Creation for the Hindu people is same as the Indian creation. Indian belief of creation was when Varuna seems to be the one with the maya and so he created earth, the heavens and the space between them. But for the Hindu people, there are three main gods or a triad. Sort of like the father, the son and the holy spirit. Though the Hindu people had solar cults which they believed or believe that a three bodied sun created everything with his fertilizing warmth, and was preserved with his light, and destroyed with his burning rays. This was a triad of fire which the Indian people believe in as well. Though the triad remain, the gods composed of it changed through time. Indian culture is in fact one of the worlds oldest cultures after China, and so they have so many myths and beliefs that they in turn tie up to what they believe to this day. Hindu like Indian culture in turn have strong or cemented traditions that they stand firm in. Though funny thing is, that their foundations have constantly been changed. Why do their gods change if they believe them to be the true creators of everything? Well like I have heard; people donít change, times change. For the reason that the Indian culture has such an ancient culture, and have so many different beliefs that they compare and unite other gods from their ancient beliefs. First Varuna stood alone, then he was joined up with Mitra and Aryaman. This in turn lessened Varuna's power and was brought down from his once all- powerful state. Later this whole triad was changed to Agni, Vayu and Surya, and then Indra entered the picture with the help of Vayu. In other beliefs Indra is closely united with Agni and also with Vishnu. The Hindu people in turn believe in Vishnu the preserver, and Shiva the destroyer. Since this two gods needed one more to complete the triad, they added Brahma. Though many followers believe that Vishnu or Shiva holds the triad within or in other words that they are the most powerful. But as the story goes, Vishnu and Brahma were trying to find out who was most venerable. Suddenly a fiery pillar appeared, which seem to have no end either at the bottom are the top. For a thousand years they traveled to find the base and the top. After the thousand years they return to the same spot and found out that Shiva had turn himself into that endless pillar and so they acknowledge Shiva as the greatest and most venerable of the gods. From looking at their beliefs, I can say that they are people that had studied the bible, but instead of taking that message and using it, they have created their own gods and so have blinded themselves and their children's children. I consider the Indian people as very intellectual people but they have converted their intelligence with creating gods and have blocked themselves from advancing because of religious beliefs. Religion is very important to many people but everything in extremes is bad. Their belief that the cow is so sacred, goes to far in which they drink the liquid that comes out of a dead decaying cow. This is utterly discussing but they believe this and so they practice it. They go to far with their myths and beliefs, even rats are sacred to them. They are a perfect example of religion blocking their minds, not because religion or traditions are bad but for the fact that they have blinded themselves with all of this myths or lies.
