In the beginning, there was nothing, only an endless ocean. From the water emerged a golden egg. It broke open to reveal Brahma, who has created himself within it. Emerging from the egg, Brahma started to make the universe the earth, heaven, and human beings. But this was only the beginning of events that would take place on Brahma's earth.
The arrogant King Vena tyrannised over creation.
The earth herself, Bhoomi Devi, become barren and inhospitable. Later, the powerful Prachetas gave themselves up to meditation, abandoning the earth.
These stories from the Brahma Purana talk of the earth as it was, just after it was created, and of Brahma's role in the cycle of creation.
