WHY HINDUISM? I chose Hinduism as the religion I was going to do my project on because this religion has intrigued me from day one and caused me to still seek more information about it even after week 2. I love how personalized this religion can be to the believer. There is no cookie cutter image of how one should practice Hinduism; guidelines are provided however, the belief system works, and “reality” works different for every believer.
HINDUISM DEFINED/FOUNDATION One of the oldest religions in the world The term “Hinduism” originated in the 19 th Century from British writers and was used to define the religious ideas practiced in India Began in the Indus Valley: Now Modern Pakistan Monotheistic religion that is often mistaken for a being polytheistic Origins of Hinduism are unknown and unclear because of how dated the religion is(approx. 4000 years old) 2300 B.C.- 1500 B.C. Migration of Indo-Aryan People blended with Indus Valley indigenous people- Vedas No clear founder Mixture of many traditions and philosophies Closely related to Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism Sources: (history.com) (brittanica)
