gods is a much often disputed property on the Internet. Why? The most often typed
query on the Internet relating to Hindu gods is... do Hindu gods really exist?
What is the proof that Hindu gods exist? Proof of existence of Hindu God! Truthfully
speaking... Hindu gods truly do not exist. Hindu mythology is so large... it has
created a sort of doubt in the minds of most!
indulge on the topic of Hindu gods... we need to clear self about
definition of God... what we mean when we talk of God! Are we
talking of God Almighty... the one and only one as per Hindu mythology...spirituality
or the manifested man gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus
Christ or Prophet Mohammed!
For that purpose
even Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana was a man god!
Lord Krishna who existed in times of Dwaper Yuga has never been
considered a man God... he was an Avatar (god manifest in human
form)... a messiah of his era! An Avatar is entirely separate from
man gods... human gods. Why?
gods like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed were born
normal human beings but gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in their lifetime
and became man God... one who shall not manifest a body again. These liberated
man gods... the soul atman of these man gods having liberated forever enters the
kingdom of God (termed Vaikuntha in Hinduism).
the contrary Lord Krishna also was born a normal mortal yet, even as a child he
possessed supernatural powers to the extent that the humanity considered him God
embodied in the human form. In simpler terms... an Avatar is a combination of
an enlightened one coupled with the powers of a Chanakya (the most able administrator
world has ever seen).
such a one... has the power and the capability to become a messiah... an Avatar
(god manifest in human form). For such a one re-establishing Dharma (righteousness)
is the only purpose in life. As per Hinduism lies comes full circle every 3500
to 5000 years. At the end of every cycle comes a messiah... an Avatar of his era
(god manifest in human form).
present world torn apart with strife... people await coming of 10th Avatar of
Vishnu... the awaited Bhagwan Kalki... messiah of present times! An enlightened
one coupled with powers of an able administrator... Bhagwan Kalki would be a one-man
army. This gentleman would be so powerful and upright that he would develop a
following of above 2000 million people world over.
back to the subject of Hindu gods... one thing is absolutely clear... we just
cannot mingle the two! The Hindu gods as per Hindu mythology are separate than
man gods... human gods! As per Hindu mythology the foremost of Hindu gods
is Lord Brahma (the Creator)... then comes Lord Vishnu (the maintainer) and finally
Lord Shiva (the destroyer... the ultimate maintainer).
these Hindu gods ever exist! What is the myth behind Hindu gods Brahma, Vishnu
and Shiva (aka Mahesh)? All the three attributes of God Almighty Brahma, Vishnu
and Mahesh form part of Hindu Trinity. Praying to one god as per Hinduism was
considered almost impossible... the prime reason why sages and saints of yester
era created a Trinity of three gods.
the three attributes of God Almighty... namely Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva never
existed in the history of mankind. Only for the sake of worshipping God Almighty...
for the sake of saying our prayers Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva were
created. Their physical presence carry no meaning... their physical presence was
never to be... they were simply attributes of God Almighty!
any Hindu... and he would confuse! Most Hindus believe in the physical existence
of Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva! The prime reason why Hinduism is ritualistic...
a nonbeliever of facts! As per spirituality God Almighty is not the form of human
beings... it is a cluster of pure celestial energy much beyond the comprehension
of five senses and the mind.
is not possible for an ordinary mortal to conceive what God Almighty is all about.
In every religion for the sake of prayers and worshiping... different attributes
of God Almighty were created so that mankind could survive the rigors of day-to-day
life! None has seen God Almighty still, by praying to God... a deep sense of inner
satisfaction is perceived by an ordinary mortal!
per Hindu mythology there exist 330 million Hindu gods which in itself clearly
indicates that none of these gods ever existed physically. If we pray to goddess
kali... or goddess Durga does not mean these female goddesses were ever present
physically. They are mere embodiments of absolute truth and love which human beings
have for God Almighty.
is difficult for human beings to conceive a bachelor God Almighty. How it can
be that in Hinduism God Almighty does not have a consort... and different goddesses
were created in Hindu mythology. Believers of money power pray to goddess Lakshmi.
Believers of absolute truth pray to goddess kali... the all powerful one!
are presently passing through Kali Yuga (the dark age... the metal age)... the
age of kali! In the age of kali materialistic tendencies control mankind! What
was a means becomes an end. Dominated by a bloated ego, the wanton desires and
greed for materialistic riches human beings run after ephemeral riches of life...
never truly understanding what God is all about!
per our convenience one can pray to any God yet, for reaching God Almighty it
is not the path of religion but spirituality that is necessitated! It is pure
spirituality... the uncharted spiritual path traveling which Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ, prophet Mohammed, Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi
Ramana finally gained enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) in their lifetime!
moment we understand the definition of God Almighty all becomes clear by itself!
The definition of God Almighty as per spirituality is the cluster of all purified
souls atmans in the Cosmos at a given moment of time. Bhagavad Gita... the
doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna details this definition of God Almighty
in absolute clarity.
per Bhagavad Gita for reaching God... we as human beings need to eradicate the
dross impurities within our soul atman in totality. This is also the ultimate
goal of life for every soul atman. Reaching the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) and finally salvation (moksha) is the ultimate goal of every soul atman
in the Cosmos.
moment human beings reached the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) all is
over for the soul atman within. Having reached the 8.4 millionth manifestation...
the last in the cosmic life cycle... the liberated soul enters the abode of God...
the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism). The kingdom of God Vaikuntha is
a point of no return.
may pray to any Hindu God... worship any Hindu God but the essence of life remains
becoming a man God in our lifetime. Unless we reach the stage of Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ or prophet Mohammed... after the death of body our soul atman
shall continue manifesting life form again and again until it reaches the last...
the 8.4 millionth manifestation!
myriads of Hindu gods... which exist as per Hindu mythology... it is only for
the purpose of praying to God... worshipping God... these rituals were created!
But for reaching God Almighty in our lifetime... for reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa
Samadhi (when one can have a dialogue with God Almighty on one-to-one basis) taking
the spiritual route is the necessity.
spiritual path... the uncharted spiritual territory is best traveled following
the gist of Bhagavad Gita... the doctrine given to mankind by Lord Krishna in
Mahabharata! This one document suffices all requirements to reach the stage of
enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha) in ones lifetime.
The contents of sacred Bhagavad Gita are not meant for Hindus alone.
sacrosanct Bhagavad Gita has universal appeal. For following dictates of Bhagavad
Gita one need not convert to Hinduism. Every single human being living on Mother
Earth... belonging to any religion, caste or creed can ceremoniously follow the
teachings of sacred Bhagavad Gita and finally gain enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
in ones lifetime.
Almighty can never be reached via the path of religion alone. God Almighty can
never be reached via path of Jainism, Buddhism, Christianity or Islamic Dharma
alone! One needs understanding the doctrine of Bhagavad Gita... the absolute truths
of life following which one finally emancipates forever from the cycle of birth
in the physical existence of Hindu gods is following rituals... being ritualistic!
Believing in God Almighty as the only truth of life is traveling the spiritual
path. Every single human being has an element of God Almighty as our soul
atman... the spirit within! If an independent grain of sand is a single soul atman...
the whole mound God Almighty!
since every soul atman separated from its source, God Almighty... the crux of
life is regaining its original lost pure prime pristine primordial form. It is
only through the path of karma... the process of karma... Our soul atman reduces
the dross impurities within. Human being reaching the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) was envisaged by God Almighty.
soul atman being the master and controller of the body... it is imperative upon
human beings to gain enlightenment and finally salvation at the earliest... reach
the stage of a man God... a human God! The moment last trace of karma removes
from our soul atman... devoid of all dross impurities within... it finally regains
its original pure prime pristine primordial form.
