its just like the Holy Trinity in Christianity many people dont understand the term "God the Son, God the Father, and God the Holy Spirit"...i guess until you learn about the religion, youll be confizzledd :P

i would assume they use 'God' for Brahman because he is the supreme being the ultimate being. i know that it may confuse Christians and Jews because I am a Christian and before i learned about Hinduism i didnt understand the 'God' thing either. so i guess everyone should take world religions just so they know.

are you Christian or Jewish??

I thank you, sir, but do you know why Hindus use the word "God" for Brahman(I assume that it is 'him')?

Yes, I told you both Courier and Margo were your people for this.
Hinduism also sees masculinity and femininity within the divine.

81.153.41.17...LOL ahahahahahah ;) i loved the Hindu unit..it was so interesting maybe because its so different from christianity. this was the first thing we even discussed is it monotheistic or polytheistic and its both. why??

it is monotheistic because like many religions they believe in one supreme being..Brahmin. the whole goal of a Hindu just like a christian (in a way) is to reunite atman (human soul) with Brahmin (supreme being)

it is also considered polytheistic because Brhamin has different reiencarnations like Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma,etc (hehehe..just named the Hindu Trinity) and people pray to them as gods. just like the simplest path to salvation (there are 4) is bkati yoga where you worship a riencarnation (god) in a concrete way

so yeah thats why it can be considered both..hope that helped :-)

Whenever a Hindu means the word "God," does he always mean Ganesh? I have read quotations of different Indians(Mohandas Gandhi, for example) with "God" in them(I did not write it with inverted commas as a result of atheism).

Yeah, at the surface level it is polytheistic, but when you go deeper it appears to be monistic theism. Anyway as Buddhism and Hinduism both say Reality can't reduced to forms,words and concepts.

She is a devout Ganesh devotee. I know about Hinduism, but Courier is certainly your person for this. Also, Margo, one of Aishwarya's fans here is a devout Christian, but she knows alot about other religions, including Hinduism. LOL she beats Hindus in religion tests on Hinduism.
LOL

I am certainly not attempting to pry into Miss Rai's personal affairs and am quite reluctant to make this inquiry, but I am curious as to her religion. She is probably a Hindu, but I do not understand the Hinduistic concept of God(I thought that it was a polytheistic religion).
