HINDUISM

God & Goddess

"Whenever a devotee  wishes, with unwavering faith, to worship me in a particular form, I take that form".
 
-Bhagavad Gita 4.1

Stories help establish the character of Hindu deities. These stories are found in Epics such as the Ramayana and the Mahabharata and in Chronicles such as Puranas. Some retold in the Tantras and Agamas, others are found in folklore. These stories reach the common man through vernacular retellings. Each retelling has a character of its own.
