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.

The stone or metal Deity images are not mere symbols of the Gods; they are the form through which their love, power and blessings flood forth into this world.
