Brahman – Ultimate reality; the supreme being or God: divine consciousness that is the source of all life
Note: Brahma and Brahman are two distinct characters in the Hindu religion. Brahma refers to the four-faced god described in the religious texts of Hinduism, while Brahman is the Ultimate Reality, the supreme god.
"Bravo!" They shouted, and threw money (Brahman) at the god they revered and called the supreme being.
Brahman, also known as the 'Divine One' and the 'Ultimate Reality', is one of Hinduism's most fundamental beliefs.
Hindus believe that Brahman is beyond the material universe, while still existing in every particle of everything that lives.
Some Hindus think of Brahman is as 'Nirguna Brahman', which is the idea that Ultimate Reality (God) has no shape or form.
While people may find this a difficult idea to imagine, one way it is represented is through the Hindu aum or om symbol, which is used in meditation. Hindus believe that 'aum' is the sound that began the universe.
