In India the predominant religion is Hinduism. Many believe that Hinduism
has many gods. The truth is the scriptures speak of only one true God.
The different deities are just personifications of the different forces,
elements and moods. It makes it easier for the people to place faith and believe.
Every home will have a 'Puja' (prayer) room. These prayer rooms will contain
many pictures and statues of the different deities. During different times of the year,
prayers are offered to the different deities. Here in this photo is Hanuman,
the god of strength during hardship. During times of difficulty Hindus pray to
Hanuman to help them just as he helped Rama in the great mythology 'Ramayana'.
Hanuman is also a very wise god, and this photo portrays that.
