Otherworldly

Sometimes when I see the temples in India, I get the feeling of seeing something that is not of this earth. Who are these Gods and Goddesses elaborately carved on the temples? Beings who look like humans but with multiple hands and multiple heads..Is it just the sculptor’s way of depicting something that is considered omnipotent and omniscient or was there some time when such other worldly beings really came and passed on some knowledge to the mankind? It all seems quite implausible and mind boggling if you start to think about it but then again, who can claim to know all the secrets of this universe?

  1. I can understand, in India there are Gods for every occasion. These actually are impressions of artists curated long long time ago. There was a documentary on some channel, probably discovery, trying to understand the origin of God idols in India.
