Why 330 Million Gods in Hinduism?

Posted By on September 17, 2019


Hey seekers, welcome to our YouTube channel. For Christians Jesus is God For Muslims Allah is God Which we call monotheism Which means worshiping only one God But when it comes to Hinduism there are millions of God’s which we call Polythesim which means worshiping more than one God It is said that there are 330 Million Hindu Gods for various occations and various purposes For example, Lord Ganesha for removing hurdles. Goddess Laxmi for wealth Goddess Saraswathi for education And there are a Trinity of Gods or Supreme Gods Brahma, the Creator Vishnu, the Preserver Shiva, the Destroyer 330 million Hindu gods may sound ridiculous but there is a concept behind this. Vivekananda once said no two individuals are exactly same. That’s why, Indians have the liberty to choose their own deity called Ishta Devatha There are three popular sayings in hinduism Aham Brahmasmi, I am God Ayam Atma Brahma, This soul is God. Tat Tvam Asi, Thou Art that All these three things say one common thing God is everything, and is in everyone of us and is everywhere in the universe. The actual concept of 330 million Hindu gods was inherited from ancient Vedas or Upanishads where it was mentioned like “Trayatrimsa Koti Deva” which means that 33 Crore Gods It was presumed that, by the time they coated this sentence the actual population of the world was 33 Crore, which means that they treated every Human as a God. Even though the exact count of Hindu Gods was unknown, people worship millions of Gods in various forms like Kula Devata, Family God. and Ista Devata, ones own favorite Deity Whatever all the religions say one common thing God is everywhere and in every one of us regardless of race, religion and location. We are all global citizens and and we are all one That’s all folks. Hope you enjoyed watching our video Like our video or subscribe to our channel for more videos on History.

  1. ’33 Crore Gods’ is a completely misinterpreted fact due to wrong translation of Vedic Sanskrit by certain foreign 'scholars'. 
    The term ‘trayastrimsati koti’ mentioned in Atharva Veda, Yajur Veda, and Satapatha-brahmana, is rightly translated as 33 Gods.
     
    The term koti in Sanskrit has two meaning, one is ‘type’ and the other is Crore. 
    So, somewhere in translation, they missed the basic fact that Sanatana Dharma/Hinduism has 33 Supreme Gods and not 33 Crore Gods.
    According to Vedas there are 33 Gods/Devas. These Gods are separated in the following pattern : 12 + 11 + 8 + 2. 
    12 is the number of Adityas, 11 are the number of Rudras, 8 is the number of Vasus, 1 is Prajapati, the Master of Gods, and 1 is the Supreme Ruler who is very powerful.

  2. It is also worthwhile to note that as humans are part of the divine, they themselves possess the soul which is, like all things, part of Brahman. When the Upanishads mentioned this number, that was (roughly) the human population of that time on Earth. Namaste, as they say- "the divine in me bows to the divine in you".
    If you'd ask me, I'd say there's as many as 7.442 billion gods alive today.

  3. All these gods have never been able to help Indians, while Arabs have one God and Westerns have no Gods and look how and look as their achievements

  4. There is 33 types of God in Hinduism not 330 million . ( created from one god )
    Actually is confution was happen due to a word which sounds Same but in different meaning in two different Indian languages one is " Sanskrit " and one is " Hindi ".
    The word is " Koti " (koti means "types" in Sanskrit language )
    And the word " Koti " ( koti means " Million " in Hindi language)

    But all the vedic books are written in sanskrit languages thats why it will be 33types of Hindu gods not 330 millions .
