God Bhrahma is creator in Hinduisum
In Hindu mythology names are often singular. They lack surnames, or the cities from which they hail, as is common in many Western traditions.
brahma is the god who make that world
Though there are a few temples for Brahma, in general, Hindus don't worship Brahma. Below are some reasons why Brahma is not worshiped. Brahma took his creation Sarsawati as h…is consort. Since this amounts to incest he is not worshiped.Brahma lied to Shiva that he could find the upper end of Shiva linga. Shiva cursed him that he wouldn't be worshiped.Brahmarshi Bhrigu cursed him because when he went to Brahma to invite him for a Yagna he was deeply immersed in the music played by Saraswati and couldn't hear Bhrigu's calls.
First off, he doesn't exist. There are countless of stories about him that are contradicting and different. Not one site has an accurate account of him. He is not worshipp…ed, and the Hindus simply don't care about him.
According to Hinduism, 3 main gods are there. we are calling them as Trimurthi, they are: Brahma, Vishnu & Shiva Hindus are believing god brahma, Because he is the… creator of this beautiful world.
If you visit Indian villages you can still see people worshiping trees as some deities. and not only that each animal in our ecology represents a vehicle of gods. For exampl…e Lion is for Goddess Durga, Snake for Lord Shiva, Eagle for Lord Vishnu etc. And cows are treated as the most sacred animal in Hinduism. In Tamil Nadu located in southern part of India, people still celebrate a day dedicated to cows for worship and thanks giving following the festival of harvest called pongal. and lot more to say.
because he is?
Brahmas the Hindu god of creation and one of the Trimurti, the others being Vishnu and Shiva. According to the Brahma purana, he is the father of Manu, and from Manu all human… beings are descended.
Yes, that or Bruhman but I'm sure that's their preists or preistests.
Yes. Brahma is one of the Trimutri (Great Trinity). He is the God of Creation and is in the Trimutri with Shiva and Vishnu. Vishnu is said to be the 'Supreme Gods' as well… as one of the five primary forms of God. Shiva, the God of Destruction/Transformation. Or something like that.
Lord Brahma is the first member of the Brahmanical triad and sits on a Lotus. The lotus represents the Reality. Brahma sitting on the lotus indicates that he is ever-rooted i…n the infinite Reality.
To understand why Lord Brahma the creator (not to be confused with Brahman) is not worshiped by Hindus, you will have to know the story of 'Testing the divine Trinity by Bhrig…u'. Maharishi Bhrigu the ManasaPutra (wish-born-son) of Lord Brahma, is one of the Saptarshis (seven great sages) and one of the Prajapatis. Many great sages gathered at the bank of river Saraswati to participate in Maha yagya organized at that time. Maharishi Bhrigu was also present there. All the great saints and sages could not decide that out of the Trinity Lord Vishnu, Brahma and Shiva who is pre-eminent and to whom should they offer Pradhanta (Master) of that yagya. With the consent of all the great saints present there, it was decided that Maharishi Bhrigu will test and decide who was pre-eminent. Upon being entrusted with the task Maharishi Bhrigu decided to test Lord Brahma first. He went on to see Lord Brahma in Brahmalok. On reaching Brahmalok Maharishi displayed utter disrespect to Lord Brahma on purpose. Lord Brahma got angry and wanted to punish Maharishi but Maha Saraswati, wife of Lord Brahma saved Maharishi from his anger. Angry with disrespect, Maharishi Bhrigu cursed Lord Brahma that no one will worship Brahma in Kaliyug. To this day, there are very few temples devoted to Lord Brahma (the notable exception being the Brahma Temple at Pushkar). Maharishi Bhrigu then decided to visit Lord Shiva at Kailash Parvat. On reaching Kailash Parvat, Nandi stopped him from going inside because at that time, Shiva and Parvati were sporting fun. Then in order to test Lord Vishnu, Maharishi reached Vaikunth Dham. He entered the Dham without Lord Vishnu's permission and saw that the Lord was resting at that time. Maharishi asked him to wake up, but Lord was in deep sleep. On seeing no reaction from Lord, Maharishi hit Lord Vishnu on his chest (that strike by Maharishi Bhrigu left a foot print on Lord's chest and that foot print is known as "Shri Vatsa"). Lord Vishnu got up after the strike and realized what has happened. On realizing that Maharishi had hit him with his foot, Lord asked him, "Maharishi, are you hurt in your foot? My chest is strong but your foot is not so strong". Seeing the decorum of Lord Vishnu, Bhrigu was pleased and declared him superior amongst the Tridev.
Hindus show respect by reading it, or even having it in their homes next to the Gods. SOme of the holy books are the Ramayan and the Bhagvad Gita. People sometimes chant verse…s from these books as prayers.
GOD is one and --- BRAHMA ,VISHNU, SHIVA are three different qualities of god as GENERATOR , OPERATER , DESTROYER .. GOD. BUT as human beings misinterpret the things… so according to them BRAHMA - Gave birth so his part is done and he can be of no use VISHNU - Is operating and sustaining life so he can help, let us pray to him SHIVA - Will give death so better pray to him so that he can delay it. Hahaha, it is funny but it might be
