There is only One. He exists as both Nirgun (formless) and Sirgun (all the forms of creation.) All forms arise from the One and fall back into the One.

Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are simply ways of envisioning the three aspects of Sirgun: God the Creator; God the Sustainer and God the Destroyer. Of course it's a never-ending spiral birth-life-death-rebirth, etc. etc.

Early religions had no words. Most people couldn't read. Only Brahmins could read and write. That's the reason for the Hindu pantheon of gods and goddesses. They are visual representations (like a comic book for children) of all the many aspects of the One which Guru Gobind Singh Ji enumerates in Jaap Sahib.
