A Hindu deity (god or goddess) represents a particular aspect of the Supreme Being. For example,
Saraswati represents the learning and knowledge aspect of the Supreme Being. Thus, if a Hindu wants to pray for acquiring
knowledge and understanding, they prays to Saraswati.Hindu deity does not have a separate and independent existence from
the Supreme Being. Thus, Hindu worship of deities is monotheistic polytheism and not simple polytheism.
