Transcript of Brahman

Brahman What is Brahman? Role of Brahman in Hinduism Brahman is one of the most important aspects in Hinduism.
It is absolute, eternal, and inexpressible. It doesn't really
have a shape or form, as it is the soul of the entire universe.
The hindu gods are forces that are integrated into this
all-pervading energy that is called Brahman.

The goal of the Hindu is to free themselves from the cycle
of rebirth and unite (as a soul) with the Brahman.Hindus
believe that once they achieve Moksha, or complete understanding, their soul will be free from the cycle of reincanation, and unite with the Brahman. Many are
currently under the influence that Hindus believe in many
different gods, while actually, they worship the Brahman,
which takes its shape in several forms. These gods and
goddeses are not seperate entities, rather than different
repersentations of Brahman, or the universal soul. By visualizing the Brahman in different forms, it becomes
easier to worship god. Common Forms of Brahman in Hinduism Shiva Hindus pray to Shiva, the god of destuction,
in order to remove all evil tendencies and
false values in their lives.
Laxshmi Laxshmi is the goddess of wealth,
and Hindus pray to her to have financial
strength and solidity in their lives. When
in a tough financial situation at home, they
might pray to her for support. Hanuman Hanuman is the symbol
of strength, perserverance, loyalty, devotion, and healing. Hindus pray to Hanuman to invoke these qualities in them. Hindus will pray to Hanuman
during tough times, to look for strength. Works Cited "Brahman of the Vedas: A Unique Concept of the Absolute." About Hinduism - What
