In The Beginning. . .
Hinduism started in India. It started as a culture, but then turned into a religion. It is a philosophy that teaches enlightenment.
The Founder That Didn't Exist...
There is no known founder of Hinduism because it wasn't founded as a religion. It was originally just a culture. In not very long, the culture became a religion because so many people followed it.
Basic or Complicated Beliefs...?
The Hindus believe that you must follow the Eightfold Path. The Eightfold Path is a code that means you have to be kind to everyone and seek enlightenment. They believe that unless you reach Nirvana, you will be reincarnated over and over again until you reach enlightenment. Reincarnation is the belief that the soul is reborn into another body after you die. This will only happen if you have not achieved Nirvana.
The Spreading Of The Peanut Butter Religion
Hinduism spread all over Central Asia and India. It was mostly an Indian religion, though. People today continue to follow Hinduism.
