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

I believe that the Brahma is Billy Mays posing as a Hindu god. He is
selling the bend n' swipe. He also likes 24 men in his pants at one time!
yeah i know thats a lot.

I personal think the poem means that if you sin against the Hindu gods you
will be slain and killed with the whip of justice, carried by Budda. He is
a level 84 meele and 75 defense. Alright lets own some noobs!!!
