Tamil text made me understand Brahma Sahampati

Brahma Sahampati who was a Buddha Kassapa follower who said that he developed the senses which was exactly what Indra represents to Indians. For example in this text from Tamil says the following,

Tituvalluvar uses the story Indra and Ahalya to illustrate that seers are greater than Indra when it comes to the control of senses (Kural 25)

I don’t know if this was a tradition all over India but it’s from Tamil Nadu text which is the region of Pre-Theravada school


Thiruvalluvar. Interesting, this guy’s quotes (Thiru-Kural)are all over the place; in buses and government buildings in Tamil Nadu. Children are made to read them in Tamil class.
