Brahma Vishnu Mahesh

Brahma Vishnu mahesh

Almost 90% of the humankind believes in God and his powers. In fact we consider him as a part of our soul and have solid faith in his supremacy. We made him part of every moment of life that includes joys and sorrows of life. We speak to him, we get angry with him, we blame him sometimes and also we thank him for the success. This means that God is living a life of a human being along with us sharing all thoughts of life. This is true for every religion whether Hindu, Muslim, Sikh or Christian. Every religion has its own way of reaching the God and communicating but the ultimate goal of all is to reach him and building space in his heart.
So is the Hindu religion that believes in freedom of human kind and sharing love. If we talk about the Gods of Hindu religion, no one will be able to confirm the exact number of Gods which is countless. Hindu religion says that God is present in everything that is present within this universe. Hence it is divine which means God. According to Upanishads it is said that there are thirty three Gods which are divided as 12 adityas, 11 rudras, 8 vasus, Indra and Prajapat. This is misinterpreted as 33 million Gods by many due to the word Koti used in Upanishad which means crore as well as type. This is an endless discussion without any conclusion for the total number of Gods. Anything available to us by nature we presume it as God like rain God (Indra), Earth (Bhudevi), Air (Vayudev) and so on. This is basically to respect the natural sources available to mankind and not to waste them or disregard them. But if we go deep into the Hindu mythology it is known that there are three supreme deities of Human being which are described as Brahma (Creator), Vishnu (Preserver) and Mahadev (Distroyer). There are often referred as Trimurti. These three were also one initially and split into three to create the world and manage it. Brahma is the creator of the universe. Vishnu is the preserver or maintainer of the world and Mahesh is the destroyer. Brahma creates everything, Vishnu preserves the good things and Mahesh destroys the evil. In later stages they took birth in different names with some or the other purpose and each incarnation got renamed as another God. For example Vishnu came as lord Krishna and Lord Rama to teach the lessons of dharma to the mankind. In the same way Lord Mahesh came in the form of Hanuman to assist Lord Rama in the search of his wife Sita who was absconded by demon Ravan. There are number of stories of Gods reincarnated in different forms for various purposes. And we humans gave the name of different God to each incarnation creating a new God. Whereas in actual Hindu mythology says that Lord Krishna and lord Rama are none other than Lord Vishnu and Lord Hanuman is Shiva or Mahesh who themselves were one and got split for the creation of the universe. Different Hindu people worship different God. Like all Hindus belong to one religion, all Gods are also one and cannot be separated just because of a false belief. One person believing in Lord Krishna and other in Lord Rama but ultimately both believes in Lord Vishnu.
Almost every natural product gifted to us by god is worshiped in Hindu religion to respect the natural resources available to us. We worship plants like Tulsi and peepal, animals like cow and fish, mountains like govardhan, and Himalaya and water in rivers available to us. People who does not belong to Hindu community make fun of this that how such things can be worshiped and how will they fulfill our desires. A simple reply is that worship or puja is not done to fulfill the desires but to respect the resources available to us. We give respect to these plants, animals, water and mountain that they allowed us to live and sustain ourselves on this earth as human life is not possible without the presence of these resources. Even different gods in their different incarnations taught us to respect whatever is available to us naturally. We have been taught to respect humanity, plants and animals and also the natural resources available.
