God—- Please help me
Someone commented that we should only pray to one God, one should have faith in one religion only.
When we pray to multiple Gods (I will explain this later) this confuses the Gods also and also shows our lack of faith in one particular one. It also leads to fights between the Gods. And if we pray to different Gods at the same time, they (different Gods) also get confused as to who should take care of the one who is praying.
Am I sounding confusing? Actually I am
We all know that in Hindu mythology there are hundreds of Gods
Then we have different religions with their own Gods.
I visit church, Gurudwara, Dargah, jain temples, then different temples of different Hindu Gods like Hanuman, Shiv, Krishna, Ganpati, Sai baba etc etc.
When I am troubled I visit all the temples and pray to the idol of that particular temple to set things right for me.
Depending on the comment made above it means that by visiting and praying to all the different Gods, I am confusing all of them. Each one may be thinking that the other one will take care of me J. And each one will be passing the buck on other one.
Actually the above comment also made me thinking that why do we have so many types of God? And why do we pray to him?
When it is said God is one then why do we have so many different avtaars of God?
Of course when we say that God is omnipotent, he knows everything , everything is as per his wish then why do we ask him for things, why do we pray to him when some near and dear one is not well?
Why do we request him to set things right when things are not going as per our wish? If he is the creator of us, if everything is supervised by him, when everything is predestined then he should know what we want. Then why ask him?
And if everything is predestined then we do we worry because whatever will be will be.
And further do we commit some mistake by asking the same things, praying for the same thing by visiting different temples?
Should one stick to one particular branch of religion only or one should only have faith in one specific form of God?
Suppose if I visit one temple and pray there and ask for something and then if I visit another temple and ask the same thing there also does it mean that I don’t have faith in the idol of first temple that is why I am praying to other one ?
Oh God help me can any of the thousands of Gods and Goddesses present in this universe answer this?
