Brahma is one of the prominent Hindu Gods who is considered a creator of the universe. According to the Brahma Purana, he is the father of MANU (from Manu all human beings are descended). As per Purana, Brahma was born from the lotus-flower. As per a famous legend, Brahma was born in water, in form for a seed which turned into a golden egg. The one part of the egg gave birth to Brahma and the rest expended into Brahmand or Universe. Even though, he is a prominent God, he is not worshiped all around in India because he kept an evil eye on his daughter Saraswati under the influence of KAMDEVA.
According to Purana, from the naval of God Vishnu Brahma was born. Then from the eternal thoughts of Brahma Marichi was born. From the eyes of Brahma Atri was born, from his mouth Angiras, from his ears Pulstaya born, from his naval Pulah, from his hand Kritu born, from his skin Mahrishi Bhrigu born, from his PRAN Guru Vashisht born, from his finger Dach, from his shadow kandarv, from his lap Narad, from his desire Sanak, Sanandan, Sanatan, Sanatkumar, from his body Swaymbhuw, Manu and from his meditation Chitragupta.
Purana describes all Brahma’s sons as “Soul of Brahma”. Brahma’s four sons- Sanak, Sanandan, Sanatan and Sanatkumar were appointed to create the Universe but their ignorance in the work made Brahma furious. From his fire of anger, Ardhanariswar Rudra was born. Brahma divided Ardhanariswar into two groups- men and women. In the PRAJAPATYA KALPA, Brahma turned RUDRA into Swaymbhu Manu (the first man) and Satrupa (the first woman). They gave birth to Priyavart, Utanpad, Prasuti and Aakuti. Then Aakuti was married to Ruchi and Prasuti with Dach. Dach and Prasuti gave birth to 24 girls, out of which 13 married to Dharma and Mahrishi Bhrigu married to Khayati, Lord Shiva married to Sati, Marichi married to Sambhuti , Angira to Smriti, Pulsatya to Priti, Pulah to Chama, Kriti to Sannati, Atri to Ansuya, Vishist to Urja, Vahw to Swah and Pitaro to Swadha. They are considered the creator of human beings in the earth. It is Purana that helps to discover family tree of Lord Brahma.
