Hinduism, now the third largest world religion, is a collective term applied to the many philosophical and religious traditions native to India. The word Hindu is derived from the Sanskrit word Sindhu, the Indian River, on the north western part of the Indian sub-continent. The sacred texts of Hinduism are the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and the epics, Ramayana and Mahabharata. Hindus believe that the Spirit or Soul, the true “Self” of every person called the “atman” is eternal. Hinduism allows real freedom of choice in worship.
