PUSHKAR - RAJ
The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma

Again on some other occasion star-crossed, he fell out with Siva. Exasperated, Siva plucked out one of his five heads with his sharp nail. When tempers returned to normalcy, Siva, realising the gravity of sin-Brahmahatya, made Bhupradakshana dipping in sacred waters and sipping thirtha in every shrine and with the kapala-skull bowl in his hands; and only in Kasi his kapala disappeared in token of dissolution of sin. The present Kapala Thirtha stands in proof of this incident and also publishes to the world that Brahma had five heads prior to this ill-fated anecdote. Though they left some dark spots on his adorable form and immaculate career, he is venerated as the first created and also the Creator of world. Moreover, he imparted Brahma Vidya to sage Atharvan and the highest knowledge to Narada. In addition to this, he claims the  discipleship of Devendra and Virochana, an eminent celestial denizen. Apart from this, almost all the theories of world creation are attributed to him. He is called the Pitamaha, and Puranas and Upanishads eulogized him as the highest Brahman endowed with several powers. He created the worlds after the great Pralaya and it is from him the Vedas emerged and also many mahamantras. Hence the first place among the Trio. The three-gunas-Rajas, Sattva and Tamas are represented by the Trimurti-Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra, and as such he stands for Rajasaguna Prayers are offered first to him both by asuras and sums too.
