Who Invented the Gods?

Gurudeva responds today to a question about the abundance of Hindu Gods. "Why were they invented?" a devotee asks. Gurudeva explains briefly the nature of these many Gods and the Hindu's connection with them, and Gurudeva stresses that these Gods are real living beings, not fabrications of imagination or mere symbols.

To the Saivite Hindu, all of life is sacred. All of life is religion. Thus, Saivite art is sacred art, Saivite music is devotional music, and the Saivite's business is not only his livelihood, it is his service to man and God.
