Who Is Father Of All Gods?

In many mythologies and religious traditions, including Hinduism, there isn't a singular "father of all gods" in the same sense as a monotheistic deity. However, in Hinduism, the concept of a supreme creator is represented by various deities and is often understood differently by different sects and philosophies within Hinduism.

Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva are considered the three principal deities in Hinduism, known as the Trimurti. Each of them plays a distinct role in the creation, preservation, and destruction of the universe:

1. Brahma: Brahma is traditionally considered the creator of the universe. He is depicted as having four heads, representing the four Vedas, and is often associated with knowledge, creation, and the cycle of life.

2. Vishnu: Vishnu is the preserver and sustainer of the universe. He is believed to incarnate on Earth in various forms (avatars) to restore cosmic order and protect dharma (righteousness). Many Hindus consider Vishnu to be the supreme deity, while others view him as one aspect of the ultimate reality.

3. Shiva: Shiva is often regarded as the destroyer or transformer in Hindu mythology. He is associated with destruction, but also with regeneration and the dissolution of the ego to attain spiritual liberation. Shiva is worshipped in various forms, including the auspicious and benevolent form of Lord Shiva and the fierce aspect of Rudra.

In some Hindu traditions, the concept of Brahman, the ultimate reality or cosmic consciousness, is considered the source and essence of all existence, including the gods themselves. Brahman is understood as transcending all forms and attributes, and as such, it cannot be limited to a specific deity or form.

Therefore, while there isn't a single "father of all gods" in Hinduism, the concepts of Brahman, Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva collectively represent the various aspects of the divine, creation, preservation, and transformation in the Hindu pantheon.
