The gods in Hinduism represent different aspects in the Hindu religion. The gods in Hinduism represent different aspects of Hinduism. There are many gods and goddesses. For example the 3 major gods are Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu. Brahma creates the world, Shiva destroys the world so Brahma can re-create it again and Vishnu is the god of protection and who looks after the world. They all form into one god who is the Brahman who is the ultimate reality. They are other gods and goddesses as well. Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and is the wife of Vishnu. Sarasvati is the goddess of knowledge and the daughter of Brahma. I found it interesting because it is something l had not experienced or even watched. Hinduism is rich in symbolism. Many acts of worship, such as puja, are symbolic, a form of visualization in which worshippers simulate activities normally performed on higher planes of existence. Om (Aum) is the most important Hindu symbol, often used as the emblem of Hinduism. The eternal, mystical syllable; the syllable that stands for whole universe. This sacred word encompasses in itself the whole universe, the past, the present and the future and goes beyond the periphery of Time itself. Beyond the symbol of the Brahman or the Universal Soul, it is the very essence of all that is sacred in Hindu thought.
