Monotheism and Polytheism Reconciled :
The sublime philosophy of the Hindus declares that God is one.
God is the ultimate divine Reality.
The ancient sages of Hinduism clearly stated, "The Reality is One, the wise ones refer to It variously (by various terms)."
We have the significant announcement, "Ekam sat, vipraha bahudha vadanti."
This truth they declared when they spiritually discovered It through their direct personal experiences granted by Divine Grace.
Therefore, a real follower of true Hinduism knows and therefore firmly believes that the Divine Reality or God is one and non-dual.
Even though Hinduism is mistakenly regarded by many as a religion having many gods namely, polytheism, yet truly speaking Hinduism is a monotheistic religion.
It is a religion that long long ago, before any other religion had appeared in this world, had discovered that there is only ONE GOD.
