Question: Are the gods that appear in all the different world religions all the same, like Quan Yin in China and the ancient Greek gods and the cosmic gods and goddesses of India?Sri Chinmoy: No, no, no. They have their own roles. They have their own separate existence. Indian cosmic gods will not work in and through other gods and goddesses that we hear about. They have their own respective roles. Each one has its own form and its own duty.
