Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

I thought Brahma was the creator. Does Brahma create this world, or does Krishna?

Krishna Himself doesn't have to "do" anything; He's the supreme enjoyer, the emblem of eternity, knowledge, and bliss. He arranges for others to work according to their qualifications and desire to serve Him. He's always engaged in loving pastimes—lilas—with His devotees, while Brahma is the person who actively carries out Krishna's desire to create the material universe.

First, Krishna simply desires that there be creation. He expands Himself into Vishnu forms, then Brahma appears from Vishnu (see Srimad-Bhagavatam, 3.8). Brahma, as a faithful servant of Krishna, then prays to Krishna for inspiration and creative energy before beginning his task.
