4. R.E - Hindu Deities

Watch this as a reminder about Brahman.


Hindus believe in the one god - Brahman. They also believe that he can change to many forms to be born on Earth and to help people when they need it. These are called different deities and there are many of them to help with different parts of our lives.


Here is a powerpoint about some of the Hindu deities - have a look but don't worry if you can't remember them all as there are a lot. You can read about some of the main ones in the pdf below


You have a choice of activities now.

  1. Design a poster with the heading Hindu Deities. Make it fun and colourful but try and make it as clear as possible to show some of the main Hindu Deities. Use the powerpoint to help you and of course any of your own research. Try and include labels to show what the deities are known for. For example if you draw Parvati, You might put the words POWER and Strength around her. If you are not keen on drawing pictures of whole people you could use symbols, For example coins and treasures to show the wealth of Lakshmi.
  2. Ganesh is an interesting deity especially for children because he is a child ( with an elephant's head!) Watch this video below about the story of Ganesh 


     Ganesh is considered to be brave and wise - Hindus believe he is there to help when you need to do something new. Design a poster showing Ganesh and filling it with little drawings of the things Ganesh could help you with. If you prefer you could just write a paragraph and decorate around it.
