Hinduism is a major religion that has numerous followers from all over the world.  Many people consider themselves Hindus. But what is the history of Hinduism? What is Hinduism about? 

Hinduism is the oldest living religion in the world. It has been around for more than 5,000 years. It has no geographical boundaries and has millions of followers all over the world. Most Hindus live in India, but there are many outside of India as well. Hinduism has more than a billion followers, making it the third largest religion in the world.

Hinduism is not a race. It is a way of life and a belief system. Most often than not, people who identify themselves as Hindus are actually people of many different races and ethnic backgrounds. This is because Hinduism is not a race but rather, a way of life that has been embraced by people of all races and ethnic groups. Secondly, Hinduism does have a distinct identity and it is different from other major religions such as Christianity and Islam. This is because Hinduism has certain beliefs and practices that are not common to either Christianity or Islam. For example, Hinduism does not believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. Nor does it believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. These are two major Christian beliefs. However, many Hindus do believe that certain individuals (but not all) were incarnations or avatars of God on Earth.

Hinduism has no central authority like the Pope is to Christianity or the Imam is to Islam. There is no single text that is considered the Word of God or the primary source of religious truth like the Bible or Qur’an are for Christians and Muslims respectively.

Hinduism is one of the oldest religions that have survived almost unchanged for thousands of years. It is the fastest growing religion in the world. It has numerous followers from all over the world. Many people consider themselves Hindus.

Soon after the birth of Christ, Hinduism was already around. It has many of the same basic beliefs and practices that were practiced by early Christians. For example, Hinduism and Christianity both believe in the Trinity; God as three in one. They both have the belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. But, there are some significant differences between the two religions. For instance, Hinduism has a belief in reincarnation, while Christianity does not. Also, there are many Hindu deities besides the God of Christianity. For example, there are several gods that resemble God to some degree. In Hinduism, there is also no requirement for people to accept Jesus Christ as their savior or to go to heaven after they die. There are many different branches of Hinduism. Many people are members of various sects or groups that they consider to be part of their religion. Each sect or group has its own specific beliefs, practices, and rituals. There are many different Hindu sects or groups. Some of these include: Brahmanism is the oldest form of Hinduism and it is the religion of most of India’s ancient rulers. The word “Hinduism” is actually derived from the Sanskrit term “Brahmajana”. This means “the religion of Brahma (God)”. Brahma is one of the three deities that make up the Godhead in Hinduism.

Moreover, Brahmanism was the religion of the Indo-Aryans who invaded India about 5,000 years ago. They created the first major civilization in India. Other ancient Indian religions include: Shaivism which is the second largest sect of Hinduism. Shaivism is named after the god Shiva. Shaiva literally means “the worship of Shiva”. Shaiva is a way of life and a belief system that emphasizes asceticism and meditative prayer. Shaivas believe in the teachings of the Vedas; the oldest sacred writings of Hinduism. Shaiva followers also believe in reincarnation. However, Shaivism emphasizes the worship of the god Shiva and they have numerous shrines and holy places dedicated to him. Most Shaivas live in the northern part of India. Shaivism was the primary religion of the Indus Valley Civilization which existed from 3500 BC to 2500 BC. Shaiva also has the distinction of being the predominant religion of the Mughal Empire which was the largest empire the world has ever known. Today, Shaivism has many millions of followers all over the world. Other Hindu sects or groups include: Vaishnavism is the second largest sect of Hinduism. It is named after the god Vishnu. Vaishnavism is a way of life and a belief system that emphasizes intense devotion to God and strict monastic living. Vaishnavas also believe in the teachings of the Vedas; the oldest sacred writings of Hinduism. They believe that the human soul goes through various cycles of birth, death, and rebirth until it eventually becomes an integral part of the Supreme Being.

Moreover, Brahmins are one of the four major ethnic groups in India. They are the priestly class of Hinduism. Their primary occupation has been the teaching and writing of the sacred texts of Hinduism. They are also the keepers of the traditional knowledge and culture of India. The other three major groups are the Kshatriyas, the Vaishyas, and the Shudras. These are the warrior, moneyed, and working castes of Hindu society. The four main castes are further divided into hundreds of thousands of sub-castes or gotras. Each gotra or sub-caste is identified by a different color. For example, if a person’s gotra is orange, they are an orange gotra. If their gotra is white, they are a white gotra. Each gotra is a distinct ethnic group with its own language, culture, and tradition. There are many different colors of gotras. The main colors are: Red (for example, the Kapardin gotra is the priestly caste of red-skinned people); Yellow (for example, the Bhatia gotra is the priestly caste of yellow-skinned people); Black (for example, the Dhurandar gotra is the priestly caste of dark-skinned people); White (for example, the Brahmin gotra is the priestly caste of fair-skinned people). Many Hindus have mixtures of these colors in their gotras. For example, a person with one drop of red blood in their veins could be considered to be a member of the Kapardin gotra.

Moreover, Brahmins are the priests and scholars who are considered the keepers of the religious tradition. They have been so for thousands of years. Brahmans are a very small percentage (about 2%) of the total population of India. Almost all of the rest of the Hindus are not Brahmins. The largest group is the Vaishnavas. They are very similar to the Brahmans except that they are much more accepting of women. Shaivism is the third largest sect of Hinduism. It is a very powerful and rapidly growing sect. They are known for their focus on the goddess Shakti. Shri and Swaminarayan are two examples of this particular sect. Shaivism is also the most likely of the three major schools of Hinduism to accept the other two as part of their tradition. Shaktism is the fourth largest school of Hinduism. They revere the goddess Shakti as the supreme deity. She is associated with energy and power. She is the consort of Shiva, the god of destruction. Shaktism is the most likely of the three major schools of Hinduism to accept the other two as part of their tradition. Shaivism and Shaktism are more accepting of women than Brahmanism and the other two major schools of Hinduism. Shaivism and Shaktism are both rapidly growing sects. Vaishnavism is the fifth largest sect of Hinduism. They have a very strong emphasis on Vishnu. He is the preserver and sustainer of the universe. Therefore, he is often called “the preserver of the world”.

Furthermore, Vaishnavism is the most likely of the three major schools of Hinduism to accept the other two as part of their tradition. Jainism is the sixth largest school of Hinduism. They revere the god known as Adinatha (the first) or simply the teacher or the Tirthankara. He is the holiest and the most important of all the Hindu gods. Brahmanism, Shaivism, and Vaishnavism are the three main schools of Hinduism. They are not the only schools of Hinduism. There are hundreds of smaller schools of Hinduism. Many of these are based upon the teachings and experiences of a single individual. However, they usually do not have any kind of organized religious community. Therefore, they do not have temples. They do not have any kind of clergy. Instead, they have what is known as a “living tradition”. Many of these schools are based upon the teachings and experiences of a single individual.

The sacred writings of Hinduism are called the Vedas. These are the oldest written religious texts in the world. They were composed by various sages over a period of several thousand years. The earliest parts of the Vedas were probably written down around 1500 BC. They were put together in an oral tradition for many centuries before they were finally written down. The Vedas consist of hymns, incantations, prayers, and other forms of religious expressions. They are believed to be the direct word of god. Therefore, it is impossible to separate the true meaning of the Vedas from the direct word of god. The Vedas are the foundation of Hinduism. They are studied by all Hindus as a guide to living a good life.

There are four principal Vedas. They are the Rig Veda, the Sama Veda, the Yajur Veda, and the Atharva Veda. There are many other Vedas. Some of them are associated with one of the four major schools of Hinduism. Others are not. Each of the four Vedas have 103 chapters. These are known as hymns.

Without a doubt, these hymns are some of the most beautiful poems in the world. These hymns are not only sung in religious ceremonies. Many people read them out loud in the privacy of their homes. Many Hindus believe that the Vedas were given to man by a supernatural being called a Deva. Others believe that they were written by a natural human being. Either way, the Vedas were revealed to humans by gods and goddesses. In the Hindu tradition, the Vedas are considered to be the words of god himself. Therefore, it is believed that the Vedas are the final word from god. It is believed that the Vedas are the word of god himself. Therefore, it is believed that the Vedas are the final word from god.

Hinduism was and still is a very misunderstood and a very misrepresented religion. Many people think that Hinduism is nothing more than a strange or a weird cult. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Hinduism has been around for thousands of years. It has influenced the cultures of Asia, Europe, and Africa. It continues to do so even today. Hinduism is one of the major religions of the world. It is the third largest religion in the world. There are approximately 1.1 billion Hindus on this planet. Hinduism is the fastest growing major religion in the world. According to the most recent statistics available, there are approximately 740,000 Hindus in America. That means that there is a significantly higher percentage of Hindus in America than there are Muslims, Jews, or any other religious group.
