Where was Hinduism founded?
A lot of people still don’t know what Hinduism is, or why people think they know what it is.
Its the name of a religion that began in India sometime between 10th and 12th century, when its followers lived in what is now Pakistan.
Its been the subject of much speculation, with some people arguing that the word means the “greatest religion in the world.”
Others argue it means a kind of pantheon, a collection of deities that worshiped one god.
“Hinduism is not a religion,” Harvard historian Mark D. Goldfeder told me.
“[Hindu] religion is a religion.
It’s a pantheon of gods that are worshipped as gods by the Hindus.”
The pantheon is not just a collection, but also a hierarchy.
Some Hindus claim that the pantheon includes the Hindu gods of the Vedas and Upanishads, as well as the deities worshipped by the followers of other religions, including Islam.
It also includes a collection known as the Veda, which is written by the first five centuries of Christianity and contains thousands of books and verses.
The texts, and the people who wrote them, are thought to have been compiled by a group of “Gnostic” scholars.
So what is Hinduism?
In a way, it’s just another religion, according to Goldferner.
When I was a kid, my mom and I were fascinated by Hinduism, so I started going to Hindu temples to study the Hindu scriptures, he said.
After my first year of high school, I started studying the Bhagavad Gita, which contains chapters from the Vedic scriptures.
That led to a deeper understanding of the Hindu pantheon.
I then went to a small university, where I was enrolled as a graduate student, studying the Hinduism of Mahabharata, one of the most popular novels in India.
My professor, Professor P.S. Thampi, had this amazing book in his office.
It was a collection written by a guy called Mahatma Gandhi, and it was really a huge deal.
It had a lot of references and examples from different parts of the world, so it was a huge resource for me, I thought.
In those days, the book was considered sacred literature, so its a little weird to think that I could learn about this religion through a religious text.
A few years later, I got a job teaching English literature at a large university, and I started to hear from some Hindu students that they wanted to study their own religion, so they started writing me books and poems, and that kind of gave me a sense of interest.
Around 2005, I decided to pursue my own interest in Hinduism.
Since then, I’ve taught in various Hindu-related fields, including English literature, religion, history, philosophy, and law.
Recently, I received an email from an undergraduate student who wanted to do an essay on Hinduism for a class project.
I wrote him back and asked if I could help him.
He emailed back and said, I don’t think I have the time, so would you like to take over as a translator for the project?
I said, Sure, of course.
He asked me to send him the text of the Bhakti, the sacred text.
I did, and after a few days, he got the book.
While he translated it for the class, I wrote an essay, and one day, I came across it.
It said that the Bhachari was a Hindu goddess, that she was the mother of the gods, and was the wife of the Vishnu.
That’s when I knew.
There is a lot that I think people need to know about the Bhavacarya.
