Lomus in Hindû mythology, is the first created being, formed by Brahma when he commenced to exist. He immediately concluded to devote himself only to the contemplation of divine things, and, in order to be undisturbed, buried himself in the ground. This pleased the gods so much that they loaded him with favors, increased and fixed his power and piety, and assured him a duration of life surpassing even that of Brahma (q.v.). Lomus, said to be twenty miles long, and covered with hair all over, draws out a hair after the lapse of each cycle Brahma has gone through, and dies only after the last hair is drawn.
