About The Book

In the beginning, there was nothing, only an endless ocean. From the water emerged a golden egg. It broke open to reveal Brahma, who has created himself within it. Emerging from the egg, Brahma started to make the universe the earth, heaven, and human beings. But this was only the beginning of events that would take place on Brahma's earth.

The arrogant King Vena tyrannised over creation.

The earth herself, Bhoomi Devi, become barren and inhospitable. Later, the powerful Prachetas gave themselves up to meditation, abandoning the earth.

These stories from the Brahma Purana talk of the earth as it was, just after it was created, and of Brahma's role in the cycle of creation.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
