Trimurti seems to be more part of the theologians' Hinduism than of the priests' and worshippers' Hinduism, though. From what I've read, in practice Hindus are either Vaishnavite or Shaivite, with a minority who focus on one or another aspect of Shakti instead. I would think that receiving actual devotion was more important to divine power.
