Hinduism is the oldest religion in the world and no one knows when it started. Hinduism is a way of life, integrating the religious, spiritual, cultural, moral and ethical aspects of life. Hindu religion is also known as Sanatan (eternal) Dharma (laws of nature). Sanatan Dharma is based on the teachings of Veda, the holy book. OM is the most sacred sound and all prayer or mantras begins with this sound.
The essence of Hindu religion is that God exists in all creations of life. They believe that the Supreme God controls the entire universe through three major qualities represented by the trinity. Hindus believe in triology – Bramha, Vishnu, and Shiva
- Bramha is the creator
- Vishnu is the keeper
- Shiva is the destroyer
This keeps the life cycle in order
The fundamental concept of Hinduism is that God is one but has many attributes. The different gods and goddesses are mere representations of the powers and functions of the one Supreme God. Hindus believe that God can be worshipped in diverse forms or in his formless state. Hindus believe that life does not end with death. The soul is immortal and eternal.
