Thirty Three Koti of God.

• Introduction:

Many of us believe that in Hindu religion there are 33 koti of God (33 crore of God), which is totally absurd. The actual significance of 33 koti Gods- devtas is thirty three types of Gods- deities.

There are
8 Vasus;
11 Rudras;
12 Aditya;
2 Ashvins.

Summation of which equals 8 + 11 + 12 + 2 = 33 Types of Gods.

Let’s Dive into the brief knowledge of Gods.
In this blog I will be covering those questions that are related with “33 kotis of God”.

Blogs are the best way to save time and gain knowledge silently, isn’t it?

•What are Ashta (8) Vasus?

The eight Vasus (elements) contain- Dyaus (sky), Vayu (aur), Prithvi(earth), Nakshatra(stars), Agni (fire), Varuna(water), Surya (sun) and Chandra(moon).

•What are Gyarah(11) Rudras?

The eleven Rudras include, Tvasta, Aja, Sambhu, Ekapada, Ahirbudhnya, Rudra, Hara, Trayambaka, Aparajita, Tribhuvana and Ishana.

•What are Barah(12) Adityas?

The twelve Adityas(personified deities)- Aryaman, Vishnu, Indra, Varuna, Tvashtar, Savitr, Bhaga, Visasvat, Mitra, Amsha, Pushan lastly Daksha.

•What are the two(2) Ashivins?

These two Ashivins (twin solar deities) are Indra and Prajapati.

All these deities make up to thirty-three devtas.


Yajnavalkyathe writer of Brihadaranyaka Upanishad also said that,
“These are the manifestation of them, but there are only 33 Gods.”

Which suggests us that this concept is not made by peoples or conspiracy theorist of today’s era, this is an age-old belief.

•Which are those 33 Gods?

~The Eight(8) Vasus, the Eleven(11) Rudras,  the Twelve(12) Adityas and Two(2) of Ashvins.

Is it true that there are really 33 Gods inside the mother Cow?

The Cow is considered as the mother of 7 Vedas in the human body.

The seven mothers are as follows:

  1. The mother who gave birth
  2. The nurse at the time of birth
  3. A brahmin’s wife
  4. The Queen
  5. The Spiritual master’s wife
  6. The Earth
  7. The Cow

People are indeed believers, The Hindu religion has said that these thirty three deities of Gods-Devas reside in the Cow and that’s why we call her Gau-mata, गौ माता.
