This is so cool. A good message for polytheists. 🙂

This is pretty much how I feel about our entire culture.
ah, i fixed the link. i didn’t realize it cut out half way through the movie. Go watch the whole thing now. 🙂
Very nice! Good to see Durga, Hanuman, and Vishnu (though that’s a somewhat odd grouping…!?!) getting some attention outside of strictly Hindu settings.

I can’t prove it, but I believe that the Durga-like Goddess in the video is intended to be Lakshmi, so we have a more conventional Vaisnava trinity. One doesn’t see Her often depicted in this fashion, but Lakshmi does have a tantric form.
Interesting…I mainly concluded Durga because of the lion that she seemed to send against the asura-like being, and I know Durga is especially connected to lions…but then again, other Hindu Goddesses could be, too. 😉
The lion is certainly identified with Durga, but Mahalakshmi features in the Devi Mahatmya, which means that in principle Lakshmi could adopt any attribute of Durga, much the same way that any Egyptian Goddess operating as “Eye of Re” can appear as lioness-headed.
Fair enough! Interesting, too…I’ve chanted the Mahalakshmi Sankirtan for a number of years now, but didn’t know that about Her! 😉
That’s kinda how I saw the Greek Gods when I was in 2nd grade.
