Significance of God Brahma
Brahma, the Hindu god responsible for creation shared a triune relationship with Vishnu, the one who preserves and Shiva the destroyer. The most well-known image of this early god shows Brahma with four faces and four arms standing on a lotus flower throne.

In his hands, Brahma holds:

1. A spoon-like scepter for pouring oil on sacrificial altars.

2. A water pot signifying the elemental substance which preceded creation.

3. Prayer beads on a string by which he kept count of the universe's time.

4. The Vedas (Sacred Texts)

Earliest Hindu believers held that Brahma was born from a golden egg. Later traditions have him born from a lotus flower which grew from Vishnu's navel. He was accepted as being responsible for creating the universe and all it contains. Brahma created the ten Prajapatis understood to be the ancestors of the human race.

The swan, a creature considered sacred for its ability to extract water from milk once the two liquids have been blended, is said to have transported Brahma in his travels. The swan's discerning skills, reflected Brahma's virtue of universal justice for all living beings, no matter how many conflicts of interests might exist in whatever interactions applied. The separation of milk from water was also used as an analogy to convey how critical it is to separate good from evil.

During the millennium 500BCE to 500CE Brahma was Hinduism's supreme god. Following this era, and with the growth of Hinduism, Brahma was replaced in his role as the core object of worship by Vishnu, Shiva and the Great Goddess.

Various Hindu legends and traditions refer to a curse placed on Brahma which removed his validity as a subject of worship. One of these stories relates how a noted oracle set out to find the greatest god who would reign supreme over all the others. When the oracle called on Brahma to present himself, Brahma was so enraptured by the music he was listening to, that he failed to hear the summons. Furious at being ignored, the oracle cursed Brahma and vowed that no-one would ever worship or call on Brahma again.

No longer widely worshipped as the supreme god, festivals and rituals are still observed to honor Brahma who remains a significant god in Hinduism. To this day, temples which honor Shiva or Vishnu also bear Brahma's image standing on his lotus throne. Temples dedicated to Brahma exclusively still exist in several districts of India today and become centers of pilgrimage and enthusiastic celebrations during festivals. brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india brahma mandir india
