Exploring the Significance of Hindu Deities and A Virtual Tour of Singapore Temples
Contrary to prevailing misconceptions that Hinduism has many Gods, Hindus believe that there is an ultimate Higher Being with many forms and names. Given that the Hindu diaspora community speak different languages and cultures, they have understood the ultimate Higher Being in their own distinct way. In this program, we look forward to sharing with you the concept of God, the significance of deities, and their iconographies. We will also take you on a short virtual tour around temples and deities that are commonly revered in Singapore.
