Define Hinduism


Hinduism primarily is not considered a religion... it is a way of life! Why? Hinduism never developed after the following of an enlightened one... like Buddhism, Christianity and Islamic Dharma. Buddhism followed the teachings of Gautama Buddha, Christianity the primary teachings of Jesus Christ and Islamic Dharma from the teachings of Prophet Mohammed.

In Hinduism... initially came Vedas... the words of God that were invoked by the sages and saints of that era even before the advent of Lord Krishna! The four primary Vedas were voluminous... and unreachable to the masses... namely Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda!

About 3600 years before came Lord Krishna... an Avatar of his era (God manifest in human form) and precipitated the voluminous Vedas to Bhagavad Gita (also termed Vedanta... end of the Vedas). Now the gist of the sacred scriptures was available to mankind in one single document... the sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism!

Apart from the Vedas, Hinduism consists of above 200 Upanishads (Independent treatises) composed and compiled by various sages and saints of that era! Every single Upanishad is a class in itself. In Hinduism apart from the Vedas, the Upanishads, the sacred Bhagavad Gita... we have two voluminous epics... the Ramayana and Mahabharata!

Every single sacred Scripture of Hinduism has its merits. As is the belief of one, so is the following! One who believes in Lord Rama... follows his teachings in Ramayana ceremoniously!

The word Hinduism evolved from Muslim invaders... that invaded the present India numerous times from the East. India was divided from the eastern region by river Indus. As the Muslims pronounced H for I... they started spelling the people beyond river Indus as Hindus... and came into being the so-called religion Hinduism.

Those who believe in God Almighty and follow the path of spirituality... believe more in Bhagavad Gita than Ramayana. Bhagavad Gita is a sure shot method for reaching God Almighty at the earliest... gaining enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).

The presence of thousands of sacred scriptures... different beliefs and faiths in Hinduism do not call for a centralized system! It simply cannot be. The best aspect of Hinduism is... anyone can follow Hinduism... its precepts without converting to Hindu religion... becoming a Hindu. Hinduism has universal appeal... anyone world over can follow the doctrine of Hinduism.
