Predominating Deities - an essential subject
We are not alone. This is one of the first things one finds out from reading vedic scriptures. Not only are there other planets inhabited by living entities but we come to understand that there are even living entities on this planet which we are not able to comprehend. The Vedas speak of other realms and universes with different levels of advancement and different living atmospheres and conditions which we can not accommodate in our limited minds.
The Vedas describe that there are spiritual realms and material realms and all planets have their protectors - predominating deities who control and take care of not only the planet but also subtle or gross elements that are connected to it.
While the predominating deities of the material universes are indeed powerful living entities they still take pleasure in always worshiping the Supreme Lord Narayana the predominating deity in the spiritual world by chanting His glories as His loyal servants.
