his lap i.e. neither on Water, Land or on Air with the help of his nails i.e. not a weapon.

So the moral of the story is that whatever you do it has to be in accordance with the laws of the nature otherwise if you will not take this fact in to account than though you may enjoy temporary benefit of heaven by your hard work & controlling your senses (Indriya) i.e. the God Indra , you will not be able to be in heaven  for always.

Lord Brahma has been carved out to be old man with four heads representing the dilemma inside the person who is under the influence of Brahma, the person under his influence doesn't have a steady mind and feels old and exhausted. Myth  is very subtle that's the reason why Brahma is shown residing on a lotus flower, Sarwasti i.e. the goddess of Knowledge is required for the stability of the person under the influence of Brahma, Knowledge is always young and blissful and that is the reason why Saraswati is Shown to be accompanying Lord Brahma.

Brahma is everywhere even Shri Vishnu can't escape from his influence i.e. the reason why Shri Ram (A Vishnu) abandon his wife after his exile in forest, but the impact of brahma over Vishnu is very minimal thats the reason why Brahma is shown on the navel of Shri Vishnu. Om :)
