Hinduism found most notably in India and Southern Asia. It is old religion and between 900 million and 1 billion people around the world belong to this faith. It stands behind Christianity and Islam as the most populous religion.

Hindus believe in the Vedas and venerate the Agamas as equally revealed. Its text is known as Sanatana Dharma, “the eternal law” or the “eternal way”beyond human origin. The ancient scriptures of Hinduism are in Sanskrit. These texts are classified into two: Shruti and Smriti.

Hinduism has no founder or date of origin. Hinduism is not a homogeneous, organized system. Many Hindus are devoted followers of Shiva or Vishnu, whom they regard as the only true God, while others look inward to the divine Self (atman). But most recognize the existence of Brahman, the unifying principle and Supreme Reality behind all that is.

Hindu religious life might take the form of devotion to God or gods, the duties of family life, or concentrated meditation. Given all this diversity, it is important to take care when generalizing about “Hinduism” or “Hindu beliefs”.
