Brahma - The Creator of the Universe

Brahma is one of the three major Gods in the Sanatana tradition, along with Vishnu and Shiva known as the Trimurti. He is known as the creator of the universe and is often depicted with four heads and four arms, sitting on a lotus flower.

According to Hindu mythology, Brahma emerged from a golden egg, which was the product of the cosmic egg (Hiranyagarbha) created by the union of Shiva and Shakti. Brahma then created the universe and all living beings, including humans. He is also said to have created the Vedas, the ancient Hindu texts that contain spiritual and philosophical knowledge.

Despite being the creator, Brahma is not widely worshipped in Hinduism compared to Vishnu and Shiva.In Hindu iconography, Brahma is often depicted holding a scepter, a water pot, a rosary, and a book, representing his role as the creator, sustainer, and source of knowledge.

Brahma is also associated with the concept of Brahman, the Ultimate Reality and source of all existence in Hinduism. The idea is that all living beings, including Brahma, are part of the larger cosmic consciousness that is Brahman.
