to the bible of the Brahma religion there are three gods each
possessing differing moral principles, greatness, and miracles.
The three gods are directly responsible for human welfare; they
are collectively called "Tree Murati" and consists of Vishnu,
Siva, and Brahma. Brahma is believed to be the Creator of all
things of the world. He is the "Sayampoo" meaning one who
originates himself. He is cool-tempered and possesses the highest
moral principles. He
full of kindness, mercy, sympathy, and impartiality. These four
precepts comprise the "Conscientious Behaviour" corresponding to
Buddhist teaching which instructs Buddhists of the four Dharma.
Besides creating the world, Brahma also creates heaven and human
The origin of Brahma
is a rather complicated story because each legend has its own
version. Some say that Brahma originated inside a golden egg; some
say that He originated inside a lotus sprouting up from Vishnu's
navel while the latter was sleeping on the back of the Naga King
at Kasean Ocean; some say that Brahma is the split-up person of
Vishnu at the time he was to create the world. Nevertheless, the
version of Masanapurana is the least complicated and easiest to
remember. According to this legend, Brahma a.k.a. "Ahpawa" split
Himself into two persons after originating. One person is male who
is He Himself while the other person is female named Sataroopa or
Sarasawadee. Both helped create angels, humans, animals, ogres,
and all plants of this world.
Brahma has a red
torso; is four-headed or four-faced. Brahma has four hands: one
hand carries a walking stick, one carries two
another carries a pot, and the last one carries a bible. A bead
string hangs from His neck. He is armed with a bow called
Paraweeta and has a hansa (a white horse in the version of the
Lama sect story) as the beast of burden. The abode of Brahma is
called Brohmbharuenatha situated in Brahma world. In the Tripoom
Praruang it is stated that the Brahma abode is higher than heaven
and Brahma is divided into many types viz Material Brahma and
Non-material Brahma. The Material Brahma has 16 levels :
Parishabhum Brahma, Parohithabhum Brahma,
Parithabhum, Appamanabhum, Ahpassarabhum, Parithasupabhum,
Appamanasupabhum, Supa-kinahabhum, Wehappabhalabhum, Asanyeebhum,
Awihabhum, Atapahabhum, Suthatsabhum, Suthatseebhum, and
Akanitthabhum. These 16 levels Brahma has only men and no women.
The Brahma himself sits forever still.
Brahma is even higher. It has no matter but has only mind. There
are all together 4 levels: Akasayanjayathon, Winyananchayathon,
Akinjanyayut, and Newasanyanayon. Those who are to be born to be
Brahma must have practised basic meditation from Primary Chaan
till Panjama Chaan. Who is to live in which Brahma level depends
on his/her Chaan practised in each activity.
The Brahma wife is
Sarasawadee who was created by Brahma himself. Brahma has good
disposition: cool-tempered and gives
to whoever asks for it. He is full of the four Dharma viz
kindness, mercy, sympathy, and impartiality and extends his
benevolence to all animals. In our Buddhist story there is a
mention of Brahma at the time He invited the Lord Buddha
preach the teachable animals. At the time the Lord Buddha rose to
heaven to preach his mother who lived in the second level heaven,
it was Indra and Brahma who accosted him on his way back to earth.
Sarasawadee the Brahma wife is held by brahmins as the goddess of
the intellect and technical matters.
She is the mother of Phravet and invented the Thevanakree
alphabets, Sarasawadee is a beautiful woman with soft-white torso.
She has four hands: on her right she carries a bouquet for
worshipping Brahma in one hand and a palm-leaved bible in another,
on her left is a pearl necklace called Sivamala in one hand and a
harp in another. She is usually enthroned on a lotus dais or a
peacock back and sometimes uses the hansa as her beast of burden.
Brahma together with
Sarasawadee helped create everything on this earth and Sarasawadee
was the creator of the Thevanakree alphabets and Sanskrit
language. She also loves and supports the Arts and Sciences.
