Doubt about Lord Brahma

Updated on December 11, 2018 in General

Namaskaram Swamy,
Swamy used to say in many upanyasams that Bagavan Srimannarayana created Lord Brahma and asked Him to chant the four Vedas with His four heads in order to carry on His work of shrishti. Azhwars too refer to Lord Brahma as Naanmugan in their pasurams.
It is also known that Lord Siva removed one of Lord Brahma’s heads and was relieved of it through the grace of Sri Badri Narayana Perumal.

Kindly clarify these doubts Swamy.

1. When Bagavan Srimannarayana created Lord Brahma from His naabhi kamalam, did Lord Brahma have four heads or five heads?

2. When did the incident of Lord Siva removing one of Lord Brahma’s heads take place?

I kindly request Swamy to explain

Sri Ramanuja Munaye Namaha,

Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swami Guruve Namaha,


Dear Venkhatesh BhagavAta,


Look’s like this question that BhagavAta has posted on 05-Dec’18 is exactly Duplicate of BhagavatA’s previous post on 09-Nov’18 as in below link. However, due to Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swami’s busy schedule, adiyen believe the initial question posted on 09-Nov’18 would have got slipped from Swami’s eyes. Hence, after waiting for 2 weeks, adiyen thought of referring Swami’s Upanyasams/Granthams on 21-Nov’18 as in below link.


We also received Sri Velukkudi krishnan Swami’s Direct Blessings on 22-Nov’18 as in the below link (BhagavAta’s previous thread posting), by Swami “Filling in the Blanks” that adiyen couldn’t pick-up from Swami’s upanyasams/Granthams.


Please check the below link, if BhagavAta has received the “Yatha Vasthu Sthithi” answer based on Pramaanam (Swami’s upanyasmas/granthams) for the very same question that BhagavatA has posted earlier on 09-Nov’18.


Adiyen Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Dasan,

Uyya Oraey Vazhi UdayavAr ThiruvAdi,

Sarvam Sri Krishna Kudumbham.

Sarvam SriKrishnarpanam Asthu.

Thank you so much for taking efforts to clarify the doubt.

Through Bagavata’s explanation and through Swamy’s answer, I understand how Lord Brahma’s four heads were formed and also about the fact that Lord Siva plucked the fifth head after Tripura samharam and got relieved of His sin by the grace of Srimannarayana.

Can you please explain as to why and when Lord Brahma’s fifth head was formed?

Adiyen is not aware of Tripura samharam incident.  Please highlight.

I kindly request Swamy to consider these doubts and clarify them.

Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha,
Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swami Guruve Namaha,


Dear BhagavAta,


All our Sath Vishaya Knowledge is received from Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swami’s Pravachanams and Anugraham. LIke Swami is the Speaker (Chaitanyam Udaya Swami), and the Microphone (Achit Jada Porul) only transmits what Swami’s says to all, same way, adiyen is only a Tool/Karuvi (Microphone) that regurgitated what Swami has said. So KIndly don’t say, that “Through Bagavata’s explanation and through Swamy’s answer” cleared BHagavAtas doubht. All are actually Swami’s answer, since Adiyen only collectively put together and SHARED/Regurgitated with BHagavAta, what adiyen has heard in Swami’s Different upanyasam topics at Different times.


Please check this link for Tripura Samharam and Brahma’s 5 heads references.
