    Mahabharata query

    Near the beginning of Vana Parva, ch. 3 page 12 of the PDF of the Ganguli version is this:

    "Thou art called Indra, thou art Vishnu, thou art Brahma, thou art Prajapati. Thou art fire and thou art the subtle mind. And thou art lord and the eternal Brahma."

    There are no diacriticals in this PDF, so are both Brahmā or is last one the principle Brahma?

    Basically, there is not even one buddha, only great wisdom. Bodhisattva Hsuan Hua

    Re: Mahabharata query

    hariḥ oṁ

    namasté & svāgata te

    त्रिमूर्तिः trimūrtḥ or ‘three forms’ - brahmā , viṣṇuḥ , śivaḥ.
    Now brahma = brahman = the Supreme Absolute. Compare and contrast brahman to brahmā, part of the trimūrtḥ and is authored with the creative process.

    .. and on a personal note, I am in hopes that you will join our HDF custom of greeting the reader. It is a small thing,
    but sets the tone of the post. Thank you.

    iti śivaṁ
    यतस्त्वं शिवसमोऽसि
    yatastvaṁ śivasamo'si
    because you are identical with śiva
