Hinduism and God, the Creator of the Universe

Hinduism and God, Creator of the Universe

If it wouldn’t have been for the divine soul, then the earth would have never happened. God made the universe to see the beautiful things in life, to experience the ultimate gift of God, Love, which is forever the only experience where we truly give without any expectations.

I’m a true believer in Hinduism and God, the Supreme Being, who can make or destroy, bless his devotees and also punish the wicked.

 Karma and Bhakti

Hindu is a religion that believes in the creator of the universe and there is only one God who is transcendent and immanent. Hinduism and God is all about karma and bhakti.

People want to be loved by God, and want God to bless them with health, wealth and happiness. They feel safe to believe that there is the almighty that can protect them if they are under threat of any kind. Yes, God is in everyone and in every place you see. He is the eternal being, and will be always be there forever.

The Supreme Being – Brahman

Brahman, is the Supreme Being and exists in the form of transcendent Parabrahman, or the shakti power and is the prime deity. Brahman is the original creator of the universe and has created everything on this earth like the trees, water, air, food, man, animals, insects, birds, fish and fire.

Hinduism is the only religion that worships all the forms of nature. Hindus have been worshiping trees, water, air food, fire, animals on various occasions and festivals.

The great Indian Peepal tree is worshiped on certain festivals; Tulsi is regarded as the wife of Krishna and is worshiped as well. We worship water in the form of rivers and wells.

Fire is also worshiped during many occasions. Marriages, for example need fire as a witness for the union of the husband and wife. The Cow, and snakes, etc. have been worshiped for many centuries. The Sun is worshiped as well.

So there is nothing in this universe that is not a creation of God. God blesses his devotees in each and every way, although we cannot see God in person or in his natural form, the ways in which we are benefitted is the gift of God to us.

It is said that there are three hundred and thirty three million Gods, yet Hindus believe in one God. God is someone who one can meet when one gains moksha, and one can gain moksha by doing good deeds in life and leading a truthful and honest life. Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh are the supreme divines. The other millions of Gods represent the Supreme Deity.

There are various religions of Hinduism, yet all believe in one creator, although they worship a different God. Hinduism and God blend together with other religions with a common dharma.

Moksha – Ultimate Liberation

Liberation or Moksha is the ultimate goal of human beings. Hinduism teaches one to lead a life that will lead to liberation or Moksha. It can be attained by removing negative Karma.

Karma is your action that you take in your life. These actions will determine your path to moksha. If you do good deeds in life you have a right for Moksha and if not you will pay for it. Your caste will also relate to your past life and your Karma.

If your karma in the past is good, you will be born in a good caste and will have a good life. If what you do is evil, then you will move down in the next birth.

It is through your deeds or karma that you find god. Reincarnation is one way and you will take birth many times before you are finally absorbed by the Divine soul and never return to earth.

MOKSHA: Emancipation from the ego and discovery of one’s True Nature as Atman or soul. Dharma, Artha, Kama are meant for one to discover this maturity by going through the experiences of life and seeing the limitations of pursuits of power, prestige and pleasure. When ones’s mind has been purified and unified one attains MOKSHA within oneself and in the world outside by contemplation on the Infinite.
