Matthew Nordquest RELS 201 Hinduism Examining the worlds oldest religion
Hinduism is thought to be the worlds oldest religion, with customs dating back more than 4000 years. It is difficult to trace Hinduism’s because there is no specific founder and it is not a single religion but a compilation of many traditions. It is believed that between 2300 B.C. and 1500 B.C. Hinduism formally started near what is now modern day Pakistan. Origins
Geography What could be considered the earliest Hindus were among the Indus Valley Civilization that developed along the Indus River Natural borders that included the Himalayan Mountains and the Arabian sea allowed the culture to flourish for thousands of years.
The Ganges River is thought to be sacred enough to purify all sins as it flows from Vishnu’s feet onto Shiva’s head and out from his hair.
Reincarnation is the cycle of the soul being born into a body, dying and being reborn again in a new body
