Why does Hindu mythology have many gods
The way back to mindfulness
In times long past, people lived in harmony with nature. They considered everything to be divine. When man's consciousness later lost its delicacy, the so-called gurus began to impart spiritual teachings instead.
Over time, the sacred fire ceremonies were introduced, through which the gods were worshiped for the welfare of the world. Thereafter, the wise consciously created a new generation of deities to suit the various temperaments of the masses.
Origin of philosophical writings
Eventually philosophical writings such as the Vedas and Upanishads were written. These should direct people's consciousness to the highest truth. However, it was very clear to the authors that the bulk of humanity would never understand the thoughts contained therein. Therefore, they promoted a path of spiritual teaching that is easily accessible to all types of consciousness.
Consciousness tends to love the beautiful, admire the great, and imitate the heroic. Man needs a friend, philosopher and guide in his daily life. The scriptures about the gods written by seers and saints meet this need.
Legends of the gods as inspiration for spiritual practice
Long passages of the legends of the gods (Puranas) describe their great deeds and glorify Vishnu, Shiva, Devi, Ganesha and Skanda. Other deities such as Brahma, Surya and Varya are also given special attention in the Puranas.
The stories of the gods, sages, kings, saints and moral heroes in the Puranas instruct in spiritual and moral values, inspire faith and love for God and impart sublime knowledge of the highest reality.
