[In Hinduism, the term "bearer of burdens" is often used to refer to a deity, usually a god or goddess, who is believed to carry the burdens and troubles of their devotees. The concept of a deity as a "bearer of burdens" embodies the idea that the divine entity takes on the worries, struggles, and challenges of their devotees, providing them with comfort, strength, and guidance. This symbolism reflects the deep faith and belief in the compassionate nature of the divine and the interplay between the human experience and the spiritual realm.]
