Q.

Hinduism has many deities. This is much like ancient Greek and Roman religions. The god Brahma is the creator of the world. The god Vishnu who preserves the world through his many incarnations. The god Shiva will destroy the world which will be rebuilt by Brahma. In their Rig-Veda Book, we find prayers to some 70 objects, each serving as a deity. The concept of god Brahma is similar to the concept of Trinity in Christianity. The Brahma is responsible for all workings of the world and everyone is a part of him. Different gods are viewed as different aspects of him ,IS MY UNDERSTANDING CORRECT ?

Wrong. The concept, which you are talking about, is very different from the concept of Trinity in Christianity.
The concept of Trinity in Christianity is not about Indian concept of Creator, Preserver and Destroyer manifestations of God.
It is amazing that you got such a wrong understanding of this.

Yes u are understanding is correct till this line..."The Brahma is responsible for all workings of the world and everyone is a part of him. Different gods are viewed as different aspects of him"..... AS BRAHMA is not solely responsible for all wrkings of the world surely he is called as PITAMAHA dat means a grand father....but in hunduism every god represents sm whr sm important part of the world as in hindu customs even nature's every element is worshiped as the god in the nname of vaayudev..god of air....agnidev god of fire, varun dev god of rains etc. As in hunduism even all these are worshiped as they gives us life and due to them only one lives on earth and to live in this world just food and shelter is nt enough one needs lot more thn that so is the way of giving ur reagrds wid such a way called devotion t all of them in the names of gods.... it doesnt mean dat brahma is thr in all these in a different forms offcourse they all are creation of him and including brahma everything ...more

Every religion devised traits and traditions according to their culture ,the time,and grasping power of its audience .We cannot equate them with one another . Religion and culture are often interlinked and relevance to its times . Every attempt was noble in motive and holy in purpose Christians in the West living in cold atmosphere bury the dead .In India we cremate the dead .The climate decide the religious culture. we must decide and try to understand it according to their respective culture.
