God is one with diverse names

 
 

Rig-Veda declares, “One alone exists, sages call it by various names” (1-164-46). God is our father. God is our mother. God is our brother. God is our friend. God is knowledge. God is wealth. God is strength. That is everything. That prevails in everything. Having many attributes and many aspects God has many names. Some popular names of Supreme Being are given below-

Brahma

-

Being the Creator of the world.

Vishnu

-

Being the Sustainer of the world.

Mahesh

-

Being the Destroyer of the world.

Shankar / Shiva

-

Being the Cause of benediction and propitious results.

Saraswati

-

Being the Repository of knowledge and learning.

Laxmi

-

Being the Real Owner of all Wealth and Riches.

Parvati / Durga / Shakti

-

Representing strength, potency and energy of the world.

Kali

-

Being the Cause of death.

Ganesh

-

Representing collective wisdom.

Ram

-

Being the bestower of bliss and happiness.

Sita

-

Being the Cause of full crops and verdure.

Krishna

-

Being attractive and subjugating.

Radha

-

Giver of delight, prosperity and success.

Thus a student may seek the blessings of Saraswati; an aspirant of wealth may worship Laxmi; a person seeking physical and mental strength may adore Durga and someone craving for personal welfare may be devotee of Shiva.

The words Saraswati, Laxmi, Kali, Parvati, Shakti, Sita and Radha are used in feminine gender and represent the mother content of God. So these names are called after adding the words ‘Goddess, Mother Goddess, ‘Devi’ or ‘Mata’ in adoration. In other theistic religions, God almighty is considered as our Supreme Father but not as Supreme Mother. Thus giving attributive names to God Almighty and seeing fatherhood and motherhood both in Supreme Being are distinct features of Hinduism.
