The Creation of Hinduism

Hinduism was first created sometime in between 2300-1500 BC. An extremely developed civilization in the Indus River Valley with it's own religions and culture is believed to be the beginners of Hinduism. The belief is local, regional, caste, and community-driven practices influence the interpretation throughout the Hindu world. Yet a common thread among all these variations is belief in a Supreme Being and adherence to certain concepts such as Truth, dharma and karma. 3 main gods are worshiped; Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu.

What is the Importance of Hinduism today?

Hinduism teaches us it is worth to stress the scientific approach and openness towards things, the proof of which lie through all its scriptures very rich in knowledge covering a large panorama, be it astronomy, mathematics, alchemy, health and personal growth. The inventions and discoveries by the Hindu sages who also formulated the number system are in-numerous which one finds scattered all throughout the scriptures. Hinduism does not invent God but it discovers. It neither stops at the human boundary confused and failing to go forward, but gets to the divine aspects supported by facts. This makes their findings more logical and realistic and even the super human descriptions experiencable if not explainable.
