Mysticism of Hindu Gods and Goddesses
One can be photographed in many poses – likewise, God assumes infinite forms. All appear different, yet all are the same Supreme. Spiritual aspirants on different levels of evolution, having different degrees of mental purity and devotion, cannot worship the same aspect of the Divinty. Therefore, different manifestations of God arise, each having a deep mystic symbolism designed to awaken the mystic powers of the soul. Mysticism of Hindu Gods and Goddesses provides this mystical significance along with a portrait of each deity. Also included is a lengthy section on Avataras (Divine Incarnations).
