Trimurti - the three apparently contradictory aspects of existence: A concise history - By Francis Watson p. He believed that it is "the greatest representation of the pantheistic god created by the hands of man.
In the words of Rene Grousset, " The three countenances of the one being are here harmonized without a trace of effort. There are few material representations of the divine principle at once as powerful and as well balanced as this in the art of the whole world.
Nay, more, here we have undoubtedly the grandest representation of the pantheistic God ever made by the hand of man Indeed, never have the exuberant vigor of life, the tumult of universal joy expressing itself in ordered harmony, the pride of a power superior to any other, and the secret exaltation of the divinity immanent in all things found such serenely expressed.
The Hindu Trinity also called Trimurti meaning three formsis the representation of the three manifestations of the Supreme Reality, as Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Brahma symbolizes creation, Vishnu preservation and renewal, and Shiva dissolution or destruction necessary for recreation.
It must be understood that the members of the Hindu Trinity are not three different and independent gods, but three aspects of one Supreme Reality called Bramh by the seers of the Upanishads.
Lord Brahma - the first member of the trinity though much less important than the other two, namely Vishnu and Mahesha, is manifested as the active creator of this universe. The name Brahma is not found in the Vedas and the Brahmanas, where the active creator is merely known as Golden-embryo Hirayna-garbha or the Lord of Progeny Praja-pati.
The Mahabharata considers him as born from the embryo which took shape in Vishnu's mind when he began to think of creation. After the destruction of one universe Vishnu falls asleep, floating on the causal waters. When another universe is to be created, Brahma appears on a lotus, which springs from the navel of Vishnu.
When Brahma creates the world it remains in existence for one of his days, which means 2,, years in terms of Hindu calendar. When Brahma goes to sleep after the end of his day, the world and all that is therein is consumed by fire.
When he awakes he again restores the whole creation. This goes on till the hundred years of Brahma's life is completed. When this period ends he himself loses his existence, and he all gods and sages, and the whole universe are dissolved into their constituent elements.
Today though Brahma's name is invoked in many religious services, his image is worshipped in only a few temples. Brahma seems to have been thrown into shade probably because in Hindu mind he has ceased to function actively after creation of the world, though he will exert himself again while creating a new universe when this present one will meet its end.
Understandably, the legends about this god are not so numerous or rich as those centered round the other two of the trinity. Lord Brahma known as Phra Phrom in Thailand. Thai-Buddhist tradition associates Lord Brahma with creation.
Loving Kindness, Compassion, Sympathy and Equanimity. He has four heads and is therefore called Chaturanana or Chaturmukha.
His vehicle is the swan or goose, the symbol of knowledge. He is therefore said to be riding on the swan hansa-vahana. He is the source of all knowledge and his consort, Saraswati, is the goddess of knowledge. Lord Vishnu is the central and major deity of the trinity.
He is the preserver and for all practical purposes he is deemed to be omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient.Essays Ancient and Modern - Kindle edition by T.
