HINDUISM 2 Hinduism The Hindu religion is a combination of beliefs and religions, similar to Christianity. People group all religions that follow the beliefs in Jesus Christ into one category. The Hindu religion can be looked at the same way, a group of religions that have the same beliefs or outlooks on life together. Conferring with the text by Mary Fisher (2005), “According to tradition, there are actually 330 million deities in India. The feeling is that the divine has countless faces” and “some scholars of religion argue that these ways are so varied that there is no central tradition that can be called Hinduism proper” (P. 69). It would be hard for people to narrow down Hinduism to one true religion for the area. If the beliefs of Hinduism are looked at duty, social welfare, natural law, health, and ethics, all religions have similar beliefs. If religions are put into categories of similar beliefs then all religions could be considered part of Hinduism.
