What Hindu Scriptures say about the Creator

What Bhagavad Gita says about Idol Worship?

Bhagavad Gita says that the people who are much material oriented are also interested in worshiping materialistic gods i.e. demigods, and they worship in their own way. The verse of Bhagavad Gita says as follows:

“Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires surrender unto demigods and follow the particular rules and regulations of worship according to their own natures."

(Bhagavad Gita 7:20)

What Yajurveda says about Idol Worship and Oneness of God?

One of the popular Vedas, the Yajurveda, says that people who are ignorant worship worldly elements:

“They enter darkness, those who worship the natural elements (i.e. air, water, fire, soil). They sink deeper in darkness, those who worship sambhuti."

(Yajurveda 40:9)

Yajurveda also says that, there is no shape or image of God. This means what people worship made of soil and mud can not be the image of God:

“There is no image of Him."

(Yajurveda 32:3)

Yajurveda also says that, God is bodyless: 

“He is bodyless and pure."

(Yajurveda 40:8)

What Svetasvatara Upanishads says about Oneness of God?

Svetasvatara Upanishads say that, God can not be seen in open eyes. He has no form. Therefore it is clear that, man-made Idols made with soil can not be an image or symbol of God. It is written in Svetasvatara Upanishads that:

“His form is not to be seen; no one sees Him with the eye."

(Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:20)

It is also written in the same scripture that, there is no comparison to God:

“There is no likeness of Him."

(Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:19)

What Rigveda says about Idol Worship and Oneness of God?

Another great veda, the Rigveda, says about Idol Worship that, people should worship only the Divine One, the invisible, incomparable God: 

“O friends, do not worship anybody but Him, the Divine One. Praise Him alone."

(Rigveda 8:1:1)

What Upanishads says about Oneness of God?

The scriptures of Upanishads says that, God is one and unique, and HE has no father or lord above him, as it is written:

“He is One only without a second."

(Chandogya Upanishad 6:2)

“Of Him there are neither parents nor lord."

(Svetasvatara Upanishad 6:9)


Remember Some Facts

Vedas, Gita and other Scriptures of Hinduism also believes the same way QURAN teaches about the oneness of GOD. 

What people do is not the religion, because people do as per their tradition, culture and education received from their ancestors. 

If you truly want to know about the One God, then read QURAN, it will not be a loss for your life. But maybe it may change your life widely.
