World religion

These religions are found all around the world


Hinduism is a huge religion with 900 million people. It's one of the oldest religions in the world. The Hindu people can mainly be found in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Sri lanka, Pakistan, Malaysia, USA, South Africa, Myanmar. There is one big God named Brahman. They also have gods who control certain things like, shiva the destroyer, Kali is the kickass goddess of destruction, Ganesha the lord of good for fortune. The Hindus believe in many things like reincarnation, karma, moksha, and the caste system. Reincarnation is when a someone die and they were good in the last life they would be moved up in the caste system and if you weren't good you're soul would be in a body of an animal. Karma is all about a person decisions in there life If they did all things good then they would get all good thing and in their future life they would be moved up in the caste system and if you're the highest of the caste system it means you're karma was really good but if you're lower that means you had bad karma. Moksha is when you're soul is all done with the karmic cycle it becomes one with the Brahman when the last bodily incarnation dies. The caste system is the rank order of the Hindu religion the first is bhrman which is the priest and teachers, the second was the Kshatriyas which are the Warriors and kings.and the lowest of the low is the untouchables they don't communicate with anyone of the other caste or look at them.

This effects a Hindus life because they are restricted from things most people do I there daily life like marry anyone they want talk to anyone they want and look at someone if they wanted to. And they don't live life like normal people do because they believe that they have many lives.


It started with a guy named Siddartha Gautama, he was the Chiefs son of a tribal group when he turned 29 he left his family. To lead a "simple life" he tried to end the suffering of life. So he meditated under a tree for 49 days and he found his answer and then they called him Buddha the enlightened one p. They have to, control you're thoughts, practice meditation, say nothing to hurt others, know the truth, resist evil,free you're mind of evil, work for no others, and respect life. They also believe in the four noble truths suffering is universe everyone suffers, cause of suffering I'd desire, if you end you're desires suffering will end but you have to reach nirvana, follow the the eightfold bath. The eightfold path is right to understand, right of thought, right of speech, right of action, right of work, right of effort, right of mindfulness, right of concentration, through meditation you teach enlightenment, final goal is nirvana, union with the universe and release from recycle and rebirth, eightfold path is the middle way. They reject the caste system because they think it's unfair unlike the Hindus. The origin is India, the final resting place is for soul (nirvana). It's NOT a religion it's a belief.
