In Hinduism, the term "other gods" or "gods" can be understood as a kind of "organs", "moods", or "dispositions" of One God, and these "organs" or "moods" have their names. The same parallel can also be found in roles attributed to us - ask yourself how many of us are fathers, but also sons and professionals? We, too, have multiple roles like gods. As long as you have children and your parents still live, you are simultaneously the son (of your parents) and the father (of your children).
Exodus 3:2, There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire from the middle of a bush. Moses stared in amazement. Though the bush was engulfed in flames, it didn’t burn up.
Agni is the god of fire and a member of the so-called "Dikpalas" - a class of deities that govern specific directions (this teaching is also in the Kalachakra tantra).
It seems that in this picture Agni has a female touch.
There are four such Guardians of Directions
called Lokapalas (Guardians of the World). These are:
Agni is the god of southeast direction.
There are many gods in Sanatana Dharma and most of them, except for Ganesha, Skanda, Shiva, Durga, Surya, Vishnu (because these are considered supreme), are analogical to the Judeo-Christian concept of "angels" (Devas, but not so powerful as Maha Devas). Indra - god of weather and war, for example, is the ruler of these Devas (angels).
Miscellaneous gods were considered supreme at different times and today they are known by a completely different name. Some of the earliest Vedic gods are: Dyaush-pita - the sky father, Vayu - the wind god, Parjanya - the rain / thunder god, Surya - the sun god, Varuna - the god of the oceans, Agni - the fire god, Indra - the war or the thunder god, Soma - the god of speech, Yama - the god of death, Adityas - a group of solar deities, the Rig Veda recognizes six of them, the Brahmanas recognizes eight such deities, the Satapatha Brahmana recognizes twelve of them. The Vedic gods are listed at the bottom.
An ancient deity worshipped in the Indus Valley Civilization. Its image - elongated anthropomorphic figure with three protuberances in the head - will tell you more. This deity is associated with the Tamil god Murugan.
Ayyappa is a Hindu deity revered in South India. Lord Ayyappa is worshipped in a number of shrines across India. The Sabarimala Ayyappa Temple (a pilgrim centre in Kerala) is unique in all India. Devotees of this god show no caste discrimination if anybody wants to enter the Ayyappa temple. Faith in this god, although with little support in the Puranic literature, is based on legends, which differ depending on a region they come from - their basis is that Ayyappa is the son of Lord Shiva, who got attracted to Lord Vishnu. Vishnu took a female form known as Mohini. In Srimad Bhagavatam (Bhagavata Purana) it is written (8.9.9): "The Supreme Personality of Godhead, in the form of Mohini, told the demons..." Legends bring different stories, but they have one thing in common - Lord Ayyappa is the god for all; he is Unity and Harmony. He is also known as Bhuthanatha Dharmasastha, Hariharan, Ayyanar and Manikanta.
Chandramouleshwar is the ancient form of Lord Shiva with emphasis on the Moon (Chandra).
Dattatreya is the Hindu God who appeared as the incarnation of the Divine Trinity - Brahma, Vishnu and Siva. "Datta" means "Given" and the word is derived from belief that Divine Trimurti "gave" Themselves to a sage couple (Atri and Anasuya). Dattatreya was a real person, but little is known about him as a historical figure. He was the son of Atri, hence the name "Atreya."
Madurai Veeran (Warrior of Madurai) is a Tamil folk
deity popular in southern Tamil Nadu in India. His name was derived

in the French overseas territories (in the Caribbean sea). He is known
as the son of "Amman" amongst the South African Tamils.
