Book Description

 In Hindu Mythology Brahma is renowned as the creator of the three worlds and of the system of rules (dharma) that holds them and their inhabitants together. This is a substantially revised edition of a book originally published in 1983 and it focuses on Brahma's role in mythology, his representation of worldly values (pravrtti) and his role as both disseminator of dharma and as its protector in conjunction with Visnu. It also examines evidence for his worship in ancient India and his significance in early Buddhist literature. Greg Bailey, formerly Reader in Sanskrit, is an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Arts, Social Sciences and Communications, La Trobe University, Melbourne. He has published translations and studies of the Ganesa Purana, Bhartrhari's Satakatrayam and books on early Buddhism and many articles on Sanskrit literature. At present he is working on social, literary and economic aspects of the relationship between early Buddhism and the Mahabharata.
