Philosophically Hindus worship only one God.Vedas say ‘ekam sath(truth is One)’. ‘But the wise call It by many names’
The Tamil hymn:”oru namam ore uruvam illarkku pala namam solli thellenum kottomo?”
“Shall we not sing the praise of our lord beating our drum, with many names to whom there is no name nor form?”

Mythological heroes and chieftain of the villagers and other nobles who did remarkable deeds are worshipped by Hindus and through those images also the Almighty God who does not have form is perceived.

The ‘bhava(attitude)’ concept is in ‘bhakthi yoga(devotional path)’ You can choose one bhava and imagine your mental picture of God for easy remembering and recall. The bhava depends upon your natural endowments. The same Krishna can be conceived as a baby, mischievous playful boy, a cowherd, a flutist, a giant who can lift a mountain, a lover who plays with many girls, a king, an ambassador, a charioteer, a teacher, a friend, a brother, son, a guru, and an avatar of God—the description is endless.
So with other deities. So the number of deities are infinite.

God is infinite. Is it not? So why confine Him only to one name? Let their be as many names as possible to the same God –the one God,.
THE SANATANA DHARMA often referred as HINDUISM is to be understood properly. Otherwise there is a scope for confusion and misunderstanding the Dharma.(THE WAY OF LIVING and THE WAY OF UNDERSTANDING THINGS AROUND US)

The life on Earth , say for Humans is dependent on so many factors,
We do not recognise or we do not see the value and take it for granted so many things that are ESSENCIAL FOR OUR LIVING AND ARE FREELY AND ABUNDANTLY AVAILABLE IN NATURE.

The AIR we breathe, the water we drink, the fruits and greens we eat (In the By gone days they were never sold ,and wee freely available to all)…..we do not ponder over these.

The HINDUS (The Rishis) saw them in the real Perspective and realised the Importance of those things which are innumerable.
They felt that the Creator who made all those things freely available shall be NOBLEST OF THE NOBLE.

They felt they should express GRATITUDE to these essential things that were so magnanimously provided in abundance.

The Rani…it is important to our living more .Water is needed for our daily consumption and we can not live without water.water is needed for agriculture.Water is needed for our cleanliness and so many other things.So the Rishis gave Godhood and called the Rain as Rain God Varuna Deva.
Similarly the Fire that is so important to keep us alive, is called Agni Deva or Jaata Veda.
The Air we breath is VAAYU DEVA.

The Erath we stand on from birth to death, is called BHOO DEVI.

The Space or akaash(Sky) is called Aakash Deva.

All the plants in the nature are vanaspatis , the Medicinal plants and are adorned as Vriksha Devataas and Vanaspatis.

Even the Sleep we so unknowingly slip every day night, we do not know its value unless we suffer a disease when you can not sleep in spite of best comforts. It is called NIDRAA DEVATA.

The Money is called AIswarya DEVATA.
The Poverty is called Daridra Devata (Jyesta)

Similarly if I give list it is almost an endless one. All that exists in Universe is NOTHING BUT THE PART AND PARCEL OF THE COSMIC FORCE OR THE GOD OR THE BRAHMAN.

So, the thought, the mind, the thinking, the dream, the dreamer, the
Miserliness, The Bravery, the Timidness, the Knowledge, the Education, The ignorance, The arrogance, The innocence, The Sickness, The Health, The body, The house we live in, The garden (Vana Devata), The satisfaction, The dissatisfaction, The happiness, The unhappiness,……..etc so many things , all things in the life are vitally important and seen as gods. This is nothing but the expression that every thing in the universe is God, All animate & Inanimate Things or beings are god. there is nothing that is not God .

Sahasra means infinite So all the heads & eyes and bodies are — He only —
To understand this a basic understanding of Sanatna Dharam is required
So you will yourself say that there are three crores of God — ie not only three crores but entire population on Earth are Gods —– ie billions of gods — How many we really do not know
Please try to grasp & understand the meaning behind this — it is the Sanatna dharama alone that can explain this fact fully — & explain the God

There is only one BRAHMAN, (THE GOD).

Hinduism accepted each God as a reincarnation of the Supreme ie One God
If you observe an Ocean, you will see so many small, medium and big waves?
Where have they come from ?
Until they appear as waves we call them a wave, then it merges again into the Ocean, All the waves are similar. How many waves are there totally in the Ocean? Can you count?

They are all————-one ocean only


“God rules this universe. He possesses perfect knowledge to control Natural phenomenon. Disasters happen when we interfere in His sphere of influence. Hinduism has been evolving God Hinduism doesn’t rest its Authority on prophets Hinduism is an Open book which has been teaching human values. Religion is System of Values & Beliefs. Religion is undoubtedly a path leading to God. All religions lead same path of achieving God. Religions, therefore, should be humanistic & tolerant to other Religions. No Religion has monopoly over the God.
Sanatan dharma of ancient India, was a natural religion with good feeling of morality for helping others & having no founder. The religion of hinduism lies in the hearts of every one. The thought that the law of Karma will punish every one & importance of forgiveness, reduces the impulsive feelings of revenge among Hindus. Violence & intolerance are obstacles in this life journey
Religions preaching violence can not help their followers getting Spiritual peace. Followers, who subdue senses for such Religions always meet tragic end. Idea of an After Life motivate Hindus to do Good in present life & get reunited with Divine Power & Achieve liberation from cycle of rebirth”~mohanalok

We always want trusting friends who are with us in sunshine & in shade But fear of rejection scares us all. If we are cruel to our fellow humans then God may ask us to abandon all religions & just surrender “LIve & allow others to live Love & be loved”. Feelings of betrayal by own people register in our minds very deep. Forgiving & Always moving on in life is only beneficial to us.  We become stronger both mentally & physically, When events go beyond our realm of control When all doors of this world close for us the supernatural force opens the  door of spirituality for us. Religion is the driving force behind this realization which has created civilized societies. Religion helped establishing a justice system in this universe. God has no beginning or end & no physical dimensions. He just exists among us & feels our pain. God has life in Himself & can be felt in the form of vibrations~mohanalok
