Hinduism is the predominant and indigenous religious tradition of the Indian Subcontinent. Hinduism is often referred to as Sanātana Dharma (a Sanskrit phrase meaning "the eternal law") by its adherents. Generic "types" of Hinduism that attempt to accommodate a variety of complex views span folk and Vedic Hinduism to bhakti tradition, as in Vaishnavism. Hinduism also includes yogic traditions and a wide spectrum of "daily morality" based on the notion of karma and societal norms such as Hindu marriage customs.

Hinduism is formed of diverse traditions and has no single founder. Among its roots is the historical Vedic religion of Iron Age India, and as such Hinduism is often called the "oldest living religion" or the "oldest living major religion".

A large body of texts is classified as Hindu, divided into Śruti ("revealed") and Smriti ("remembered") texts. These texts discuss theology, philosophy and mythology, and provide information on the practice of dharma (religious living). Among these texts, the Vedas are the foremost in authority, importance and antiquity. Other major scriptures include the Upanishads, Purāṇas and the epics Mahābhārata and Rāmāyaṇa. The Bhagavad Gītā, a treatise from the Mahābhārata, spoken by Krishna, is of special importance.


 

 




the divine chanting of
SHIVA SAHASRANAMA
from RUDRA YAAMALA TANTRA!


"...I have come into this world to experience this:
men so true to love
they would rather die before speaking
an unkind word,

 

men so true their lives are His covenant -
the promise of hope.

 

I have come into this world to see this:
the sword drop from men's hands
even at the height of
their arc of rage

 

because we have finally realized
there is just one flesh

 

we can wound."

~Hafiz~
