The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma


This place also witnessed some other misfortunes of
Brahma. Another legend brings out Brahma's inglorious act that registers his further fall. It begins with a dispute between Brahma and Vishnu for supremacy. When, the argument reached the climax, suddenly there appeared a column of bright light between the two, and both inferred rightly too that it was Siva. listening to the two sides, Siva then asked them to find out the lower and upper ends of that luminous column. Vishnu taking the form of boar, started digging the ground to reach the lower end but could nut; returning confessed his inability. But Brahma, who went up on his mount, the Swan and lied on his return unashamedly, fabricating evidence with the aid of a Ketaki that was falling from the top. Siva on insisting him to give out the truth, he confessed and learning it he deprived him of his worship in temples with a terrible curse Thus he lost his honour due to his position in the Trinity also. Later, Brahma performed severe penance on the Gandamadana parvatha for expiation of sin. Soon his worship was restored and regular arid due honour was accorded. Pacified Siva solicited his services as Charioteer during his killing of lokabhayankara Tripura, when Vishnu turned himself into an arrow, with which Tripura was done to death.
