Excerpts

In India, Brahmadeva is not worshiped except there is one temple where they worship Brahmadeva, otherwise, Brahmadeva has no temple or anything.... Sometimes Brahmadeva also incarnated, but He only takes forms. In our evolutionary process, He has taken different forms. He came on this Earth in different ways.... He created also an atmosphere of many great prophets around Himself so that they could preserve the dharma of this universe.... Of course, Brahmadeva is the one who is the creator, who has created this universe and who is the one who is busy still creating and doing lots of things for you people.... The right side is what you call the Brahma’s, Brahmadeva’s creation and the Brahma Shakti, as they call it. This is the power of Brahma that is flowing through you. We call it the power of the spirit, it is true, but the power of the spirit flows on your central nervous system.... It is the most important thing, that the intellect has to leave its limitedness to the unlimited intelligence which covers the whole universe. That is the Brahma Shakti described. That is the all- pervading power of God. That is the power of the love of God. (Shri Krishna Pujas 1986 & 1994 and 18 May 1981 and 20 February 1986)

Brahma is the creator god in the Trimurti of Hinduism. He has four faces, looking in the four directions. Brahma is also known as Svayambhu (self-born), Vāgīśa (Lord of Speech), and the creator of the four Vedas, one from each of his mouths.

Brahma, along with Vishnu and Shiva, is part of a Hindu Trinity, however, ancient Hindu texts mention other trinities of gods or goddesses which do not include Brahma.

While Brahma is often credited as the creator of the universe and various beings in it, several Puranas describe him being born from a lotus emerging from the navel of the god Vishnu. Other Puranas suggest that he is born from Shiva or his aspects, or he is a supreme god in diverse versions of Hindu mythology. Brahma, along with Vishnu and Shiva, is also viewed as a different form of Brahman, the ultimate formless metaphysical reality, and cosmic soul in Hinduism.
