Hinduism 330 million gods; Kiera Forde-Richards

This movie though not as long as wounded knee was not as intresting to me but i guess it played its part in explaining how hindus perceive the many gods i understand that they too have one main god called the Brahma and that the many different gods are what link them to the one god. I understand that they too like the buddhist seek enlightment however not on their own but through gurus. They also clarrified a question i too  had on hinduism which was do they believe that they are actual gods within the idols they worship and it was rather queer but understandable to find out that they know that no god is inside the idol but the however use it as a template to reach the god by or to represent the god through worship.
