Vishwakarma Caste’s all five gotras are divided into a total of 25 sub-clans (sub-clans).

Due to his fivefold division, he is also known as Panchala. He is said to follow the five Vedas (instead of the standard four), the fifth being “Pranava Veda”,
The Pranava Veda is a text that transforms the process of energy (brahmam) into matter itself (material world). In this lesson, pure energy or consciousness undergoes a process that can be seen as a mathematical sequence. This process can be applied by humans through the mathematical order of dance, music, poetry, architecture, and sculpture, and creates art in a way that causes the viewer, listener, resident to vibrate with those divine qualities. Which is like art. This Pranava Veda was identified by Brahmrishi Maya about 10,000 years ago. A known copy still exists today and it is written by Dr. of Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. V. Ganapati is in the hands of Sthapati, which is being translated into Tamil and English. Dr. V. A translation project is being sponsored by The America University of Myonic Science and Technology under the guidance of Ganapathi Sthapati.
Many people believe that Pranav refers to the sound AUM. In fact, Pranava comes from the roots Pirazh + Nava = Pranava. Turn / flip or turn into nine; Pranava means change in 8. 9. Brahmrishi says in the Mai Pranava Veda that consciousness multiplies itself in 8 units or pulses (units of time) of OM light and Om sound. A unit of TIME has 2 aspects, OM LIGHT and OM SOUND. Om Prakash divides itself into 8 light atoms which become the raw material for all visible forms. OM SOUND divides itself into 8 sound atoms that become the raw material for all aural forms.
Yatin Pirzhave Navamanevagi – Mamuni Mayan is the flipping or turn nine of 8.
This combination of 8 units of Light and Sound creates the ‘Three Gunas’, which later form the Five Elements or ‘Panch Bhutas’.
The entire process reveals a mathematical order that can be imitated for the upliftment of humanity.
Individuals from various gotras of Vishvabrahmanas use this mathematical sequence to create objects, forms – arts in their work that have a fixed frequency or vibration that emulates the positive qualities of Brahman.

History or Origin of Vishwakarma Caste

They both claim those special rights and have various privileges which they always enthusiastically accept and in some cases they are equal to the rank of Brahmins He also states that all priestly officials had appointed all priestly officials to act as Brahma priests. Krishna Rao says, “The most organized and efficient of the industrial classes were the Veerpanchal, which included goldsmiths, co-workers, blacksmiths, carpenters and rajasans. In the finest period of Indian art, especially between the eighth and ninth centuries, he claimed Done and gained a social place in society similar to Brahmins. The art of carving and sculpture has attained a high standard of development. They believe that they are accomplished only by the Panchalas and consider themselves Vishwakarma. History of India. These craftsmen had deep knowledge in the history of India as propagators of culture and religion. The intellectual influence was at least as great as that of the priest and writer, not just in terms of being creative and in terms of assimilation. .?Panchal is called the propagator of civilization, culture and religion because he was engaged in propagating Hinduism through his art throughout the world. Hal says, “The northern quarter of Pataliputra was assigned to Brahmins and some high craftsmen such as armor, iron and laborers in precious stones. The association of skilled artisans with Brahmins and Kshatriyas does not degrade craftsmanship in Indo-Arya society.” The art form is described in the Indian Aryan city or village as a functionary in religious ceremonies before exiting and is still intact as a caste indicator of some of the metal workers and carpenters in South India. There was a lot of importance. Only Vishwabrahma can hold the title of Jagat-Guru i.e. Guru in the whole world, which can be called Guru of Kamamalar world.
