Mythology behind Lord Brahma
Even though numerous ancient texts make numerous references to Brahma, different scriptures speak differently about him. While some people believe that Lord Brahma is the supreme creator of the universe and its beings, many others disagree. While Lord Brahma is considered to be the secondary creator, others consider Purusha or Brahman to be the ultimate creator. He is depicted in the Bhagavata Purana as emerging from the ocean of causes at the same time as the universe and time are born. He is depicted in numerous scriptures as being born in a lotus that emerged from Lord Vishnu’s navel, the preservation figure, as he lies reclining on his serpent couch in the milky ocean. As an ascetic, Brahma contemplated deeply while meditating on Vishnu, came to his sense of self, developed his creative abilities, and began his remarkable creation. He created a brilliant array of creatures of a vast variety by combining the soul and spirit, known as Purusha, with nature and matter, known as Prakruti. However, there are texts that assert that there are numerous Brahmas, each associated with a Kalpa, which refers to an eon. According to these theories, he is the entity that begins, exists, and ends with an eon, and that this cycle continues with each Kalpa.
Regardless of the legend, the fact remains that Brahma is regarded as a lesser God despite his status as one of the supreme Gods. According to a legend, when his partner was playing on veena (string instrument), and he remained so retained in the music that he neglected to get a strong sage appropriately at his home. The wise man was offended by Brahma and cursed him, saying that neither there would be many temples for him nor would many people worship him. As a result, there are not many temples dedicated to him, and the people’s devotion to him is also quite limited.
