Very interesting Aileen. Some Hinduism makes more sense to me than other religions, for the reason you allude to - ideas of Gods etc are are seen as different, imperfect ways of trying to access the divine.
More inclusive and modest than the usual attitude - 'We're right, and the rest of you are doomed!''
I don't see anyone as 'doomed' no matter which religion they follow or which God they worship. It's how they live their lives that matters....in my opinion of course.
