Hinduism is the oldest and possibly the first religion practiced on Earth, the followers are innumerable. To call Hinduism a religion is not justified, as it is more than that, it is a way of life.
“Hinduism” is a blanket term covering several religions and does not refer to a single religion. “Hinduism is both a civilization and a congregation of religions; it has neither a beginning, nor a founder, nor a central authority, hierarchy nor organization. It is the glorious catholicity of Hinduism that one can be a believer in one God, or multiplicity of Gods or even none at all. Hinduism does not expel much less crucify alleged non believers. Every attempt at a specific definition of Hinduism has proved unsatisfactory in one way or another… Hinduism is not a revealed religion and, therefore, has neither a founder nor definite teachings or common system of doctrines… It has no organization, no dogma or accepted creeds. There is no authority with recognized jurisdiction. A man, therefore, could neglect any one of the prescribed duties of his group and still be regarded as a good Hindu.”
All Hindus venerate one Supreme Reality; however they call it by numerous names. There is no interminable hell-fire, no condemnation, in Hinduism, and no natural abhorrence – no sinister constrain that contradicts the will of God. Hindus trust that the universe was made out of God and is saturated by Him- &;a Supreme Being who both is shape and plagues frame, who makes, manages and devastates the universe just to reproduce it again in unending cycles. Every spirit is allowed to locate his own particular manner, whether by dedication, severity, reflection, yoga or benevolent administration.
Hinduism’s three columns are sanctuary love, sacred text and the master supporter custom. Hinduism unequivocally proclaims the legitimacy of the three universes of presence – physical, astral and profound – and the heap Gods and devas dwelling inside the internal universes. Celebrations, journey, droning of blessed psalms and home love are changing practices. Family life is solid and valuable. Cherish, peacefulness, great direct and the law of dharma characterizes the Hindu way.
Hindus are liberally tolerant of different religions. Hinduism clarifies that the spirit resurrects until all karmas are determined and God Realization is accomplished. All souls, no matter what, will accomplish this most noteworthy profound summit; however, it might take numerous lives. This is a supernatural religion, driving enthusiasts to by and by experience its everlasting truths inside themselves, at last achieving the zenith of cognizance where man and God are always one
Hindus lean toward incineration of the body upon death, instead of internment, trusting that the spirit lives on and will possess another body on Earth.
