Four headed Brahma statue.
Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva of the Hindu Trinity parallel the western concept of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit—the eternal Creator, Preserver and Destroyer.
Brahma embodies the divine desire that inspired the creation of the world. Vishnu conveys mercy and virtue to sustain the world. Shiva represents the sacred fire that destroys evil.
Brahma, as the Father figure and the First Person of the Trinity, is seen as the Immense Being—the Creator, Supreme Ruler, Lawgiver, Sustainer and Source of All Knowledge. Brahma is Godly omnipotence incarnate. His divine complement, or shakti, is Sarasvati, the active principle of Brahma. These divine lovers exemplify the masculine and feminine embodiment of the cosmic force.
