Brahma’s skull

Deep in snow hills is Brahma’s skull
In which he makes skulls for minds.

We have lost our minds holding skulls ,
Having held them too long on necks.

Now we offer living rice balls to men
Who had lost minds and their skulls.

(Brahmakapal (literally Brahma’s skull) in the Himalayas is where we invoke spirits of our ancestors to make ritual offerings to them.Brahma is the Creator God ,one of the Trinity with Vishnu the Preserver and Shiva the destroyer)
