In the "Rig Veda," one of the sacred Vedic Sanskrit hymns, Prajapati is described as the first god and creator of all other gods and beings. He was identified with the god, Brahma, and, by some, it was believed that Prajapati was Brahma. The story in the Vedas states that Prajapati was created in the form of a golden egg and, once hatched, he used his first three breaths to create the god of fire (Agni), the god of lightning (Indra) and the sacred plant, soma. He created planets, seasons, air, earth and sky. He had a daughter named Usas, the goddess of the dawn, and, through her, he evolved into the father of all living beings. Some people believe that Vishnu and Krishna are Prajapati's reincarnates, but a greater belief is still that Prajapati is Brahma.
