  1. Explain in brief the concept of polytheism, henotheism, pantheism and monotheism.

Mero understanding ko…if exam ma aako vae maile kasari lekhthye

Polytheism: Poly means many and Theos means god

So polytheism means worshipping of multiple gods and goddesses

Heno means One and Theos means God

Henotheism means having belief in only one god while accepting the existence of other deities

Hindiusim is a henotheism in practice

Pantheism: Pan means All and Theos means God

So pantheism means ‘All is God’

It is quite similar to Polytheism  cuz poly le chai many god ko worship garne vanxa ani Pan le chai  yo earth ra earth bahira vako sabai bhagwan ho vanxa
for eg; Pan says a tree is a god, a book is a god, the sun is god and etc

Mono means one
theos means god

So monotheism means having belief in a singular god only.

Jastai ki muslim haru

Tni haruko lagi Allah nai main god ho, main creator , supreme person ani the lord of he world
