I am not a religious person at all. I don't do the daily puja and stuff. I used to till a few years ago, but then I realized suddenly that all this ritual worship is just not my thing. That doesn't mean I don't believe in God though. On the contrary, I'm a very firm believer in the existence of God.
The way I look at it, all our Indian Gods simply represent different energies of the Universe. They are like symbols, that connect us with their respective energies. For example, Lord Hanuman is the symbol for protective energy and courage. Goddess Saraswati is the symbol for wisdom, knowledge and creativity. Lord Ganesha is for removing obstacles. Whichever energy we lack at any point of time, we can think about that particular God and invite that energy into our life.
So who is my favorite God then?
With no disrespect for the other Gods (and I'm sure they won't take any), my favorite God is Lord Krishna.
To me, Lord Krishna represents the beauty and depth in all the different relationships possible. As a son, as a friend, as a lover, as a healer, as a guru, even as a foe. And it's not just his relationships with humans, but also with plants and animals.
He was naughty, but he wasn't cruel. He was kind and helpful, and he kept his promises. He was a never-ending source of wisdom. A patient teacher and a considerate lover. He was a complete "all-in-one". I bet Raymond's "complete man" tagline was inspired by him!
Anyway, do you have any favorite God? If yes, then who? And why?
