"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity.

This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
