SGM Religion & Music Class

A Hindu Perspective of God

January 13, 2012

let s test our knowledge
Let’s test our knowledge
  • Who/what is our Hindu God?
  • How many God(s) do we have in Hinduism?
  • Why do we have so many murtis?
  • Do Hindus worship idols?
a pluralistic view
A Pluralistic View
  • The Hindu view of God allows one to exercise complete freedom in worship. A Hindu may worship any deity as she/he chooses based upon her/his own mental constitution.
  • We know that different modes of worship are just different roads to the same destination of union with God. We have no quarrel with other religions as we consider them as different rivers flowing to ultimately merge in the same ocean.
we worship one god
We Worship One God
  • Hindus all worship a one Supreme Being, though by different names –
    • Let’s identify the different forms of God at our Altar.
monotheistic henotheistic
Monotheistic & Henotheistic
  • Hinduism is both monotheistic and henotheistic. Hindus were never polytheistic, in the sense that there are many equal Gods. Henotheism (literally "one God") better defines the Hindu view. It means the worship of one God without denying the existence of other Gods. We Hindus believe in the one all-pervasive God who energizes the entire universe.
  • We can see Him in the life shining out of the eyes of humans and all creatures. This view of God as existing in and giving life to all things is called panentheism.
god is within us
God is Within Us
  • Knowing that God is always with us gives us hope and courage. Knowing the One Great God in this intimate and experiential way is the goal of Hindu spirituality.
  • One of the unique understandings in Hinduism is that God is not far away, living in a remote heaven, but is inside each and every soul, in the heart and consciousness, waiting to be discovered.
  • Hence, part of the mission of SGM
