I belive that Brahma is the god of hindhu.It is standing for every where.Especially it is seeing by a baby.

here goes my analysis:
Emerson has very beautifully summarised the entire Bhagvath Gita in this poem.Brahma here refers to that universal energy that is behind this entire creation, that which is indestructible. Call it God, Big mindconsciousness, Self, Paramatman, Nature, Light..
and thta big mind is speaking to us, revealing itself that shadow and light are in fact same, ( opposite values are complementary) and my favourite bit is Find me.. all of us need to seek the brahma within us :)
the doubter and the doubt being one is basis for all the indian text. the actor and teh act is one, the dancer and the dance is one..when that happens there is true union ..( that is the actual meaning of yoga, union) If you are into any art form, you will realise at some point, there is a space where you becoem one with music, that is when you ar ein touch with the cosmos or the brahma
for more understanding of the poem, you may need to do sudarshan kriya ( the awesomest process ever invented by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar) in workshops conducted by the Art of Living :D
