Brahma

Brahma is the creator of the Universe and the god of wisdom. He is one of the three most important Hindu gods.

Brahma is shown as a man with red skin wearing white robes and riding on a goose or a swan. He has four arms in which he carries the Vedas, and a combination of the following things: a sceptre, a spoon, a string of beads, a bow and a water jug.

There are many different stories about Brahma's birth. One story is that Brahma hatched from a floating golden egg. Another story is that he was born from a lotus which grew out of Vishnu's navel.

Brahma created his consort who is known by several names: Satarupa, Savitri, Sarasvati, Gayatri and Brahmani.
