Picking up from where we left on Part 1. Still on Brahma.
So, Brahma despite being the creator is never worshipped. How many temples do we see of Brahma? Well legend has two stories to testify and to lead us further. First one is about the greed to ace. It says that once Brahma and Vishnu were in an argument as to who is a greater God. Brahma the creator or Vishnu the Sustainer? ( I personally think its SHIVA the destroyer… But my views don’t really count here😄) So Shiva intervened in the arguement and challenges both the lords to reach the highest and inner most part of his Shivling in the most giant manifested form. While Lord Vishnu choses to simply worship Shiva, Brahma decides to cheat (Logic and psychology has it, its easier for the maker of the rules to actually break it than the ones following them). He falsly claims to have accomplished the task and also convinces Ketaki flower to testify the same. Shiva finds out the truth and curses Brahma that the one who is not pure and true wont be worshipped. Also, Ketaki flower wont ever be used in any rituals. The custom follows till date. Second story is about sexual desire and Saraswati river which we will cover in another post. So he is never really worshipped.
Soon post creation of the Brahmaand, Brahma requested Shiva to part with sati as world needed energy. I personally think all the energy in the universe comes from a single source – Sati. Call it a goddess, or call it the ultimate power…. Does that make a difference?
Well this is what legend says. In my opinion, the reasoning is different.
Who do we worship? The one who fulfills our PRESENT NEEDS.
We are thankful for Lord Brahma for creating us. But thats about it. How many of us think of the soil or seeds that created the massive tree? Just alike, we worship Vishnu because He helps us sustain. We worship Lord Shiva because we fear destruction or death. Over a passage of time, people forgot the significance of the one who created and emphasis jumped on survival and sustainability. AFTER ALL, ISNT MOVING ON THE PIVOTAL TASK OF OUR EXISTENCE? Hence Vishnu and Shiva are placed in our shrines at home as well as outside. Brahma is known for his scientific planning. He planned the world or say worlds. I strongly believe there are more worlds than just us. There are more universes than just ours which makes it Multi-verse.
So do we have any ancient Scriptures to testify my theory and belief of a multi verse? Well, my research says yes there is. Our books and scripts have so many secrets hidden within them. We just need to rake it up. I am trying to do just that through my blog amd extensive research. Lets discuss that in the next Part of my blog.
