Itz the live and let live policy of Hinduism. It is one religion which believes and follow Sarva Dharma Samanvaya.
The other reasons are the immense depth of knowledge, wisdom and the diversity has made this religion more sturdy to take all kind of impact. By law of nature, it is suvrival of the fittest though it took various changes over centuries. It is practical and more versatile religion which is adopting the changes and integrated seamlessly with all kind of knowledge - econamics, politics, literature, sex, science & technolagy, etc. etc.

Reasons are many but its substance is the freedom of thoughts of Hindus. Because there is no dos and donts, no commandments, summary of the religion is realization, renunciation and reconciliation ( kshama) and with professional demarcation in society (Varnashram) gave people immense strength to tolerance, acceptance, adaptation and innovation to protect the essence of the dharm (religion). Hindus preference of living is 1st Dharma,2nd Arth, 3rd Kama and last Moksha. Whereas those who wanted to ruin it have 1st kama,2nd arth, 3rd expansion of faith and there is no LAST.
What west considered cowardice (patience) and life negation (believe in karma) as weakness of Hindus are in fact the strength on which Hindus fought and are still fighting all odds against almost official anti Hindu forces lead by foreign and resident non Indian initiatives.
