Hinduism is one of the oldest and largest religions in the world, originating between 1800 and 1000 BC in India with nearly 1 billion adherents. [1] Unlike most other major religions, Hinduism has no single founder, encompasses many religious beliefs, practices, and denominations, and is looks to a number of key texts for authority, such as the Vedas, the Upanishads, and the Bhagavad-Gita. Hindus believe that God (Brahman) is a universal spirit that everyone is a part of, that Jesus (an incarnation of Vishnu) was a guru whose death does not atone for sins, and that upon death man is reincarnated into either a better status (good karma) or to suffering (bad karma) based on their behavior during life.
