Explanation of the Hindu Gods

Hindu Gods & Worship

Ancient paganism, nature, animals, and humanity are represented by various gods and goddesses. Although Hindus believe in many gods, they believe in Brahaman as one definite, impersonal, spiritual actuality over all existence. Hindus believe in regional family and individual gods as well.


Hindu worship is primarily an individual act rather than a communal one, as it involves making personal offerings to the deity. Worshippers repeat the names of their favourite gods and goddesses, and repeat mantras. Water, fruit, flowers and incense are offered to god.


Worshiped in temples, if Hindus are not near to lake or water source.
