carries utmost significance yet in the history of
mankind there is only one temple that has been dedicated
to Lord Brahma. Lord Shiva has temples in every
nook and corner of the world but deity Brahma has
single temple of god Brahma is located at Pushkar
in India. Why is it so that only one temple is dedicated
to Lord Brahma? Being the Creator of the cosmos
we all owe our existence to god Brahma... yet there
is only one temple, why?
being nay every living being comes unto this world on its own. We never
get created of our own sweet will. Everything is unto god Brahma's hand. One cannot
be born on its own... all need the invisible hands of Lord Brahma to be born unto
mother earth. So is the belief. If that is so... the need to worship Brahma does
not seem to exist.

being nay every living being is not considered at the time of beginning of life...
why worship such a deity? This is the belief of every human being... the prime
reason why Brahma is not being worshipped world-wide to the extent we worship
Lord Shiva or other gods!
We worship one whom either we fear or consider involved in day-to-day affairs
of life. We human beings by nature are very selfish. We are controlled by our
senses and the mind
which often prompt us on the path of deceit and things unethical. We never worship
any god owing to reverence we have for that God.
go to the temples and worship God for we desire/want to avail of his services
in the times of need. Why else would a wanting human being lurch into a temple
or a church knowing well that the time could be better spent in material pursuits
Lord Brahma created the Cosmos and in the eyes of human beings that was the end
of his job. Why pray to him for he has nothing further to bestow on mankind. Every
human being lives a life of give and take. We never do things where returns are
not promised. Why pray
to god Brahma and spend our valuable time.

This creative attribute of god Brahma comes into play with the start of a new
cosmos... a new beginning. This happens after the dissolution
The end result of the dissolution of cosmos results in all souls atmans in the
cosmos uniting together in their pure from. This is the size of half a thumb as

of Almighty God... god Brahma (the size of half a thumb) explodes with a big
bang. And starts the formation of a new cosmos... a new entity altogether.
God Brahma has served its purpose. A new cosmos has begun its cosmic journey.
The manifest creative form of life is what god Brahma is all about! We must all
with bowed hands pray to God Almighty for we all owe our existence to god Brahma.
