Hinduism and Buddhism 

What is Hinduism?

Hinduism is an Indian religion as well as dharma or way of life.

Hinduism is the world’s most ancient religion, according to many researchers, with its origins and customs that date back to more than 4,000 years. With 9 million people who follow it, Hinduism is the third-largest religion after Christianity in the world, following Christianity and Islam.

Hinduism is not a single religion, no single sacred text. It was created by diverse groups across India. The Aryans have added their beliefs in religion to the beliefs that were a part of their neighbors in the Indus Valley.

The Hindu beliefs are

  1. God is one of them but is known under many names.
  2. All things in this universe are part of a powerful, unchanging force known as Brahman.
  3. Brahman is too difficult for the average person to grasp.
  4. They worship gods who provide a tangible shape to Brahman.
  5. All are facets of Brahman. Every human being has a crucial existence, also known as Anatman. However, the atman is simply a different term for Brahman.
  6. 6. The final goal is moksha, the union with Brahman. As this typically takes more than one life, Hindus believe in reincarnation.
