Creation or Birth of Lord Brahmaji

God Brahma is the God of creation and referred to in many texts as self born- Swayambhu or unborn- aja. He is not created by anyone as he is self existent and the first cause of all and existing by his own intrinsically powers.

God Brahmaji is considered as the infinite and the source of all space, causation, time, forms and names, has many instructive and interesting designations. Lord Brahma is the first person who self born and is referred as uncreated creator- Swayambhu and is the single letter- eka aksharam "AUM", theologically.

Philosophically, Lord Brahma is also considered as the first demonstration of one’s cosmos or creation “ahankara” and cosmologically he is the golden embryo-hiranya garbha, the ball of fire from which the whole universe expands. All beings are his progeny as Lord Brahma is the Prajapati.

The forms of God Brahma

Hindu God Brahmaji is,

Pitamaha --  Patriarch
Vidhi -- Coordinator
Lokesha -- Master of the universe
Dhatru -- Sustainer
Viswakarma -- Architect of the world

The names of Lord Brahma

According to Mythology, Bhagwan Brahma is described as springing from the lotus (Kamala) flower that is grown from the navel (nabhi) of Lord Vishnu. That’s the reason that God Brahma is also well-known as Nabhija - navel born.

Hindu God Brahma has got the other name as Kanja - water born and the legend according to Purana is there behind this name. It is said that he was born in water. That seed was turned into the golden egg and later into the entire Universe of Lord Brahma.
