brahma_god_of_creation_by_molee-d4tkg58

follow url Brahma – god of creation 

Brahma the divine procreator and the one who was born out of the golden egg known as Hiranyagarbha.This is same as the big bang theory where the entire universe has come from one dense singular mass.the expansion(or bang) of the universe is known as one day of Brahma and the collapse of the universe is known as one night of Brahma.in Vedas the entire universe collapses in the distant future and is again created through the big bang and this process happens for about 100 Brahma years after which Brahma dies.and after another 100 years of Brahma’s death he is again reborn and the process continues.the best thing is that in hinduism the universe is eternal in reality, and it agrees with the concept of parallel universes as it is said that every single universe has a Brahma.
