We’re offering here a very basic primer on the structures and central deities of Hinduism.
Hinduism has no one central set of religious rules, practices, or a single faith leader — rather, it might be fair to say that there are loosely organized sects and as many accepted methods of practice as there are adherents. One commonly held organizing principle, however, is that of the Trimurti, or Hindu Trinity. It’s comprised of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva — the same three deities who serve as the touchpoints for the Trilogy. Learn more about them in the primer, below.
