The Concept of God in Hinduism and Who is supreme consciousness?

God is the universal word used all over the world to define what is supernatural unknown consciousness. He is shapeless, formless omniscient who is worshipped in a various way. If we closely observe the term, God It is made up of 3 Characters G - O - D.

G - The one who is a giver.
O - The one who is an operator.
D - The one who is a Destroyer.

It means he has three major duties
1) Giving
2) Operation
3) Destruction

This concept is beautifully defined in Hinduism as Brahma Vishnu Mahesh story commonly known as Trimurti ( or Trinity)

The divine entity who defined duties to trinity is Maheshwar which means MAHA-ISWAR. Let's understand the term Maha-Iswar more clearly.

MAHA - Supreme
Iswar - Consciousness

The term Maha-Iswar is associated with SADASHIVA which means eternal Shiva. This is the Brahma Vishnu Mahesh story which will take you to the journey of this cosmos creation and how responsibilities get defined by Sadashiva to Trinity.

According to Shiv Puran, Lord Shiva history is regarded as the Sada-shiv, Supreme consciousness. He is the one who is not bounded by the wheel of time and Karma. He manifested himself as Mahakaal simply known as Rudra.

The one who is unborn, immortal, who don't have any start or end. This is the story of the beginning, when there was void with no time, no light, nothing existed. Cosmos was filled with emptiness and darkness. There was only certain kind of voidness.

The only thing that existed that time was divine consciousness termed as Sada-shiv the Universal Truth. Sada-shiv is limitless and shapeless,and undefined null. Afterward, The feminine energy of Sada-shiv originated from Sadashiv. Sadashiva termed his feminine energy as Shiva.She gave salutation to Sada-shiv.


The Supreme consciousness Sada-shiv told to shiva. Shiva, I didn't create you, you were already present there, you are my energy, I am in you and you are in me. Shiva as feminine energy replied to sadashiva

"Oh my lord, you are the Supreme source of energy".
(SadaShiv -Male energy source) - (Shiva - feminine energy source).

Sada-shiv replied, yes I am the Supreme sourceof energy but my strength is proof of your existence. After this conversation between them, Sada-shiv and Shiva became so close as thecosmic couple. Sada-shiv as man and Shiva as his wife. In the initial phase, they created elementary elements, They created two words beginning and end which were complementary to each other. With the combined decision with his feminine energy Shiva | Shakti (energy),both decided to create the third energy.

From the seat of mentation consciousness of huge Ocean; where the sweetest tide of thoughts originates. It isthe place where the truth is the valuable gem. From that depth of mentational ocean, a man appeared on a bed of huge snake.His charm was so cosmic, his glow was spreading all over.

His crown was covered with Gold and diamonds. He wore a golden robe which was decorated with various gems. There were so much solace and calmness on his face. His eyes were so beautiful that they wereresembling with Lotus.

Lord Vishnu

Brahma Vishnu Mahesh story

In a sweet and melodious voice, he asked "Who am I and what are the orders for me? " God appeared in mystic form and replied to him. "Since you are omniscient, you will be known by the name of VISHNU.

You will have more names and you will collect all knowledge fromAusterity". After that mystic voice, Lord Vishnu began his penance. He did the hardest and longest penance, due to the impact of his penance, various water fountain originated from his body. After that 24 elements appeared from Lord Vishnu body.

Lord Vishnu fulfilled the voidness of universe with divine water that came from his body. Lord Vishnu went down and slept in the bed of huge snake (Sheshnaag)surrounded with divine water that came from his body.

While sleeping so many epochs have been passed. The time came when his deep inner energy awakens and Lord Vishnu opened his lotus eyes. The entire universe was reacting with each other. As he observed these phenomena inside him, a lotus began to grow from his navel part.

It was such a huge lotus flower, with beautiful petals. This beautiful Lotus had the shine of million suns, which was spreading in all the directions. A broad energy entered into lotus and shape of Lord Brahma appear on it. As he revolved his head in four directions, one head appeared from each direction. The fifth head appeared topover his head.


Trimurti establishment

Brahma first meet with Lord Vishnu Brahma observed himself alone, surrounded by divine sea water. Lord Brahma was unaware of his identity, He didn't know his origin and from where he came? High tides were shaking the lotus in which Brahma was sitting. He found himself isolated on the lotus which made him scared, so he decided to enter inside the lotus stem.

He tried several epochs to reach out to the origin of lotus stem after getting tired; he returned to his initial place. Now God appeared in mystic voice again and said him to perform Austerity for gaining all knowledge. Lord Brahma did penance of more than 100 divine years.

After his successful penance, divine consciousness entered on Lord Brahma mind, which made him realize the actual truth. Whom he failed to discover the long time ago. Now Lord Brahma saw Lord Vishnu sleeping over huge Snake (Sheshnaag) on the divine sea, and Vishnu glory was lighting the entire universe.

Brahma and Vishnu first meet.

Lord Vishnu was looking so great over Sheshnaag, his appearance was so divine. Afterward, Lord Brahma closely viewed Lord Vishnu navel, from where his lotus has come out, in which he was sitting. Lord Brahma had the ecstatic feeling after realizing the all.

With such ecstasy, Brahmadeva asked Vishnu with humbleness " Who are you and Who I am?"

Notice - Narayan is the another name of Lord Vishnu. Sage Narad is one of the biggest devotees of Vishnu. He keeps chanting the name of Narayan all the time while roaming all the three realms.

Vishnu replied with smile "Pitamah, I welcome you, Don't get scared, whatever you will ask of me I 'll give you."

Due to Rajo trait, Lord Brahma heart got filled with egoistic thoughts and he replied to Lord Vishnu.

Brahma - "Who are you to boon me, I am omniscient Bharma. Pitamah (grandfather of all) who took self-birth." Lord Visnu - "Pitamah, I know your inner morph, that's the aim you came from the lotus, which came out of my navel. But it is not your fault, you became the victim of my Maya. You can understand me as the ultimate truth."

After listening to these words, Lord Brahma got filled with extreme anger, He started disputation argument with Lord Vishnu. That time (Sada-shiv) appeared as endless, huge Fire pillar. It was the first time when Brahma Vishnu Mahesh was together. Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma got amazed by viewing Sada-shiv formless fire pillar. Sadashiv as fire pillar ordered both to reach end part of the pillar.

sada shiv

In the anxiety of reaching out the corner of the fire pillar, Lord Brahma decide to move upwards in fire pillar and Lord Vishnu decided to move downwards. They continued their journey to several epochs but still the edge of the fire pillar was not there. Ultimately they returned to the starting point from where they had started their journey of finding the edge of fire pillar.

While returning to the initial place, Lord Brahma once decided to accept his failure of not reaching the end of the fire pillar. Then he saw a kaytki flower falling down. Lord Brahma tried to convince kaytki flower to witness that he reached to the edge of fire pillar eventually kaytki flower agreed to lie in front of Lord Vishnu that Lord Brahma reached the edge of huge fire pillar.

When Lord Brahma and kaytki flower reached to initial place and meet to Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu accepted that he had no luck to find out the edge of fire pillar but Lord Brahma lied to Lord Vishnu that he reached to the edge of the fire pillar. Lord Vishnu accepted Lord Brahma words because Lord Brahma had a proof in his hand as the flower of kaytki.

Sada-shiv knowingly angered on Lord Brahma for his lie of reaching out the edge of fire pillar. Sada-shiv cursed Lord Brahma to be not worshipped in all three realm for his lies. Sada-shiv also punished flower of kaytki for being a false witness by declaring renouncement to be not accepted in worship.

Flower of kaytki requested to Sada-shiv that his existence will become useless after such punishment. Sada-shiv told to the flower of kaytki that since you are not used as offering to me in worship, still you will be used for decorative purposes. Feeling of delicacy entered in Lord Vishnu and Bharma. Sada-shiv told to them "I am the Bharma, I am the lord, I can be worshipped in formless form as Linga which is the manifestation of endless fire pilar known as Sada-shiv. Or I can be worshipped as Mahadev in a known form or state".

Origin of Rudra from Sadashiv

Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma asked Sada-shiv to take shape so that they could worship him. Sada-shiv said in the mystic voice

"I will take shape as Rudra which will be known from the name of Mahadev or shiva which will be equivalent to my Sadashiv morph. My Rudra form will take over the Destroyer part. There will be no difference between Vishnu and Shiva. The one who will worship Vishnu will actually worship Shiva and the one who will worship Shiva will actually worship Vishnu - Sadashiv".
By stating that Sada-Shiv ordered Lord Brahma to work for the creation of the world with elementary elements which was created by Sada-shiv and shiva. Lord Vishnu accept the work of Preserver.

Later on, Sada-shiv took shape of huge five headed Rudra and each mouth created a nad (universal vibration) which termed as Om, Au? , Sanskrit- ?. These five universal vibrations collectively created panchakshari mantra " Om Namah Shivaya". Sada-shiv disappeared but Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma started worshipping Sada-shiv as Rudra Shiva by chanting Om Namah Shivaya. After returning to their realm Lord Brahma started creation process and Lord Vishnu took over his preserver responsibility. Later on, Rudra took shape from Sada-Shiv and controlled the balance of trimurti (trinity) . Rudra is auspicious and commonly known from the name of lord Shiva who is unborn and immortal.
