Hindu gods were basically very powerful warriors. They always had to fight against devil and evils. Having many hands helped them in war.
Hindu God like Visnu is called 'catur-bahu'. 'Bahu' etymologically means the fore-arm, the arm between the elbow and the wrist, the arm as a measure of length; it is also extrapolated to the space between the arms. The number of Bahu is also a tacit communication of the strength of that god. Based on our research we find a common thread of symbolism used in depicting the gods with varying number of arms. While most of the gods have four arms, some gods and goddesses have ten (Devi Durga), or even infinite arms as in the form Visswarupa (cosmic form of Visnu). The probable massage - is to tell that the existence of the god in a particular dimensional space. To quantify the 'n' in n-D space. Here Visnu is said to be existent in four dimensional space-time. Hindu gods with many pairs of arms: Vishnu with four arms: Vishnu is the only Hindu god who would consistently have four arms. Vishnu is symbolic of the status quo maintaining Semi voluntary force. Since it is made of two forces viz. Voluntary force and Involuntary force, it enables us to do two things at a time. Even when we are doing just one thing we can use one force for execution and the other for control. Therefore, Vishnu, who symbolizes this forces, is represented with two pairs of arms. Incarnations of Vishnu after Narasimhavatara, where status quo function is not necessary, have a single pair of arms only. Other Hindu gods with four arms: Ganesha is a popular Hindu god who is always represented with four arms. Since two pairs of arms indicate the ability to execute and the simultaneous ability to control what is executed, two pairs of arms were added to practically all gods and goddesses. It is for this reason that, with time, many of the Hindu gods became less popular. The other god who is invariably presented with four arms is Brahma. However, Brahma is a rarely worshiped god. Goddesses with more than four arms: The Shakti goddesses may have up to ten pairs of arms. However, these are goddesses of illusion, that enable us to create an illusion that we are greater than we look. Thus, these goddesses would be holding weapons of all other gods. Krishna and Vishvarupa: Krishna usually would have a single pair of arms. However, in Vishvarupa he may have countless pairs of arms. In this form Krishna is considered as the supreme Hindu god and thus he would have features of all Hindu gods, including the Shakti gods, who themselves have up to ten pairs of arms. The number of arms indicate the options we would have. Other factors remaining constant, 1. Gods with single pair of arms make us progress faster 2. Gods with many pairs of arms make our life safer, but retard progress 3. Gods with two pairs of arms are the optimum gods
