Hinduism is the most prominent religion of India, also called ‘Sanatan Dharma’ due to its antiquity and vastness. Similar to religions like Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Jainism, etc. Hinduism is not a religion founded by any prophet or individual.
It is still a set of different faiths, mourning, beliefs, and beliefs that have been in existence since ancient times. Being a developing religion, new dimensions were added to it during various periods.
Hinduism is a religion with such a vast landscape that it has everything from primitive village deities, ghost-vampires, local deities, chandeliers, tantra-mantras to Tridev and other gods and formless Brahm and too esoteric philosophy – all without any There are inherent contradictions, and everyone is worshiped according to the particular place and person.
The Hindu religion shows the perfect syncretism of small and great traditions. On the one hand, it is worshiped to the Gods and Vedic and Puranic deities, on the other hand, enormously horrific ritualistic worship is also performed by Kapalik and Avadhutas.
On the one hand, there are many devotees filled with devotional juice; on the other hand, they are seen as atheistic – non-selfish and even atheistic. If caught, Hinduism is also perfect and easy co-ordination of the completely anti-principles.
This is the result and reflection of Hindu spirituality’s generosity, universal religion, syncretism and the best feeling of religious tolerance.
What is Aadi Dev?
The word Adi means, first of all, very ancient. Adi Dev Brahma, Shiva and Surya have been called. When the Supreme Father took the male avatar to create the universe, then God was called Adi Dev in the form of accomplishment. The origin of the all-universe has been told from these Adi Devs. Those who are the first of all the gods and whose origin was first called Adi Dev, other gods would not exist without them.
Who is Adi Purusha?
Adi means (first)and purush means (man), and that is how the word ‘adi purush’ is understood. We are all aware that the universe has been created by some supernatural power gained from lords, who controls and owns it.
The creation of the Brahma is done by Ishvarara,” whom we familiar people worship every day. Ishwara is the one who looks after his people and the Jagat (world).
As per Bhagavatam, Lord Brahma is the roop (face) of Lord Vishnu. Who is brought for creating the universe. Lord Vishnu is considered as the”Sarvaa shaktimaan.” (Powerful of all) and savasana meaning ( the one who has immense knowledge ). Lord Vishnu has many roops (faces) and is worshipped accordingly by people.
It is believed that Lord shiva worships lord Vishnu and lord Vishnu worships lord shiva because, as per both of them, they have arrived after each other. Once goddess Parvathi questioned lord shiva and asked him who he worshiped too, he replied, ‘ I worship lord Vishnu and as he’s the Sarva shaktimaan and superior.
The perfect example can be at Rameshwaram temple, where both the idols of Lord Vishnu and Shiva worship each other. Whereas lord shiva, Vishnu and Brahma can be considered as Adi Purusha.
