 DESCRIPTION
spacer
India is the country predominantly having the religious background and several deities have influenced the people from the time immemorial. Some of them, having the remote origin dominated the Indian religious scene for sometime, while some of them continued their influence over the contemporary society for a limited period and were rejected by the society or made them to disappear as rapidly as they had mushroomed over the Indian religious horizon. Still there were some Gods and Goddesses, who though claiming quite a remote origin, continued to dominate the Indian religious thought in one form or the other, reaching the modern times. The Vedic deities in India are considered to be the earliest in the sub-continent and scholars have tried to find out their presence in one form or the other even in the Harappan culture or even earlier to that. Indeed some of the Vedic Gods like Visnu, Prajapati (Brahma), Rudra (Siva), Ganapati, Hanuman, Garuda, Varaha and others so infuenced the society that they continued their travel casting forceful impact on the minds of the people, reaching the modern times. Some of these still enjoy a powerful place in the Indian religious literature and art. An astonishing aspect of the Vedic Gods has been the presence of the composite forms, and these composite forms did not travel beyond the Vedic times, but could be considered to be the forerunners of the later composite forms, so abundantly available in the medieval times.
