Unlike a religion in the Western sense, Hinduism is a way of life-based on the teachings of ancient sages and scriptures such as the Vedas and the Upanishads.
Without a founder or a core scriptural doctrine, Hinduism is defined by a rich variety of ideas and practices from various religious and cultural groups throughout India. Because of this diversity, Hinduism is a continuously evolving religious tradition with contributions from many individuals.
Composed of layers of complexity, Hinduism incorporates a basic mindset that all beings have divine and immortal souls working through the cycles of birth and death to reach ultimate spiritual growth.
