hindu beliefs

Post by theterminator » Fri May 06, 2016 10:00 am

is it true that the hindus believe in one god who can take on different forms at the same time?
so unlike christianity the one god in hinduism is not limited to one body but can take on many forms?

Something like that. If I could ever locate it, I should quote something profound penned by the late Indian Guru A C Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada. A C is quite sure that the supreme personality of the godhead is best represented by Krishna. But so is Rama, etc.

Added for clarification, since the man has been dead (excuse me, "achieved moksha") since 1977. However, I do have a couple of his books around.

Hindus believe many different things.

It is generally better to say 'many Hindus' or 'most Hindus' believe something, rather than imply that all Hindus would agree.
