Why 330 Million Gods in Hinduism?
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.
