The Vedic Tradition or Hinduism is more than a religion, but a way of life, a complete philosophy.

It is based on Universal Spiritual Truths which can be applied to anyone at anytime.
It is called Sanatana-Dharma, the eternal nature of the soul.

It recognizes that there is one Supreme Being with no beginning or end, the all in all, the unlimited Absolute Truth, which can expand into many forms.

That Supreme Being is found in the spiritual realm but also lives in the heart of all living beings.

The Vedic tradition recognizes that the individual soul is eternal, beyond the limitations of the body, and that one soul is no different than another.

The soul undergoes its own karma, the law of cause and effect, by which each person creates his own destiny based on his thought, words and deeds. The soul undergoes this karma in the rounds of reincarnation.

The soul incarnates through different forms (called samsara or reincarnation) until it reaches liberation (moksha ...more

Hinduism is a continuously evolving religion,
with a lot of flexibility already built into it.
There is a comprehensive scope and opportunity for
Hinduism to mould itself according to the demands
and aspirations of the modern world.
Since Hinduism is not afraid of scientific
explorations, nor the technological progress of
mankind, it has the ability to align itself with
both science and spiritualism in a balanced manner.
Because of its emphasis on self exploration of
Truth, without any allegiance to any particular
dogma or prophet, Hinduism does not have to force
the theories of Darwin or Mendel out of school
rooms in order to justify itself, nor suffer from
the compulsions of suppressing the freedom of human
thought on medieval values in order to continue
itself. A Hindu has the freedom to superimpose
modern knowledge on his ancient theories and
reinforce his own beliefs. He has the freedom to
criticize certain aspects of his own religion,
but ...more

I only know 2 things about Hinduism..
Reincarnation - another chance to do what you missed out in this life and
Advaitism.... Aham Tvat Asi ..or I am Brahman , or Brahman is my real Self as propounded by Adi Shankaracharya..
These two tenets are unique to Hinduism and NO other faith (except those that originated from Hinduism.) accepts these two beliefs. . Thus I am very comfortable in my faith and I pray daily to God that even if i have to be reborn a million times I want to be born a Hindu and if by mistake God sends me to some other faith i wish to convert to Hinduism as soon as possible.

This is a classic question and a perennial one too! The light that was shed on it by Dr.Radha Krishnan, that Hinduism is, more than a religion, a way of life. Makes you give a thought to the basic characteristics of Hinduism.
So, let me try to espouse it a little, according to my knowledge. Hinduism is the result of a constant and recurrent evolution that started long, long ago. When? No one knows!
This religion as we know it, has adapted itself to time and the environment of that time. People who follow Hinduism have always found answers to all their questions, and yet have been given the freedom (by Hinduism) to agree or disagree with those answers. There never was and never will be any hard and fast rules and regulations governing Hinduism. On the contrary, people who believe in it, deal with Hinduism in accordance with the scope, capacity and range provided to them by Hinduism itself. It is a religion that started the very concept of religion! Hinduism set on the chain reaction ...more
