Summary

If by monotheism we mean the idea of a single transcendent God who creates the universe out of nothing, then that is not found in the history of Hinduism. But if we mean a supreme, transcendent deity who impels the universe, an ultimate source of all other gods who are her or his emanations, then this can be found in Hinduism.

Hindu Monotheism Summary

Hindu Monotheism by Gavin Dennis Flood (Yale University, Connecticut)

If by monotheism we mean the idea of a single transcendent God who creates the universe out of nothing (creatio ex nihilo), as in the Abrahamic religions, then that is not found in the history of Hinduism. But if we mean a supreme, transcendent deity who impels the universe, sustains it and ultimately destroys it before causing it to emerge once again, who is the ultimate source of all other gods who are her or his emanations, then this idea does develop within that history. It is a Hindu monotheism and its nature that is the topic of this Element.
