What does Elohim Represent?
In Hinduism, Elohim represents the absolute and ultimate reality. Hindus believe that Elohim is the creator, sustainer, and destroyer of all things. Elohim is also known as Brahman, the supreme spirit. Hindus believe that Brahman is both immanent and transcendent, meaning that it is both within and beyond the universe. Brahman is the absolute truth, reality, and bliss. Hindus believe that Atman, the individual soul, is a part of Brahman. Atman is eternal, infinite, and perfect. It is only through realizing our true nature as Atman that we can attain moksha, or liberation from the cycle of birth and death. Yoga, meditation, and other spiritual practices are means of realizing our true nature and attaining moksha.
