Upon his birth huge flames leap up from the earth reaching to the heavens. Later he marries Dewi Saraswati, the daughter of Hyang Pancaweda, who is renowned for her beauty.

Sang Hyang Brama has kedondongan eyes, a refined, pointed nose and closed mouth. He wears a crown as the mark of a puissant deity. He wears a keris, but does not wear it in the ordinary fashion [i.e., inserted between the folds of a sash at the back of the wearerÂ’s waist], but inserted in front because of the long jacket which all gods wear.7)
