Hinduism :Supreme Being or Supreme God

January 29, 2017
Supreme Being or Supreme God is a term for God in Hinduism
Ishvara means God, Supreme Being, personal god, or special Self.[2][3][4]
In Hinduism, the term is used by several traditions. It is used by the Vaishnavite traditions in reference to Vishnu/Krishna,[7][8] and by the Shaiva tradition in reference to Shiva.[9]
In ShaivismIshvara is synonymous with “Shiva“, sometimes as Maheshvara or Parameshvara meaning the “Supreme lord”, or as an Ishta-deva (personal god).[5] In Vaishnavism, it is synonymous with Vishnu.[6]
Svayam Bhagavān (Sanskritsvayam bhagavān, lit. ” The Lord Himself “) is a Sanskrit theological term for the concept of absolute representation of God as Bhagavan. He is the one eternal Supreme Being called BrahmaVishnuShiva and Trimurti.
In HinduismBrahman (/brəhmən/; ब्रह्मन्) connotes the highest Universal Principle, the Ultimate Reality in the universe.[1][2][3] In major schools of Hindu philosophy, it is the material, efficient, formal and final cause of all that exists.[2][4][5] It is the pervasive, genderless, infinite, eternal truth and bliss which does not change, yet is the cause of all changes.[1][6][7] Brahman as a metaphysical concept is the single binding unity behind the diversity in all that exists in the universe.[1][8]
Brahman is a Vedic Sanskrit word, and it is conceptualized in Hinduism, states Paul Deussen, as the “creative principle which lies realized in the whole world”.[9] Brahman is a key concept found in the Vedas,
