One God (Brahman) with many names Empty One God (Brahman) with many names

As illustrated in the following hymns (a, b and c),

(a) "They call him Indra, Mitra, Varuna, Agni, and he is heavenly nobly-winged Garutman. To what is One, sages give many a title, they call it Agni, Yama, Matarisvan." Rig Veda (Book 1, Hymn 164.46)

(b) "He in his might surveyed the floods containing productive force and generating Worship. He is the God, and none beside him. What God shall we adore with our oblation!" Rig Veda (Book 10, Hymn 121.Cool

(c) "God is one in all, but it seems as if he were many; He (as Vishnu / preserver) supports all beings, from Him (as Rudra / destroyer) ensues end, and from Him (as Brahma / creator) ensues beginning." Bhagavad Gita (Ch. 13 - V. 16).

Seva Ji,

Why are you highlighting all this? What is so original to Hindu thought in what you have highlighted?

That God is one is original Hindu thought?

I'm really curious now.

Seva Ji,

Bhagvad Gita is Veda? Is that what many people consider?
