And what does it mean?
Eskimos have forty-eight different names for snow
in their language because they know snow intimately
in its different variations, not because they are ignorant
of the fact that all snow is only one.
The Hindus have 3 main gods, and many different deities.
The Hindu trinity is of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
They are respectively the creator, preserver and destroyer.
The different gods (and goddesses) of Hinduism represent
various functions of the 'divinity', and are not separate gods.
