Hinduism is more than 5000 years old. Hinduism finds his origin in North-India and Pakistan.
Hinduism is also known as Sanatan Dharma. Sanatan Dharma means eternal law.
It is very difficult to describe Hinduism. Hinduism doesn’t have a historical founder or just one holy Book. Hinduism is very diverse.
There are common characteristics. All Hindus believe in reincarnation. There is a cycle of life and death of the soul (Samsara). The way of the soul depends on the Karma. Karma is the result of all deeds and non-deeds. Moksha (Enlightenment) is the ability to free oneself from the eternal cycle of life and death.
Hinduism is not merely a religion but it is a collection of religious concepts and doctrines of life.
