Freebase

  1. Brahma

    Brahmā is the Hindu god of creation and one of the Trimūrti, the others being Viṣņu and Śiva. According to the Brahmā Purāņa, he is the father of Manu, and from Manu all human beings are descended. In the Rāmāyaņa and the Mahābhārata, he is often referred to as the progenitor or great grandsire of all human beings. He is not to be confused with the Supreme Cosmic Spirit in Hindu Vedānta philosophy known as Brahman, which is genderless. Brahmā's wife is Saraswati. Saraswati is also known by names such as Sāvitri and Gāyatri, and has taken different forms throughout history. Saraswati is the Vedic Goddess, revered as Vedamāta, meaning Mother of the Vedas. Brahmā is often identified with Prajāpati, a Vedic deity. Being the husband of Saraswati or Vaac Devi, Brahma is also known as "Vaagish," meaning "Lord of Speech and Sound."

The Nuttall Encyclopedia

  1. Brahma

    in the Hindu religion and philosophy at one time the formless spirit of the Universe, from which all beings issue and into which they all merge, and as such is not an object of worship, but a subject of meditation; and at another the creator of all things, of which Vishnu (q. v.) is the preserver and Siva (q. v.) the destroyer, killing that he may make alive. See Trimurti.

Examples of brahma in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    The three letters in "GOD" represent three important aspects of the Supreme Power IMHO, namely Generation, Organization and Destruction (of evil) that ensure an amazing balance and wonderful justice in our world. Interestingly the same three aspects are presented in Hindu Philosophy, manifested as "Trimurti" or "Trinity" comprising Lord Brahma (Generation), Lord Vishnu (Organization), And Lord Mahesh (Destruction of evil). There is an astounding resemblance in the thought processes from the East and the West. And that's truly fascinating!

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    In Hinduism, there is a concept of "Trimurti", or the Great Trinity or the Supreme Power, which embodies the cosmic functions of creation, maintenance, and destruction. These three cosmic functions are personified, in the Hinduism, by the forms of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer of evil. In my view, the word God also signifies, in it's three letters, these three cosmic functions of the Great Trinity from Hinduism, i.e. Generation, Organization and Destruction. I find it interesting that the concept of Great Trinity from ancient Eastern culture has been the basis for many faiths in the Western culture. It's amazing!

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    las tres letras de "GOD" representan tres aspectos importantes del podia supremo en mi humilde opinión, es decir, la generación, la organización y la destrucción (del mal) que aseguren un equilibrio increíble y maravillosa la justicia en nuestro mundo. Curiosamente los mismos tres aspectos se presentan en la filosofía hindú, que se manifiesta como "Trimurti" o "trinidad" que comprende brahma señor (generación), vishnu señor (organización), y Mahesh señor (destrucción del mal). Hay una semejanza asombrosa en los procesos de pensamiento desde el este y el oeste. Y eso es verdaderamente fascinante!
