Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India - Crystalinks

Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India

Within Hinduism a large number of personal gods are worshipped as murtis. These beings are either aspects of the
supreme Brahman, avatars of the supreme being, or significantly powerful entities known as devas. The exact nature of
belief in regards to each deity varies between differing Hindu denominations and philosophies. Often these beings are
depicted in humanoid, or partially humanoid forms, complete with a set of unique and complex iconography in each
case. In total, there are 330 thousand of these supernatural beings in various Hindu traditions.
Similarities between Kama and Cupid, Vishwakarma and Vulcan and Indra and Zeus do lead many to hastily conclude
that Hindu mythology is similar to Greek mythology. But Greek mythology is quite different from Hindu mythology; it
reflects the subjective truth of the Greeks, which was radically different from the subjective truths of the Hindus. The
Greeks believed in polytheism - more than one god.
The gods of Greek mythology became masters of the universe by allegedly overthrowing the Titans, an earlier race of
powerful beings, who in turn had become powerful by overcoming Giants. Such a theme of repeat succession is
missing in Vedic literature. Unlike Greek gods, the Devas (Hindu gods) never feared the Manavas (humans) would
overthrow them.
Gods who came in chariots from the sky take us to Ancient Alien Theory. All of these gods were aliens who created
realities in which they came to Earth to experience and learn.

Kali

http://www.crystalinks.com/indiadieties.html[5/12/2016 3:16:09 PM]

Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India - Crystalinks

Kali is considered the goddess of time and change.


Kali is the Hindu goddess associated with eternal energy. The name Kali comes from kale, which means black, time,
death, lord of death, Shiva. Kali means "the black one". Since Shiva is called Kala - the eternal time, Kali, his consort,
also means "the Time" or "Death" (as in time has come).
Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilation still has some
influence. Various Shakta Hindu cosmologies, as well as Shakta Tantric beliefs, worship her as the ultimate reality or
Brahman. She is also revered as Bhavatarini (literally "redeemer of the universe"). Comparatively recent devotional
movements largely conceive Kali as a benevolent mother goddess.
Kali is represented as the consort of Lord Shiva, on whose body she is often seen standing. She is associated with
many other Hindu goddesses like Durga, Bhadrakali, Sati, Rudrani, Parvati and Chamunda. She is the foremost among
the Dasa Mahavidyas, ten fierce Tantric goddesses.

Mayan Calendar Corroborates Hindu Prophecy About.com


In the "Brahma-Vaivarta Purana", Lord Krishna tells Ganga Devi that a Golden Age will come in the Kali Yuga - one
of the four stages of development that the world goes through as part of the cycle of eras, as described in Hindu
scriptures. Lord Krishna predicted that this Golden Age will start 5,000 years after the beginning of the Kali Yuga, and
will last for 10,000 years.
Yuga in Hindu philosophy is the name of an 'epoch' or 'era' within a cycle of four ages. These are the Satya Yuga (or
Krita Yuga), the Treta Yuga, the Dvapara Yuga and finally the Kali Yuga. According to Hindu cosmology, life in the
universe is created, destroyed once every 4.1 to 8.2 billion years, which is one full day (day and night) for Brahma.
The lifetime of a Brahma himself may be 311 trillion and 40 Billion years. The cycles are said to repeat like the
seasons, waxing and waning within a greater time-cycle of the creation and destruction of the universe. Like Summer,
Spring, Winter and Autumn, each yuga involves stages or gradual changes which the earth and the consciousness of
mankind goes through as a whole. A complete yuga cycle from a high Golden Age of enlightenment to a Dark Age
and back again is said to be caused by the solar system's motion around a central sun.

Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India - Crystalinks

It is interesting that this prediction of the emergence of a new world is prophesied to appear about the same time that
the Mayans predicted it to come. The Mayan calendar began with the Fifth Great Cycle in 3114 BC and will end on
December 21, 2012 AD. The Hindu Kali Yuga calendar began on 18 February 3102 B.C. There is only a difference of
12 years between the Hindu's beginning of the Kali Yuga and the Mayan's beginning of the Fifth Great Cycle.
The Golden Age Could Begin in 2012
The ancient Hindus mainly used lunar calendars but also used solar calendars. If an average lunar year equals 354.36
http://www.crystalinks.com/indiadieties.html[5/12/2016 3:16:09 PM]

Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India - Crystalinks

days, then this would be about 5270 lunar years from the time when the Kali Yuga started until 21 Dec 2012. This is
the same year that the Mayans predict rebirth of our planet. It is also about 5113 solar years of 365.24 days per year,
and is day number 1,867,817 into the Kali Yuga. By either solar or lunar years, we are over 5,000 years into the Kali
Yuga and it is time for Lord Krishna's prophecy to happen according to the ancient Hindu scriptures. Lord Krishna's
Golden Age could easily begin in 2012!
Mayan Prophecy Matches Hindu Prophecy
It is amazing that both calendars began at about the same time over 5,000 years ago and both calendars predict a
totally new world and/or golden age after about 5,000 years into their calendars! We are definitely on to something
with these Mayan and Hindu 2012 predictions. Historically, this is an amazing fact since these two ancient cultures did
not have any contact.
The end of Kali Yuga occurs "When flowers will be begot within flowers, and fruits within fruits, then will the Yuga
come to an end. And the clouds will pour rain unseasonably when the end of the Yuga approaches."

Trimurti

http://www.crystalinks.com/indiadieties.html[5/12/2016 3:16:09 PM]

Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India - Crystalinks

In Hinduism, the Trimurti 'three forms' - is a concept in Hinduism "in which the cosmic functions of creation,
maintenance, and destruction are personified by the forms of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the maintainer or preserver,
and Shiva (Kali) the destroyer or transformer." These three deities have been called "the Hindu triad" or the "Great
Trinity". Of the three members of the Trimurti, the Bhagavata Purana, which espouses the Vaishnavite viewpoint,
explains that the greatest benefit can be had from Vishnu.

Brahma

http://www.crystalinks.com/indiadieties.html[5/12/2016 3:16:09 PM]

Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India - Crystalinks

Brahma is the Hindu god (deva) of creation and one of the Trimurti, the others being Vishnu and Shiva. He is not to
be confused with the Supreme Cosmic Spirit in Hindu Vedanta philosophy known as Brahman. Also, in Sanskrit
Grammer, Brahman is Nominative Singular of generic word Brahman, as Aatma is Nominative Singular for Aatman.
Brahaman and Aatman are same in Vedanta Philosphy, the Para-Aatma (Supersoul) and Jeeva Aatma (Individual Soul)
are Brahman. His consort is Saraswati, the goddess of learning. Brahma is often identified with Prajapati, a Vedic
deity.
According to the Puranas, Brahma is self-born (without mother) in the lotus flower which grew from the navel of
Vishnu at the beginning of the universe. This explains his name Nabhija (born from the navel). Another legend says
that Brahma was born in water. In this he deposited a seed that later became the golden egg. From this golden egg,
Brahma the creator was born, as Hiranyagarbha. The remaining materials of this golden egg expanded into the
Brahmanda or Universe. Being born in water, Brahma is also called Kanja (born in water). Brahma is said also to be
the son of the Supreme Being, Brahman and the female energy known as Prakrti or Maya.
At the beginning of the process of creation, Brahma created eleven Prajapatis (used in another sense), who are believed
to be the fathers of the human race. The Manusmriti enumerates them as Marichi, Atri, Angirasa, Pulastya, Pulaha,
Kratu, Vasishtha, Prachetas or Daksha, Bhrigu, and Narada. He is also said to have created the seven great sages or the
Saptarishi to help him create the universe. However since all these sons of his were born out of his mind rather than
body, they are called Manas Putras or mind-sons.
Within Vedic and Puranic scripture Brahma is described as only occasionally interfering in the affairs of the other
devas (gods), and even more rarely in mortal affairs. He did force Soma to give Tara back to her husband, Brihaspati.
He is considered the father of Dharma and Atri.

Vishnu

Vishnu - the Maintainer, Preserver is most famously identified with His avatars, or incarnations of God, most
especially Krishna and Rama. Additionally, another important name for Vishnu is Narayana.
The Vishnu Sahasranama declares Vishnu as Paramatma (supreme soul) and Parameshwara (supreme God). It
describes Vishnu as the All-Pervading essence of all beings, the master of - and beyond - the past, present and future,
the creator and destroyer of all existences, one who supports, sustains and governs the Universe and originates and
develops all elements within.

http://www.crystalinks.com/indiadieties.html[5/12/2016 3:16:09 PM]

Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India - Crystalinks

In the Puranas, Vishnu is described as having the divine color of water filled clouds, four-armed, holding a lotus,
mace, conch (shankha) and chakra (wheel). Vishnu is also described in the Bhagavad Gita as having a 'Universal
Form' (Vishvarupa) which is beyond the ordinary limits of human perception.
The Purana also describe each of the Dasavatara of Vishnu. Among these ten principal avatara described, nine have
occurred in the past and one will take place in the future, at the end of Kali Yuga. In the commentary of creator
Brahma in Vishnu Sahasranamam, he refers to Vishnu as "Sahasrakoti Yuga Dharine", which means that these
incarnations take place in all Yugas in cosmic scales. The Bhagavad Gita mentions their purpose as being to rejuvenate
Dharma and vanquish negative forces as also to display His divine pastimes in front of the conditioned/fallen souls. In
almost all Hindu denominations, Vishnu is either worshiped directly or in the form of his ten avatara, such as Rama
and Krishna.

Shiva

http://www.crystalinks.com/indiadieties.html[5/12/2016 3:16:09 PM]

Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India - Crystalinks

Shiva is considered to be the supreme deity in Shaivism, a denomination of Hinduism. Many Hindus such as those of
Smarta tradition are free to accept various manifestations of the divine as their chosen deity for worship, and those
who prefer Shiva are called Shaivas. Shaivism, along with Vaisnava traditions that focus on Vishnu, and Sakta
traditions that focus on the Goddess (Devi) are three of the most influential denominations in Hinduism.
The worship of Shiva is a pan-Hindu tradition, practiced widely across all of India. Shiva is one of the five primary
forms of the Divine in Smartism, a denomination of Hinduism that puts particular emphasis on five deities, the other
four being Vishnu, Devi, Ganesha, and Surya. Another way of thinking about the divinities in Hinduism identifies
Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva as each representing one of the three primary aspects of the Divine in Hinduism, known
collectively as the Trimurti. In the Trimurti system, Brahma is the creator, Vishnu is the maintainer or preserver, and
Shiva is the destroyer or transformer.
Attributes of Shiva
Third Eye: Shiva is often depicted with a third eye with which he burned Desire (Kama) to ashes.
Serpents: Shiva is often shown garlanded with a snake.
Crescent: Shiva bears on his head the crescent of the fifth day (panchami) moon. This is placed near the fiery
third eye and this shows the power of Soma, the sacrificial offering, which is the representative of moon. It
means that Shiva possesses the power of procreation along with the power of destruction.The moon is also a
measure of time; thus the Crescent also represents his control over time. Thus Shiva is known by the names of
Somasundara and Chandrashekara.
Sacred Ganga: Ganga, the holiest of the holy rivers, flows from the matted hair of Shiva. Shiva allowed an outlet
to the great river to traverse the earth and bring purifying water to human beings. The flowing water is one of the
five elements which compose the whole Universe and from which earth arises. Ganga also denotes fertility one
of the creative aspect of Shiva.
Drum: A small drum shaped like an hourglass is known as a "damaru". This is one of the attributes of Shiva in
his famous dancing representation known as Nataraja. A specific hand gesture (mudra) called damaru-hasta
(Sanskrit for "damaru-hand") is used to hold the drum. This drum is particularly used as an emblem by members
http://www.crystalinks.com/indiadieties.html[5/12/2016 3:16:09 PM]

Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India - Crystalinks

of the Kapalika sect.


Vibhuti: Vibhuti is three lines of ashes drawn on the forehead that represents the essence of our Being, which
remains after all the malas (impurities of ignorance, ego and action) and vasanas (likes and dislikes, attachments
to one's body, world, worldly fame, worldly enjoyments, etc.) have been burnt in the fire of knowledge. Hence
vibhuti is revered as the very form of Shiva and signifies the Immortality of the soul and manifested glory of the
Lord.
Ashes: Shiva smears his body with ashes (bhasma). Some forms of Shiva, such as Bhairava, are associated with
a very old Indian tradition of cremation-ground asceticism that was practiced by some groups who were outside
the fold of brahmanic orthodoxy. These practices associated with cremation grounds are also menteioned in the
Pali canon of Theravada Buddhism. One epithet for Shiva is "Inhabitant of the cremation ground" referring to
this connection.
Tiger skin: He is often shown seated upon a tiger skin.
Elephant and Deer Skin: Shiva also wears elephant skins. Similarly deer represent the jumping of minds
(flickering mind). Shiva wears deer skin which indicates that he has controlled the mind perfectly.
Trident: (Sanskrit: Trishula) Shiva's particular weapon is the trident.
Nandi, the Bull, is his Vahana (Sanskrit for vehicle).
Lingam:Shiva is often worshipped in the form of a lingam.These are depicted in various forms.
Mount Kailasha in the Himalayas is his traditional abode.
He is often represented as immersed in deep meditation.
He is said to eradicate Kama (sexual desire), Moha (material desire) and Maya (mundane thoughts) from his
devotees' minds.

Polytheistic Gods
Although the pantheistic system allowed only a subordinate rank to the old polytheistic gods, and the actual religious
belief of the people was probably but little affected by their existence, they continued to occupy an important place in
the affections of the poet, and were still represented as exercising considerable influence on the destinies of man. The
most prominent of them were regarded as the appointed Loka palas, or guardians of the world; and as such they were
made to preside over the four cardinal and (according to some authorities) the intermediate points of the compass.
Thus Indra, the chief of the gods, was regarded as the regent of the east; Agni, the fire, was in the same way associated
with the southeast; Yama with the south; Surya, the sun, with the southwest; Varuna, originally the representative of
the all-embracing heaven (atmosphere), now the god of the ocean, with the west; Vayu (or Pavana), the wind, with the
northwest; Kubera, the god of wealth, with the north; and Soma with the northeast. (Note: In some traditions, Eesana,
an aspect of Siva is regarded as the regent of the northeast and Nirrti the regent of the southwest.)
In the institutes of Manu the Loka palas are represented as standing in close relation to the ruling king, who is saki to
be composed of particles of these his tutelary deities. The retinue of Indra consists chiefly of the Gandharvas, a class
of genii, considered in the epics as the celestial musicians; and their wives, the Apsaras, lovely nymphs, who are
frequently employed by the gods to make the pious devotee desist from carrying his austere practices to an extent that
might render him dangerous to their power. Narada, an ancient sage (probably a personification of the cloud, the
water-giver), is considered as the messenger between the gods and men, and as having sprung from the forehead of
Brahma.
The interesting office of the god of love is held by Kamadeva, also called Ananga, the bodyless, because, as the myth
relates, having once tried by the power of his mischievous arrow to make Siva fall in love with Parvati, whilst he was
engaged in devotional practices, the urchin was reduced to ashes by a glance of the angry god. Two other mythological
figures of some importance are considered as sons of Siva and Parvati, viz. Karttikeya or Skanda, the leader of the
heavenly armies, who was supposed to have been fostered by the six Knittikas or Pleiades and Ganesha (lord of

troops).

Smartism
Smartism, a denomination of Hinduism is a monist as well as a monotheist religion that understands different deities
as representing various aspects and principles of one supreme entity, Brahman or parabrahman. After all, Swami
Vivekananda, a follower of Ramakrishna, along with many others, who brought Hindu beliefs to the West, were all
Smarta in belief. Other denominations of Hinduism do not strictly hold this belief. Only a Smartist would have no
problem worshiping Shiva or Vishnu together as he views the different aspects of God as leading to the same One
God. It is the Smarta view that dominates the view of Hinduism in the West. By contrast, a Vaishnavite considers
Vishnu as the one true God, worthy of worship and other forms as subordinate.
Vedic Deities - These deities represent forces of nature or devas and are not equivalent to Brahman represented as
Vishnu or Shiva. The Devas hold a similar place in relation to God as angels do in Judaeo-Christian traditions.

youth with a glowing complexion
the color of rain clouds. He plays a
flute, attracting the hearts of all. His
smile is enchanting, and He wears
a peacock feather in His curly black
hair and a flower garland around
His neck. His eternal kingdom is

that every word is a song, every
step a dance, and every moment

SHIVA: "the destroyer" (one of the


Trimurti) - Shiva comes from a
Sanskrit root meaning 'pure'. Shiva
is not a god of destruction and
death, he only destroys ignorance
and egotism. Shiva purifies, burning
up selfish desires. What remains
when these desires are burned
away? Only the pure fire of Shiva.
That is the true Self we are.

Maha Shiv Raatri is a celebration of


Lord Shiva and Devi Parvatis
wedding. Devi Parvati performed
intense tapasya for a long period of
time in order to attain Lord Shiva in
marriage. Though many attempted
to discourage her from her path of
devotion onto him, her divine Love
remained unshakable. She was
fully surrendered to him in mind,
soul, and heart; and this is what
pleased the perfect Lord Shiva.

SHIVA: "the destroyer" (one of the


Trimurti) - Shiva comes from a
Sanskrit root meaning 'pure'. Shiva
is not a god of destruction and
death, he only destroys ignorance
and egotism. Shiva purifies, burning
up selfish desires. What remains
when these desires are burned
away? Only the pure fire of Shiva.
That is the true Self we are.

Maha Shiv Raatri is a celebration of


Lord Shiva and Devi Parvatis
wedding. Devi Parvati performed
intense tapasya for a long period of
time in order to attain Lord Shiva in
marriage. Though many attempted
to discourage her from her path of
devotion onto him, her divine Love
remained unshakable. She was
fully surrendered to him in mind,
soul, and heart; and this is what
pleased the perfect Lord Shiva.
:)The spiritual path to God is not an
easy one, nor is it a fast one. We
bow to Devi Parv

Hanuman-Sita-Ram.

Annapurna is a Sanskrit name


which literally means "full of food"
(feminine form), but is normally
translated as Goddess of the
Harvests. In Hinduism, Annapurna
is "... the universal and timeless
kitchen-goddess ... the mother who
feeds. Without her there is
starvation, a universal fear: This
makes Annapurna a universal
goddess ... Her most popular shrine
is located in Kashi, on the banks of
the river Ganga."
