The personal aspect of the Ultimate Reality is known as Saguna Brahman, that is Brahman with attributes. Saguna Brahman is the creator, sustainer and controller of the universe. Saguna Brahman cannot be limited by one form and is therefore worshipped by Hindus in both male and female forms. As the male aspect, Saguna Brahman is called by various Sanskrit names, such as Ishvara, Parameshvara, Param„tma, Maheshvara, and Purusha. These Sanskrit names represent more or less the same concept as the word God in other religions.

As the female aspect, Hindus refer to Saguna Brahman by various names, such as Divine Mother, Durg„ and K„lÓ. Hindus further worship the male and female aspects of Saguna Brahman in many forms, called deities.
