One may worship Shiva, Vishnu, Rama, Krishna or some other gods and goddesses or one may believe in the 'Supreme Spirit' or the 'Indestructible Soul' within each individual and still be called a good Hindu.In Hinduism the Supreme Being doesn't sit in Heaven meting out rewards and punishments, but, instead, is present in all creatures. Rather than being a pantheistic religion, Hinduism is panentheistic because god, as an ever-changing Being, is present in everything and everyone. Creation, protection and destruction, the chief functions/roles of the Supreme Being, are represented to Hindus by three gods of our Hindu Trinity Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh. Some explain these three gods as manifestations of the Supreme Being; others insist that they are independent. Each god has a particular power associated with him, which, in turn, is represented as a consort.
