The Encyclopedia of Eastern Philosophy and Religion explains that “the God of Christianity and of Islam, as well as all the deities of Hindu mythology, are aspects of Ishvara. Our human reason can conceive of divinity only within some form; thus, we need the concept of Ishvara.... The most widely disseminated form of Ishvara in Hindu thought is the trimurti, the Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.”[1]
