Hindu Gods are the gods and goddesses in Hinduism and/or Hindu mythology. The terms and epithets for deity within the diverse traditions of Hinduism vary, and include Deva, Devi, Ishvara, Bhagavan and Bhagavathi. They are the main gods of the Pandava Quartet, a series written by Roshani Chokshi published by Rick Riordan Presents. Chokshi focuses on the Vedic gods from Rig Veda in the series.[1]

Even though there are millions of deities worshiped in Hinduism (or Sanatana Dharma), they are all considered to be different forms of one Supreme Being. In this sense, Hinduism is more monotheistic than polytheistic. According to K. P. Shah, the gods were numerous, but they didn’t stay as one person all the time, sometimes they were reincarnated.[2]
