Hinduism : Part-9.

Monotheism and Polytheism Reconciled


Hence, my young friends, learn to recognise that in and through these various Divine Forms, you are really worshiping only the One Supreme God or the One Almighty Universal Soul (Param Atma).

You are not worshiping many different gods.

No matter by what names you call and address the Supreme Being, these names do not affect His eternal, non-dual nature.
Adoration offered to any of these forms of the Hindu Divinities (Devatas) is directed really towards the one eternal Reality.
Even when ignorant worshiper does not know this and thinks otherwise, nevertheless, he is worshiping the One non-dual Supreme Divine Spirit which is the same Para Brahmam of the Vedas or Parama Sivam of the Saiva Siddhanta or Bhagavan or Kadavul of the Bhaktas.

Just as when you take a sea bath at the beach, no matter whether you bathed in Tonga beach or Durban beach or the beach in East London or in Port Elizabeth, what you have done is that you have bathed in Indian Ocean.

He who does not understand this requires to be instructed and taught.

Sri Swami Chidananda
