Bhramha’s Disciple Can Create All Things

This entry is part 38 of 98 in the series Shakyamuni's Fables

Bhramans say that the Great bhrahma was both father of the world and creator of all things. One of the Great bhrahma’s disciples once said he also had the power to create things. He was too stupid to be wise.

To the great bhrahma, he said, “I can create everything.”

The Great Brahrna replied, “Don’t talk like that. You can’t. Since you don’t listen to me, I wonder how you do it.”

After seeing what his disciple had creased, the Great bhrahma said, “The man’s head that you have made is too big and the neck too thin. The hands are too long and the arms too bony.

The feet are too small and the legs too fat. It looks like a Pisacah devil.”

Through the Great bhrahma’s words, we should realize that human beings are created by their own deeds resulting from Karma and not by the power of the Great bhrahma.

Buddha’s preaching is not ambiguous. As they preach the Eightfold Noble Path, they cling
neither to the view of total annihilation nor that of permanence. On the contrary, the heretics
do cling to the view of annihilation and permanence. They cheat the world by performing
ceremonies and creating images. What they preach really is not Buddhism.
