|Hinduism is supposed to be 'apauruseya', i.e., of impersonal origin &
so also are the Gods of Hinduism. They are eternal & though the deities appear to be different & independent, they
are really facets of the same Brahman, the Supreme God.
As Sri Ramakrishna says, there can be as many spiritual paths as there are
spiritual aspirants & similarly there can really be as many Gods as there are devotees to suit the moods, feelings, emotions
& social background of the devotees.
The Hindu scriptures were eloquent while describing the qualities of God.
He is all-knowing & all powerful. He is the very personification of justice, love & beauty. He is ever ready to shower
His grace, mercy & blessings on His creation.
From the Rig Veda, we come to know of the vedic gods eight Vasus, eleven
Rudras, twelve Adityas, Indra & Prajapathi, being the Gods of earth, the heavens & the space.
The main Hindu Gods as we accept today can be broadly classified as Saiva
Gods (Siva, His consort, His sons, His other forms), Vaishnava Gods (Vishnu, His consort, His various avatharams)& Sakthi
or Saktha (Forms of Goddess Sakthi).

||Lakshmi - Goddess of Wealth - Consort of Lord Vishnu|
