Lord Brahma, one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus, created the universe but for this creation he needed assistance. He lacked in the creativity and knowledge of Arts and was seeking for a motivation. It was then that he gave a physical form to the Shakti, the female aspect of the universe. It was pure energy and strength that he carved into a woman, and she is known as Satarupa.
Satarupa is a compound of two Sanskrit words, ‘sata’ meaning hundred and ‘rupa’ means faces, forms, or incarnations. The sole energy of this universe is believed to be generated by Goddess Durga (Goddess of war and empowerment); thus Satarupa is one of her embodiment. She denotes all the forms of Durga in a single body.
Satarupa is known by many names like Sandhya, Sarasvati, Bharati, Brahmi, Vagdevi, Logos etc. She is the ultimate power. She praises and rewards the good and destructs and devastates the evil. She is the ultimate force to which every individual, be it man, God or celestial being bows down. She is also the ultimate beauty which led BrahmaBrahma
According to Hinduism, the whole creation is the work of Trimurti (the Hindu Trinity)... to commit the biggest mistake of his existence.
Brahma and Satarupa
According to MatsyaMatsya
Matsya Avatar was the first Avatar of Vishnu, among the Dashavatara... Purana (one of the oldest Hindu scriptures), Brahma was alone in the universe when he felt the need of a companion. He divided his body into two and created a female portion of himself, from himself.
Satarupa was extremely beautiful and such was her charm that Brahma, her creator, fell in love with her. He kept admiring her beauty and didn’t take her eyes off her. Brahma grew four heads in order to follow her in every direction. He didn’t let her off his sight even for a second.
To have some privacy, Satarupa jumped over Brahma, towards the sky. This was when Brahma grew his fifth head to look into the heaven. Lord ShivaShiva
Shiva is one of the Supreme Gods of Hindu Trinity that ... (one of the Supreme gods of Hindus, also known as the Destroyer) was observing this act with disgust. This was an incestuous act as Satarupa was born from Brahma, she was ethically his daughter whom he was supposed to protect and not become obsessed with.
Shiva became angry and cut Brahma’s fifth head. He also cursed him that he won’t be worshiped as a deity by humans. Therefore, we see that only the two Gods of the Hindu trinity, i.e., Shiva and VishnuVishnu
Vishnu is one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus and is a part of Hindu Trinity,.. (known as the Preserver) are prayed to but not Brahma. There are hardly any temples or shrines dedicated to his name nor do we see his idols placed in temples.
Brahma’s four heads recite the four Vedas Four ancient texts constituting the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature and the oldest scriptures of Hinduism(scriptures of Hinduism) continuously, in remorse.
To avoid Braham’s gaze in every direction, Satarupa started taking forms of various animals but Brahma followed her everywhere. She first turned herself into a cow, and Brahma turned himself into a bull. She kept changing her forms, and Brahma kept incarnating as the appropriate male counterpart. Satarupa continued till all kinds of animals came into existence, and this is how animal kingdom originated.
