Lesson 1

Hindu Gods and Goddesses

For Hindus, there is a single, universal god known as the Supreme Being or Brahman. Hinduism also has numerous gods and goddesses, known as deva and devi, who represent one or more of Brahman's aspects.

Foremost among the many Hindu gods and goddesses are the Holy Triad of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, the creator, sustainer, and destroyer of worlds (in that order). Sometimes, the three may appear in the form of an avatar, embodied by a Hindu god or goddess. But the most popular of these gods and goddesses are important deities in their own right. 


Use the presentation below to learn about the different gods and goddesses - you can then either print out the pairs cards and use the descriptions to accurately match up the gods and goddesses. You could then take a photograph and send it to us.

10 dojos for everyone who accurately sorts the images!


There is also a template of an information text - which you could use to produce an information leaflet about Hindu Gods and Goddesses for a year 3 child to help them prepare for year 4. REMEMBER , YOU DON'T HAVE TO USE THE TEMPLATE. You may wish to design your own.


Dojos are available so get designing!
