Each God has a specific trait in Hinduism


Ramakrishna Parmahamsa gave the example of a man who is a judge. When he goes into the courtroom he is seen by the people present as a judge. When he comes home his wife sees a husband. His children sees him as a father.

It is all the same person, the different perceptions are in the eye of the beholder. God is one. "Ekarh jyotir bahudha bibhati - The one Light appears in diverse forms" (Atharva Veda).
