Brahma in the Rigveda

References to Brahma in the oldest parts of the Rigveda are relatively scarce compared to other deities. While there are hymns that mention the divine aspects of creation, the explicit mention of Brahma as a distinct deity is less prominent in the Rigveda.

The concept of Brahma as the creator deity and the supreme cosmic power became more pronounced in later Hindu texts and traditions, particularly in the post-Rigvedic period.

It’s important to note that the Rigveda contains a rich tapestry of hymns and philosophical ideas, and different hymns may emphasize different deities or concepts. The eternal parentage and divine relationships described in the Rigveda reflect the ancient Vedic understanding of the cosmos and the divine forces that govern it.
