Hinduism as a religion

Unlike most religions, Hindu has no original founder. Instead it evolved from religions and belief systems thousands of years old into it’s current form. It’s largely practiced in India where nearly every citizen is a Hindu. Also interesting is that Hinduism doesn’t have a book to refer to or a central collection of beliefs upon which it’s based. Instead it’s a collection of many belief systems all tied to the same basic ideas.

It’s that very fact that makes Hinduism such an interesting and tolerant religion in many ways. If the religion itself allows for so many different traditions and styles of worship then it also suggests tolerance in other areas, something its followers practice (although not in every way). Hinduism is not easily explained because of these qualities but when experienced it’s hard not to come away feeling like you just went though something remarkable and beautiful.
