Welcome to the Hinduism Research Guide

This guide is a starting point for research in Hinduism studies. Click the TABS above to navigate to the appropriate section of the guide. 

Hinduism is the world's oldest extant religion, with a billion followers, which makes it the world's third largest religion. Hinduism is a conglomeration of religious, philosophical, and cultural ideas and practices that originated in India, characterized by the belief in reincarnation, one absolute being of multiple manifestations, the law of cause and effect, following the path of righteousness, and the desire for liberation from the cycle of births and deaths.

I will be updating the guide regularly and welcome your suggestions and feedback. You may leave comments on most areas of the guide.
