see we all are literate persons so try to understand the concept of spirituality not religion.

religion is made by human being but spirituality is original thoughts which come from nature and god.

Quran, geeta and ramayan, bible etc everything brought up in world from human beings so make and manage the society. of fcourse these are tools for betterment of society . time to time according to intellectual level of society the process of communications changes long ago there was best way to form a story to convey the things or say in form of shloka or Ayata and any other scripts to fear from god.

fear from god was one best and good technique to control and teach this society in earlier hence lot of stories made .Geeta ramayan kuran everything is story nothing is truth , even whatever format we know about God is also not true , this is basic concept.

then Question stays lord hanuman , we know from ramayan, and lord rama , we know from ramayan and lord krishna , we know from Geeta are these lord not real then ?
Answer is they exist ,but in what way or in what form we read in stories that is not truth or even it may be truth but we have no best tested evidence of these things.
ok .

As I think there is only one God these are the faces of him or you can say form of energy like for mechanical task there are mechanical energy , for electrical task electrical energy ,but energy is single and one which is known as Jesus,Allah and Ishwar. Also these names come from geographical/social cuture etc
for example is boy born in india hindi resion his name will be Ishwar,if he born in england in english speaking area his name will be God, in islamic area where urdu and arabic it willbe Allah.

now question is what the points which we do like prayer and special ppooja and celebration like Navratri,Diwali, ramnavami etc in hindu ?
according to SANKRUTI these things designed to make a healthy way of life. Even earlier temples was nothing but like Vidhan sabha or white house .White house may be called Church,in very early stage the temple was place where intellectuale collect and they form the system and rule of society,in this regards if you see indian culture our saint design it in such way where everyday is special and lot of Festivals and celebrations. In compare to other society this much more.As we know the change is best way of happy and good life. Hence in Indian society this changes come frequently and many more times in comparison to others like Christians or Islam.
so this is accepted that the best life is in Indian culture.similar in islamic arab world & Rome Church world.
