differing moral principles, greatness, and miracles. The three gods are
directly responsible for human welfare; they are collectively called "Tree

the Creator of all things of the world. He is the "Sayampoo" meaning one
who originates himself. He is cool-tempered and possesses the highest
moral principles. He is full of kindness, mercy, sympathy, and
impartiality. These four precepts comprise the "Conscientious Behaviour"
corresponding to Buddhist teaching which instructs Buddhists of the four
Dharma. Besides creating the world, Brahma also creates heaven and human
The origin of Brahma is a rather complicated story because each legend has
its own version. Some say that Brahma originated inside a golden egg; some
say that He originated inside a lotus sprouting up from Vishnu's navel
while the latter was sleeping on the back of the Naga King at Kasean
Ocean; some say that Brahma is the split-up person of Vishnu at the time
he was to create the world. Nevertheless, the version of Masanapurana is
the least complicated and easiest to remember. According to this legend,
Brahma a.k.a. "Ahpawa" split Himself into two persons after originating.
One person is male who is He Himself while the other person is female

animals, ogres, and all plants of this world.
has a red torso; is four-headed or four-faced. Brahma has four hands: one
hand carries a walking stick, one carries two
spoons, another carries a pot, and the last one carries a bible. A bead
string hangs from His neck. He is armed with a bow called Paraweeta and
has a hansa (a white horse in the version of the Lama sect story) as the
beast of burden. The abode of Brahma is called Brohmbharuenatha situated
in Brahma world. In the Tripoom Praruang it is stated
that the Brahma abode is higher than heaven and Brahma is divided into
many types viz Material Brahma and Non-material Brahma. The Material
Brahma has 16 levels : Parishabhum Brahma, Parohithabhum Brahma,
Mahabrahmabhum, Parithabhum, Appamanabhum, Ahpassarabhum, Parithasupabhum,
Appamanasupabhum, Supa-kinahabhum, Wehappabhalabhum, Asanyeebhum,
Awihabhum, Atapahabhum, Suthatsabhum, Suthatseebhum, and Akanitthabhum.
These 16 levels Brahma has only men and no women. The Brahma himself sits
The Non-material Brahma is even higher.
It has no matter but has only mind. There are all together 4 levels:
Akasayanjayathon, Winyananchayathon, Akinjanyayut, and Newasanyanayon.
Those who are to be born to be Brahma must have practised basic meditation
from Primary Chaan till Panjama Chaan. Who is to live in which Brahma
level depends on his/her Chaan practised in each activity.
The Brahma wife is Sarasawadee who was created by Brahma himself. Brahma
has good disposition: cool-tempered and gives
blessing to whoever asks for it. He is full of the four Dharma viz
kindness, mercy, sympathy, and impartiality and extends his benevolence to
all animals. In our Buddhist story there is a mention of Brahma at the
time He invited the Lord Buddha to preach the teachable animals. At the
time the Lord
Buddha rose to heaven to preach his mother who lived in the second level
heaven, it was Indra and Brahma who accosted him on his way back to earth.
Sarasawadee the Brahma wife is held by brahmins as the goddess of the
intellect and technical matters.
She is the mother of Phravet and invented the Thevanakree alphabets,
Sarasawadee is a beautiful woman with soft-white torso. She has four
hands: on her right she carries a bouquet for worshipping Brahma in one
hand and a palm-leaved bible in another, on her left is a pearl necklace
called Sivamala in one hand and a harp in another. She is usually
enthroned on a lotus dais or a peacock back and sometimes uses the hansa
as her beast of burden.
Brahma together with Sarasawadee helped create everything on this earth
and Sarasawadee was the creator of the Thevanakree alphabets and Sanskrit
language. She also loves and supports the Arts and Sciences. Hotels in Chaweng Beach area
