Hindu gods and goddesses - hindu goddesses and gods

Hindu 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!

Before we 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?

Man 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).

On 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).

Only 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).

In 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.

Coming 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).

Do 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.

All 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!

Ask 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.

It 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!

As 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.

It 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!

We 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!

As 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!

The 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.

As 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.

The 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.

We 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!

Amongst 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.

The 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.

The 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.

God 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 and death.

Believing 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!

Ever 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.

Our 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.
