So i am really interested reading on the topic of hinduism, i don't know why i just find it interesting. And wanted to list a few of the deities that are involved with hinduism. And i thought it would be helpful for those would like to know more on each type of deity.

Hinduism:

Hinduism is the predominant and indigenous religious tradition of the Indian subcontinent. Hinduism includes rauta, Vaishnavism and Shaivism among numerous other traditions. It also includes historical groups, for example the Kapalikas. Among other practices and philosophies, Hinduism includes a wide spectrum of laws and prescriptions of "daily morality" based on the notion of karma, dharma, and societal norms. Hinduism is a conglomeration of distinct intellectual or philosophical points of view, rather than a rigid common set of beliefs.

Hinduism is formed of diverse traditions and has no single founder.Among its direct roots is the historical Vedic religion of Iron Age India and, as such, Hinduism is often called the "oldest living religion" or the "oldest living major religion" in the world.

One orthodox classification of Hindu texts is to divide into ruti ("revealed") and Smriti ("remembered") texts. These texts discuss theology, philosophy, mythology, rituals and temple building among other topics. Major scriptures include the Vedas , Upanishads , Puras , Mahbhrata , Rmyaa , Bhagavad Gt and gamas .
