Hinduism is not a very inclusive religion.. it is rigid in acepting others.. that is why Buddhism and Jainism evolved here... that is the main reason.

Hinduism i.e Sanatan dharma is the oldest Dharma in the world.....that was the first dharma .....one giving one example: in america, now people are heading towards hinduism....they want to reconver into hindu......as per hindu dharma we people are having faith on 5powers e.g Jaal,Vayu, agni, akash, prithivi ....similarly in Maxico we can find people are worshiping to same 5powers.....means earlier they were hindus and due to any reason the have converted into other religions with the time.....Buddhism: goutam was from sakya dinesty..... sakya singha was a trible.....but were belongs to hindu religion...... Goutam after getting the Knowledge he became BUDDHA..... and due to non-voilence(AHIMSA) policy people have adopted his footstep.....and after a long time, it became familier i.e buddhism.... yes the main reason was castism.....

Buddhism as taught by Gautama Buddha was a protest against Brahmanical orthodoxy (not hinduism). He taught the masses the original and pure philosophy without any intermediaries. His disciples went East and West. In the West, they were responsible for movements of reform even in Egypt and Judaea. The Essenes and the Nazarenes were taught by Buddhist reformers; from them Jesus learned, and from his teachings has Christianity been derived.

Buddhist monks had the habit of traveling world wide to spread the wisdom of Buddha. But Hindus settled at the most at Himalayas.
