      Gazillions as I understand. However, all the gods are trying to represent various aspects of the one Reality that Hindus refer to Brahmn (which is quite different from Bhrama or Bhramin). So in a way, it is like How many names does God have? Now one can make a list of names that give various attributes of God and call these names. Hindus attempt to describe the One reality which they say is beyond the ability of the human mind to grasp by the creation of a Gazillion gods. I guess it would necessarily lead to that since you are trying to describe what is by their own recogonition infinite. And then you get into common folklore which mixes with mythology and children stories and now Bollywood, and you are left with a fascinating Kichree. I am sure the Hindus on this forum will correct me.

        Basic Gods are the Trinity.
        Shiva - God Of Destruction, Brahma - GOd Of Creation, Vishnu - GOd Of Maintenance.
        Vishnu is the one who takes incarnations to maintain Dharma(RIghteousness) on Earth.
        Both Rama and Krishna are regarded as incarnations of VIshnu.

        As for 'Vinayaka' the Elephant GOd, he is a son of Shiva.

        Apart from that, you are pretty much free to invent your own GOds!!

                And you worship someone, who for all we know may be the lead protagonist in a nice novel by muhammad. Why not worship Sherlock Holmes if cannon doyle claimed he had divine powers and was all powerful???????

                  Andhra:
                  1.The conception of god in Hinduism is somewhat very confused between animals and superpower attributes, for example:
                  Monkey god(Hinuman): It is impossible that god can have so big tail to destroy Lanka. How
                  Elephant: the god eats grass and fodder and works for human benefits.
                  How?
                  2.Cow: this god even doesn’t wear cloths and have no differentiation of its own offspring to have sex with.
                  Why?
                  3.God with tons of limbs but still forced to retain human shape.
                  Why?
                  4.These are name of few, other all creature form snake to rat.
                  5.Whey Hinduism is so depressed by animal kingdom, which was created for humans to use as a benefit but not as master.

                  Could you please provide references for Geeta.

                    Badna-e-nake,
                    Refernce to the gita:www.bhagvad-gita.org

                    How is it possible that an Illiterate and self-confessed child molestor comes out with what can neutrally be called a novel and its lead protagonist accepted as a god by the masses. If Palyboy's lead protagonist for this month Heather Cozer(cool nude pics), is claimed to be god by its founder Huff Heffner,how is it different from what Mohammad said. Huff Huffner is infact a man of nobler character 'cos as a matter of policy he screws only females over 18 and is also literate. If 14 centuries hence Heather Cozer has 100 million followers is she god. We look at character even while recruiting an office assitant.Would you recruit an office assistant convicted of child rape(Law defines sex with 9-year olds a child rape) or having 9 wives.

                    Please do clarify.

                        Accepting I do "invent" gods,I am a Ph.D. canditate,wouldn't dream of molesting a kid and would remain ever faithful to my sweetheart I would marry in 6 months. I would rather back the entity I invent as god,rather than the worship protagonist in a novel recited by a pedophile, illiterate and sex maniac(at 9 wives that's a classic understatement)!!!
