Explain the Hindu concept of God.

10 comments:

  1. In general Hinduism considers God not just as the Supreme All-powerful Gigantic One, Who commands the humanity to tread the way He/She/It says, but also a personal God Whom the individual can worship out of love and not necessarily out of fear ! The fear brings one only upto certain point and beyond that it repels, but love takes through to the point. Devotion or bhakti as often referred to is a very key concept in Hinduism, even for the philosophically inclined ones. While the shashtras - be it vedas, Agamas, purANas - describe the Glory of God, one finds abundance of stotras that praise the God in love.

    The Hindu concept of God goes beyond considering Him as the supreme, all mighty and omniscient figure. According to Hindu teachings, though God governs the whole universe, every human being can develop a personal relation with Him. One can worship God out of love and not only out of fear. Devotion or bhakti is a form of love that the followers of Hinduism have for God. It is often referred to as a key principle of Hinduism, even by the philosophically inclined people.

    The Hindu concept of God is consider polytheistic religion, that is by professing belief in many gods. Hindu belief that everything living and non-living to be divine and sacred, and everthing is god.

  7. The Hindu concept of God is that Brahman is of the nature of truth , knowledge and infinity. This means it transcends all observation and limitations and dualities.The Hindus believe in one main God (that makes it monotheistic)but that one main God as other characteristics that how the other gods comes in.

  8. The hindus believe that there is only one god which they call the supreme being. this supreme being has three manifestations, brahmu- the creator, vishnu- the preserver and shiva- the destroyer.

  9. Hinduism is considered to be a monotheistic religion, in that, Hindus believe there is only one ultimate reality which is known as Brahman and they also believe in the philosophy of pantheism which is, God exist in everything. Though Brahman is their true God, It is represented in multiple forms known as the Triad of gods. These three gods include Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva and they all capture significant meaning for Hindus. Brahma is said to be the creator of the universe, Vishnu is preserver of the universe and Shiva is the destroyer god. These three gods represent the fundamental of Hinduism pertaining to the cycle of the universe.

  10. Hindus consider God not just as the Supreme All- powerful Gigantic one who commands humanity to thread the way but also as an impersonal God whom the individual can worship out of love and not necessarily fear. This simply means that the Hindus see their God as someone they can relate to as a friend or as an individual and worship the God out of love because that love
    brings them to a point while fear brings one only up to a certain point. They believe that the God is always there (omnipresent) so it can be worshiped at any time. They also believe in monotheism. Their God Brahman is classified as the impersonal/ ultimate
    reality.
