What is Hinduism?

By- Danielle Hinojsa

Hinduism at a glance.

Hinduism is unlike most religions. It has no singer funder, no commonly agreed set of teachings, and no single scripture. It has over 900 million adherents worldwide, majority coming from India and Nepal, but also exists among significant populations outside the sub continent.

And then some

In some ways Hinduism is the oldest living religion in the world, or at least it's elements. Throughout its history there have been many key figures teaching its philosophy. There have also been many written books. Because of this, writers refer to it as a way of life instead of a single religion. There is no holy book for Hinduism but there are scriptures. The term Hindu was derived from the river the Sindhu.
