The confusion between single and multiple Hindu deities is resolved here by considering the Hindu Mahadevi to be the supreme female deity who is also the unity and source of all individual goddesses. Mostly British and American scholars of religion highlight the diversity of her identities to her worshipers, the various ways her diverse traits are interpreted and enlivened, and topics for further research along the same lines.
