There is a contrasting description of the creator of the universe. In Devi Purana, it is mentioned that Devi is the creator of the universe, and everything emanates from her.

In Gita, Krishna said that he is the creator of the universe, and everything emanates from him. He also showed his Viswaroopa form to Arjuna.

So, who is the true master/creator of the universe?

If this theory is viewed from the scientific angle, Devi (or Shakti/energy) has to be the master of the universe. And all matter has evolved from her. As we know, mass evolves from energy through the E = mc2 formula (Albert Einstein).

  • Devi and Krishna are considered as a form of supreme brahman. It doesn't matter from whom everything emanates because they are one and the same

Actually,Lord Brahma had created the universe and that's why it is also called Brahmand. Lord Brahma is considered as the creator of the world. But we did not worship him because Lord Shiva had given a curse to Brahma that nobody will worship him.Brahma is the creator of the universe and of all beings, as depicted in the Hindu cosmology. The Vedas, the oldest and the holiest of Hindu scriptures, are attributed to Brahma, and thus Brahma is regarded as the father of dharma. He is not to be confused with Brahman which is a general term for the Supreme Being or Almighty God. Although Brahma is one of the Trinity, his popularity is no match to that of Vishnu and Shiva. Brahma is to be found to exist more in scriptures than in homes and temples. In fact it is hard to find a temple dedicated to Brahma. One such temple is located in Pushkar in Rajasthan.
