Thanks Mr. Modi for this interesting post. Hinduism is a religious tradition and encompassed Vedic philosophies. Ishvara or the concept of God has a divine pedestal in Hindu Dharma. Indeed Ishvara in Hinduism is the Supreme Ruler and is regarded as the Transcendental Being of the Cosmos. The Bhagavad Gita testifies this lofty reality, in Krishna s Revelation- Krishna says I am the source of everything. Everything emanates from Me. The wise who know this perfectly worship Me in great delight. - This is the concept of God or Ishvara in Hinduism. where God is the sole creator , the preserver and ultimately the destroyer.

Hi Anjana.. In Hinduism, Brahman is the Cosmic spirit of Ishvara. Bhagavad Gita says that brahman is the Omnipresent, the Divine Essence, for matter, energy, time and space for everything within and beyond the Universe. Therefore, Krishna, explains that . ...Into Brahman I plant the seed giving birth to all living beings... . You know Anjana, this all-pervasive spread of Brahman is asserted by the Mundaka Upanishad- i am quoting here Brahman is in front and in back, in the north, south, east, and west, and also overhead and below. In other words, that supreme Brahman effulgence spreads throughout both the material and spiritual skies. .

i appreciate your detail analysis .. However i would like to add here that the concept of Avatar also adds to the idea of Ishvara in Hinduism. Hinduism believes that Avatar is a deity from heaven, who takes an incarnation or birth for the well being of the mankind. The reference of different avatars can be found in the Vedas also.
