Join Clara for a lecture on Brahma, the God of Creation. This short video includes the myth, mantra, and questions to embody Lord Brahma.
The Mythology of Brahma:
Brahma created the universe that we experience. He is born out of Vishnu’s navel, in a lotus flower. He slowly opens his eyes and does not recognize or understand what he sees. He sees nothing but red petals as he looks to the North, South, East, and West.
He opens his eyes that looks skyward and sees blue. He asks himself, Who am I? Where am I? Where do I come from? What am I here to do?
He looks outward for answers and sees none. So he closes his eyes and looks inward. Through his mind’s eye, he goes deeper into the flower and the lotus. He goes down the stem and into the roots.
From the roots, he melts down into the water, where the lotus flower takes hold. This lotus flower is the ocean of continuousness. He realizes that the ocean of consciousness encompasses all things. He remembers who he is and why he is here: to create the universe.
Anchored in his connection to the ocean of consciousness. He goes through the roots, up the stem of the flower, and into his body seated at the hear of the lotus. He opens his eyes and remembers who he is and what he is here to do.
The gift of this practice is to remember who we are, where we are, and how we came to be. May this practice remind you of what you are here to do.
