Discussion-1. "about Brahmaji" ...
In Samskrtam, the word "Brahma" is used both in the masculine and in the neuter genders.
In the masculine usage, it means that the deity in the Trinity, who is the Creator of the worlds of names and forms.
When the word is used in the neuter gender, as "Brahmam."
It means the "Supreme Reality" out of which everything came out including "Brahmaji" himself.
Here Sruti says that when the very Creator manifested out of the "Pure Consciousness" as a specific creative urge, it was not the birth of an individual who is the product of the male and female seeds.
Bramaji is not a product of sperm and ovum, but He is Self-born ( Svayambhu) :
He is a manifestation of the creative urge in the Reality.
He, it is said, was the b first to give out the great Knowledge of "Brahma Vidya" to his son, Atharva.
A father can never consciously deceive his own son by giving him a knowledge that is false and stupid.
However cruel we may be, none of us would dare to advise our own child that "fire is cold to the touch!"
