Hinduism is a pantheistic religion. For those who are not familiar with the term pantheistic – it equates God with the universe. Moreover, the Hindu religion is built on a theology of polytheistic beliefs – populated with myriad gods and goddesses who personify aspects of the one true God, allowing individuals an infinite number of ways to worship based on their family traditions, community, regional practices, and other influential elements.

The gods and goddesses, often referred to as deities, are very important to everyone’s day-to-day life. Each god and/or goddess represents a different element and is resourceful in their own right. With that said, each deity possesses distinct qualities that represent a unique personality. We as individuals on earth, mirror some of these personalities. Which god or goddess do you think you resemble? Take the quiz and find out now!
