BRAHMA

Picture of Brahma

Brahma is the Hindu supreme god and creator of the cosmos. He is the first person of the Hindu triad, the others being Vishnu and Shiva. He is represented as a man of a red colour with four faces and generally four hands each of which holds a portion of the Vedas, in one a lustral vessel, in one a rosary, and in one a sacrificial spoon.
