The majority of the epic Ramayana and Mahabharata were composed during period 200 BC to 200 AD, and the Pali canon of Buddhist lore (Tripitaka) was formalized. In the face of declining influence, Brahmana accepted the profitable suggestion made by Gautama himself, that the sacrifice of alms-giving to holy men is preferable to animal sacrifice. The Buddhist assertion that Moksha can only be attained through true perception was also accepted, leading to a new form of Brahmin worship (Puja), involving direct sight (Darshana) of the deity and alms giving (Dakshina) to Brahmana. With their role in sacrificial ritual diminished, they retained the prestige position of public educators. Their technique of memorizing the sacred books had become the basis of learning, and Sanskrit was held close as the mysterious privilege of the Brahmana.
Village deities and legends were Sanskritized, and (by c. 50 BC) each was assimilated, according to characteristics, under one head of a new Brahmanic trinity, which deifies the three Gunas as:
Brahma (the unmanifest creator)
Vishnu (the protector of manifest creation)
Shiva (the cause of change ~ creation and destruction)
