Brahma has 4 faces, shiva has 3 eyes , vishnu has 4 arms and many deities has many various shapes. Why? were they mutating their body or they had power of soul? Does any scripture state something about such mechanisms?

  • There might be some reason behind that ,which we cant understand clearly. But i think this is the way to seperate normal human beings from gods, by giving them the features that dose not normaly appear in human form. May 25, 2016 at 18:46
  • There are many forms of Hanuman which are not famous. Panchamukhi Hanuman has five faces. See this post and Parasara samhita for more details. Feb 14, 2017 at 3:34
