Supernatural forces, which cause the formation of galaxies, stars, living beings and all other things by certain, set principles.

All religions of the world are in the form of an epicentre of all teachings of the ancient philosophers and religious teachers. Hinduism is one of the oldest religions on the earth. The traces of which have been found in the Indus valley civilization and subsequently Aryan propagated natural forces likes Earth (Bhoomi), Sky (Gagan), air (Vayu), Fire (Agni) and water (Jal) giving rise to the concept of almighty natural force named as God or Bhagawan.

Gayatri mantra is an important hymn in the praise of these elements written in Vedas. In later Vedic period, the concept of Gods with different manifestations like Vayu Dev, Surya Dev etc came into existence. The Vedic and later Vedic literature gave rise to belief in the existence of God. The Creator, the Preserver and the Destroyer, the concept of incarnation of Gods took shape when evil spirits began to commit great crimes on earth.

Krishna as renowned for his exploits with the gopis she Shepherdesses and his consort as Radha or the head of gopis, Rukmani and Satyabha. Krishna is often blue in colour and plays a flute. Vishnu’s last incarnation was on visit nine, as he Buddha. This was probably a ploy to bring back the Buddhist splinter group back into the Hindu fold due to the complexity arose of Brahamanical rituals.

Vishnu appears one of his incarnations as he sits on a Counch, made from the coils of a serpent and his hands holds two symbols, the Counch shell and the discus. Vishnu’s vehicle is the half man half eagle known as the Grauda. Vishnu’s consort is the beautiful Laskshmi who came to sea and is the goddess of wealth and prosperity. Brahama’s consort is Saraswati, the goddess of learning she rides upon a white swan and hold the stringed musical Instrument known as Veena. Narasingha incarnation or Man Lion incarnation in animal form.
