Number of deities in Hinduism

How many deities are there in Hinduism?

330 million

These days, there is a general perception among other religions that Hindus believe in 330 million Devas and Devis.  In fact, Hinduism is a pluralistic religion based on Dharma.  Many people make confusion.  The main idea is that the 330 million figure refers to “Deities”, which are the manifestations of One Supreme Being-Ishwar of Parambrahamn.  Moreover, many specialists consider that 330 million is a figure symbolizing infinity, indicating infinite forms of God.  Needless to say, there are some Hindus who consider the various deities not as forms of the one Brahman, but as independently existing entities.
