Writing this down to remember it ... this time.

spelling may be wrong. please correct me if you wish.

The main Hindu god has three manifestations:

1) Brama, the creator;
2) Vishnu, the preserver; and
3) Shiva, the destroyer.

According to Hindu philosophy, we each carry all three manifestations within ourselves.

Each of us may feel one manifestation more deeply than the others --- over a lifetime or at certain periods of time.

I once read a book by Sallie McFaghue about dividing gods into three parts. She's a pretty left leading Christian. She mentioned many religions and then suggested we could divide the Christian god into other than Father, Son, Holy Spirit. For instance; Mother, sister, friend etc.

Reading your post I thought of her. Also---the Buddha division has a "destroyer". Of course traditional Christianity haas the three and then adds on Satan as a destroyer. I wonder how various religions handle that. Maybe I'll need to do some checking it out on Google.

A great book on most of the religions we know is, "The World's Religions," by Huston Smith.

It's been quite awhile since I read it, and remember very little. Sad, but true.

I bet you'd find the answers to your questions in this book.
