Comparative list of Hindu Gods

 

When Hindus migrated to different parts of the world, they took their religion and gods to other cultures. Those people adopted and adapted our Gods, customs and words. We find words of Sanskrit and Tamil origin around the world. Following list may contain some repetitions and contradictions. When a culture takes ours it always get mixed up and the tendency of any culture is to bring it closer to their existing beliefs. I have already shown this in my article ‘Sanskrit in Bible’. I have also shown how our Vahanas are used in Sumerian and Iraq and Mayan civilization.
