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.

When we are selfish, self-centered and flare up and lose control of ourselves, we are like animals. When we reflect understanding, have control of ourselves and use our will to conquer our lower nature, we are using the Godly part of our mind.
