Title. I want a book about Brahma. It can be in the form of a Gita like Shiva Gita or Bhagavad Gita or it can be in the form of a Purana.

Thanks.

    The Puranas like bramhanda, bramhakaivarta, maarkandeya, bhavishyat, vamana, braamha glorify Prjapati (Brahma), Agni and Saraswati.

According to the Matsya-Purana (53.68-69),

rAjaseshu cha mAhAtmyam adhikam brahmano viduh : Meaning: It is said that in the Rajasika Puranas, the glory of Brahmaa is preached.

According to the Padma-Purana (Uttara-Khanda 263, 81-84)

Brahmanda-Purana, Brahma-vaivarta-Purana, Vhavishya- Purana, Vamana-Purana and Braahma-Purana are Rajasika.

According to some other opinion, Skanda, Padma and Agni Puranas are also termed as 'Rajasika'.

Reference

You could also read the Hamsa-Gita here, which was told by Brahmaa taking the form of a swan. There are two Hamsa-Gitas by the way, the second one being a part of the Mahabharata and included in the Gita-Ganthravali by Satish Chnadra Mukhopadhyay.

  • The Hamsa Gita you have linked in your answer is told by Lord Vishnu in the form of a Swan to Brahma and Sanakadi Rishis; it forms a part of Uddhava Gita in the 11th Canto of Bhagavata Purana.

  • Haven't heard of the Mahabharata's Hamsa Gita; is that what you were referring to?

    @Surya, yes there's a Hamsa Gita in the Mahabharata too, told by Prajapati (Brahma) to the Sadhyas. You may check about it in my answer here
