The great cosmic lotos dream of Vishnu started again
when the cosmos had been dissolved and the vast
waters were agitated into whirlpools by the force of the wind.
While Om the transcendental sound vibration of Vishnu pervaded everything
the vast primordial ocean was brought forth and "a wondrous Golden Lotus, resplendent as the sun, which floated upon the lonely waters."The Lotus Flower's prominent fruit node rises like the Meru world mountain, the many petals radiate in all directions like the sky directions and symbolize the diversity of the countries and cultures that cluster around the world mountain. Thus, the lotus stem becomes the cosmic axis, rising from the primordial waters on which the earth rests.
Brahma the first-born living being appears from the golden lotus flower and is slowly aware of his position. He began to situate himself in its pericarp, but he could not see anything
because of the dense darkness. Brahma wanted to see by casting his glance
in four directions at once, and in so doing, he manifested four heads in the four directions.
Brahma, the original demigod, was situated in the lotus flower
that had emerged from the water. However, he could neither
factually understand the situation of the world nor of his own self.
1. scene - in a closed golden lotus - the 4 headed brahma (8 ears)
sitting in a posture for meditation, and by controlling his breathing he gradually
concentrated his consciousness by introspection taking the lotus position (lotus asana)
"Brahmā formed from his own immaculate substance a female who is celebrated under the names of Satarupā, Savitri, Sarasvati, Gāyatri, and Brāhmani.
Beholding his daughter, born from his body, Brahmā became wounded with the arrows of love, and exclaimed, How surpassingly lovely she is!' Satarupā turned to the right side from his gaze; but as Brahmā wished to look after her, a second head issued from his body.
As she passed to the left, and behind him, to avoid his amorous glances, two other heads successively appeared. At length she sprang into the sky; and as Brahmā was anxious to gaze after her there, a fifth head was immediately formed.
Brahmā then said to his daughter, 'Let us produce all kinds of animated beings, men, suras (gods), and asuras (demons). Hearing this, she descended, and Brahmā having espoused her, they withdrew to a secluded spot where they dwelt together for one hundred divine years.
1. In Matsya-Purana, Brahma, desiring to create the world, goes into meditation, whereupon his body divides into two halves : one male and the other female. Enraptured by his female half (who is Saraswati) Brahma desires her, mates with her and together they create the demigods... His transcendental value is not to be minimized, even though he exhibited a tendency to enjoy his own daughter. There is a purpose for the exhibition of such a tendency by Brahmā, and he is not to be condemned like an ordinary living entity. (Swami Prabhupada)
2. When Brahma undertakes the creation of the world through creative speech, the goddess Saraswati is born in his mouth or tongue.
3. Saraswati sprang from the forehead of her father, Brahma. Brahma - when he saw the beauty of Saraswati - desired her even though she was by logic his daughter. Saraswati disliked the attention Brahma focused on her and tried to escape from him, but whichever way she moved, Brahman grew a head in that direction to see her better. Even when she moved upwards, Brahman grew another head on top. And despite divine objection, he still married her. Vishnu and Shiva were so set against Brahma's marriage to Saraswati that they uttered a curse that henceforth Brahma would cease to be worshipped as a God by the faithful. In view of this, Goddess Saraswati has traditionally been worshiped in her individual capacity, as the patron Goddess of all knowledge and wisdom -without reference to her association with Brahma.
