Hinduism differs from Christianity and other Western religions in that it does not have a single founder, a specific theological system, a single system of morality, or a central religious organization. It consists of " thousands of different religious groups that have evolved in India since 1500 BCE ." Hinduism has grown to become the world's third largest religion, after Christianity and Islam . It claims about 762 million followers - 13% of the world's population. It is the dominant religion in India, Nepal, and among the Tamils in Sri Lanka. According to the " ," there are about 1.1 million Hindus in the U.S. The " American Religious Identification Survey " is believed to be more accurate. They estimated smaller number: 766,000 Hindus in 2001. Still, this is a very significant increase from 227,000 in 1990. Statistics Canada estimates that there are about 157,015 Hindus in Canada. Hinduism is generally regarded as the world's oldest organized religion.

Introduction to Hinduism
Statistically, there are over 700 million Hindus, mainly in Bharat (India) , and Nepal. Hinduism is referred to as Sanatana Dharma, the eternal faith. Hinduism is not strictly a religion. It is based on the practice of Dharma, the code of life. A detailed explanation of Hindu texts are found in Veda page and the links pointed to from there. Since Hinduism has no founder, anyone who practices Dharma can call himself a Hindu. He can question the authority of any scripture, or even the existence of the Divine. The following article is based on my limited understanding. While religion means to bind, Dharma means to hold. What man holds on to is his inner law, which leads from ignorance to Truth. Though reading of the scriptures (shastras) would not directly lead you to self-realization, the teachings of the seers provide a basis and a path for spirituality. Despite being the oldest religion, the truth realized by the seers prove that the Truth and path provided by Hinduism is beyond time. Hindu Scriptures are broadly classified into Shruti (meaning 'heard')

An Introduction
It has been pointed out by Dr. Arnold J. Toynbee, in A Study of History, that the principal civilisations of the world lay different degrees of emphasis on specific lines of activity. Hellenic civilisation, for instance, displays a manifest tendency towards a prominently aesthetic outlook on life as a whole. Indian civilisation, on the other hand, shows an equally manifest tendency towards a predominantly religious outlook. Dr. Toynbee's remark sums up what has been observed by many other scholars. Indeed, the study of Hinduism has to be, in a large measure, a study of the general Hindu outlook on life.

    Sida fr¥n utbildningsradion.
    Hinduismen är, efter kristendom och islam, den tredje största religionen i världen. Cirka 800 miljoner människor är hinduer. De allra flesta bor i Indien. Orden "indier" och "hindu" har gemensamt ursprung. I Sverige finns knappt sextusen hinduer. De flesta är indier från Indien, Sydostasien och Östafrika. Många är indier som flytt från Uganda. I Sverige finns bara ett hinduiskt tempel. Det ligger i Mariestad. Hare Krishna-rörelsens tempel finns på nio platser i landet. Dessa tempel besöks även av hinduer.
    Elefantguden Ganesha OM PROGRAMMET
    I radioprogrammet "Världsreligioner i Stockholm. Möte med en ung hinduisk kvinna" samtalar programledaren Håkan Johanson med
    23 åriga Era Kapilashrami . Hon utbildar sig till bergsingenjör vid KTH (Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan). Era är född i Sverige av indiska föräldrar. - Det är väldigt individuellt hur man utövar den här religionen, säger Era. Hemma hos henne har de ett litet tempel där hon ibland ber eller mediterar. Familjen och släkten träffas ofta vid någon av de många hinduiska högtiderna. Då förekommer det att de ber eller mediterar tillsammans.

    Hinduism and the belief in rebirth
    According to Hinduism a soul reincarnates again and again on earth till it becomes perfect and reunites with it Source. During this process the soul enters into many bodies, assumes many forms and passes through many births and deaths. This concept is summarily described in the following verse of the Bhagavad gita: "Just as a man discards worn out clothes and puts on new clothes, the soul discards worn out bodies and wears new ones." (2.22) According to Hinduism a being has to live many lives and under go many experiences before it attains perfection and becomes one with the Divine. The Hindu theory of creation suggests that creation begins when the individual souls becomes separated from the undifferentiated One. It continues as the evolution of life and consciousness in matter progresses. During this process some of souls journey back to God through the transformation of matter or prakriti in which they were hidden. The remaining souls continue their existence and rejoin Him in the end, not through transformation but through a process of great destruction. Thus the great cycle of creation, stretching over millions of years, comes to its logical end. Once the creative process is switched on, the individual soul hides behind the false personality called jiva, the subtle body and an outer personality called the mind and the body or the ego. The is made up of the subtle body, the subtle mind and a little bit of discretionary intelligence called buddhi. The ego is made up of the gross physical body, the surface consciousness consisting of innumerable desires and impulses. Since the Jiva and the ego have no idea of Truth or reality, they suffers from ignorance and illusion. They succumbs to illusion and suffer from the delusion of the outer mind. They behave selfishly as if they are different from the rest of creation and end up with suffering, indulging in acts of self perpetuation.
