Krsna Directing the Creation

The initial creator of the material world is the Supreme Lord Himself. It is said in Bhagavad-gita (9.10): “Only under the superintendence of the Supreme Lord does material nature appear to be the cause of all creation, maintenance, and dissolution.” He brings about the creation of Brahma, who becomes the subsequent creator empowered by the Lord.

Four-headed Brahma is the first living being. He took birth from the lotus flower generated from the abdomen of Garbhodakasayi Visnu, one of the three purusa expansions of the Supreme Lord in the material creation.

Before Brahma took up the task of creation, he prayed to the Lord for creative energy, “May the Supreme Lord be merciful towards me so that I may be empowered with the introspection to create, for I am also one of the surrendered souls who are dear to the Lord. I pray only to engage in His service in the creation of the material world, and I pray that I not be materially affected by my works. Thus I may be able to give up the false prestige of being the creator.”

Any person authorized by either the Lord or by His bona fide representative is already blessed, as is the work entrusted to him.
