Hinduism : Part-4.

Monotheism and Polytheism Reconciled :


Here, our young readers may ask, "Who are these different deities that our elders have worshipped?

For example Vinayaka, Muruga, Hanuman, Mariyamma, Kali, Vishnu, Siva, Parvati, Sarasvati, Lakshmi, Ayyappa, Dattatreya, Rama, Krishna etc.

Also, why are you having so many different temples having these different deities in them?

We are puzzled as to what connection there is between these deities.

We are not able to understand who they are and why so many when Swamiji writes there is only One God."

These questions are quite proper and young people being puzzled on this point is also understandable.

Now, I shall explain to you what this situation means and also why such a situation has come about and why it has been allowed to remain in our society as part of our Hindu belief and worship.

Now it is your turn as readers to carefully mark my words and to read with careful attention the matter I am explaining and try and understand it properly in an intelligent way.

Sri Swami Chidananda
