Brahma or Brahma (Sanskrit: ब्रह्मा brahmā) is the first Person of the Trimurti. He is referred to as "The Creator".

Brahma is the first being to be created at the beginning of each cosmic cycle (or kalpa), he is considered the architect of the universe, the father of all beings.

Brahma is depicted with four heads, four faces, four arms and four legs. Each head recites one of the four VEDA.

In his four hands he holds:
a glass containing water,
used to create life;
a rosary used to keep track of the passage of time;
the text of the Vedas;
a lotus flower.

At the beginning of all time, Brahma created not only the universe, but also the female aspect identifiable in the divinity of Shatarupa. Brahma immediately fell in love with her. Shatarupa moved in various directions to avoid Brahma's intense attention. But every time he moved, Brahma developed a new head. Thus, Brahma developed five heads, one opposite to the other. In order to control Brahma, Shiva cut off his topmost head; he realized that Shatarupa was Brahma's daughter, having been created by him, and that Shatarupa herself was a mistake of Brahma himself who was now obsessed with her attractiveness. So Shiva decided to cool the cult, the veneration of Brahma due to his "wicked" behavior. For this reason only Vishnu and Shiva continue to be venerated while Brahma is almost always ignored. Due to this incident, Brahma is recited in the four Vedas in his attempts at repentance.
