  1. Thanks, but the link states that Brahman created Brahma, Vishnu and Siva, how is that? Also what is post-vedic development? And who is Brahman, Is it not a type of state and then why is it being given the status of the supreme lord? As it states: Brahman gives rise to the primordial being Hiranyagarbha that is equated with the creator God Brahmā. The trimurti can thus be considered a personification of Hiranyagarbha as the active principle behind the phenomena of the universe.
  2. The following text is what I have had read from a website, but I am confused and do not understand who Brahman is, and how is he the greatest Hindu deity? And how is Brahma the higher than Vishnu and Siva? Brahman – The absolute God of Hindus <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> “Brahman is the highest and most supreme divinity of the Hindus. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Brahma is the source, the seed and the creator of all beings in this world. He has many other names Hiranyagarbha … followers of Vaishnavism depict him as nabhija or the one who was born from the lotus flower that sprung from the navel of Vishnu. This is however a post-vedic development. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Brahma originated from Brahman, or rather Brahman became Brahma, just as he became Vishnu and Siva.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Brahman is the central theme of almost all the Upanishads.<o:p></o:p> Brahman is the indescribable, inexhaustible, omniscient,<o:p></o:p> omnipresent, original, first, eternal and absolute principle who is<o:p></o:p> without a beginning, without an end , who is hidden in all and who<o:p></o:p> is the cause, source, material and effect of all creation known,<o:p></o:p> unknown and yet to happen in the entire universe.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> He is not like the other gods either. He is incomprehensible even<o:p></o:p> to almost all the gods. And He chooses not to be worshipped in the<o:p></o:p> temples and other places of worship but in one's heart and mind<o:p></o:p> as the indweller of the material body and master of the senses,<o:p></o:p> the charioteer. He is too remote and incomprehensible to be<o:p></o:p> revered and approached with personal supplications although He is<o:p></o:p> the deepest and the highest vision mankind could ever conceive of<o:p></o:p> or attain.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Perhaps the exclusion was so evident and seemingly so intentional<o:p></o:p> that even Lord Brahma, the first among the Trinity and the first<o:p></o:p> among the created, was also simultaneously excluded from the<o:p></o:p> ritualistic worship, probably for the similarity in names.”<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p>
  3. Lord Swaminarayan is not a guru, he is God. Firstly when Lord Ram came upon earth he believed in Lord Shiva, in the same way when Lord Swaminaryan came upon earth he believd in Lord Krishna.
