    Misguided judgment

    A mainstream misguided judgment is Hinduism is polytheistic - puts stock in numerous Gods.


    God is Infinite. The Infinite can be spoken to in Infinite ways and manifests in interminable ways. This, to put it plainly, is the pith of the Hindu confidence in God. That He is all over, around us and inside of us. God being unbounded, takes up numerous structures, at diverse timeframes, to help us and we love those numerous types of the SAME god, thus, god is one and only, it is his structures that are numerous, and which we revere. Infact, Hinduism steps of declaring that "we all are an a vital part of God". He is inside of every one of us.

    Toward the day's end, Hinduism is monotheistic (Believes in One God). Then again, Hinduism accepts in One God, as well as in His Infinite signs around us and inside of us interminably. Understanding that it is incomprehensible for humanity to imagine the Infinite, Hinduism presents us with His structures to offer us some assistance with visualizing him. This conviction of Hinduism is regularly mistaken for polytheism.

    To outline this point - We all watch the unending procedures of conception, presence and passing, which appear to be ceaselessly occurring around us. We always witness these procedures and are yet oblivious of them, living as we do in the solace of our deceptive lives. Hinduism gives frame and shape to these "works" of the Infinite with the Hindu Trinity - Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. "Brahma" makes, "Vishnu" supports, and "Shiva" obliterates or consumates everything in the Universe.

    That the Supreme can be venerated in any structure is an idea one of a kind to Hinduism. Such love is really a tribute to His enormity.

    Due to the infinite desires of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, there is existence in the spiritual world, and due to the infinitesimal desires of the living entity, there is existence in the material world.
    There is no need to ask, therefore, why God created the infinitesimal portions, they are simply the complementary side of the Supreme. It is doubtlessly essential for the infinite to have infinitesimal portions which are inseparable parts and parcels of the supreme soul.
