WHAT IS INDIAN MYTHOLOGY ?
Indian mythology is a supreme evidence-taker of its rich estate, which enriches it and makes it distinctive in the whole world. Indian mythology is literature, poetry and plays that tell elaborative stories, rituals and symbols of our culture and guide us throughout our entire life.
From the very beginning time all the mythological stories have been passed from generation to generation by the words of mouth only. But after the creation of literature, it was carefully stored as scriptures.
To understand What is Indian Mythology, we should first understand the meaning of ‘myth’.
The earliest reliable information about Indian dates to the time of creation of the RIG-VEDA(2000-1000 BC) containing hymns to the Vedic Gods.
No Mythology is firmed anchored to a shore immovable. It is like a deep sea where every wave has countless meaning and possibilities. It talks large Mythology of controlling our mind and our desires to go ahead and lead strong lives.
Overall, Indian Mythology that not only consists the hygienic scriptures like THE RAMAYAN,THE MAHABHARATA,THE BHAGWAT GITA but also involves the rich ideology like BUDDHISM,JAINISM which has its own perspective towards life. It shows the path to people how to live a better life .

According to my own viewpoint, Indian Mythology has three milestone scriptures that tells us such things-:
1-THE RAMAYANA-what to do in life (The Amar Chitra Katha)
2-THE MAHABHARATA-what not to do in life
3-THE BHAGWAT GITA-how to lead a better life
So, if one can go through the Indian Mythology properly he can get a peaceful and happy life.
- Brahma -The creator
- Vishnu -The preserver
- Shiva -The destroyer
In Indian mythology they are the baseline of everything, from a small thing on earth to the whole cosmic system.
- O (Brahma)
- O (Vishnu)
- O (Maheshwar)
They are mentioned as ‘O’ because O has no starting or ending point. It is infinite. Likewise the Tridev also has no starting or ending point to describe. So, as the Tridev are the superior Gods in Indian Mythology we should know about them in brief.
LORD BRAHMA :
Lord Brahma is considered as the creator of the entire universe along with himself. According to Hindu mythology, Brahma created himself in the golden egg (Hiranya Garbha) and then he created the universe, earth, creatures and everything that we see on it.
Brahma is a the God with four heads that refers to 4 yugas and his weapon is Brahmastra (that may be Nuclear or atom bomb in modern age) and he also appears with Japamala and Kamandalu in hand during each span of time during meditation.
But unfortunately Brahma is not so popular god in mankind and his honor is dwindled by the glorious stories of Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva.
Lord Brahma’s spouse name is Mata Saraswati who is worshipped as the ‘Ganga of knowledge’. Only few temples are there in India that is dedicated to Lord Brahma and amongst all Puskar Temple in Rajasthan is the oldest one.
