How does Hinduism spread from India to the United States?
The Hindu faith is a multi-ethnic and multi-religious group that originated in India in the fourth millennium B.C. It is one of the world’s oldest religions and is practiced by some 12.5 billion people, including millions of Hindus.
Its followers have been scattered across the world and, as the population of the U.S. has grown, the faith has increasingly come to dominate American culture.
In 2016, there were more than 8 million Hindus living in the U to 1.2 million in the rest of the country.
The religious group is often called the “third great religion” because of its many branches and the diversity of its beliefs.
It is a highly evolved and multidimensional religion that emphasizes harmony, love and kindness and is rooted in ancient Vedic and Hindu teachings.
Hinduism is also the religion of India and the country’s largest religion, the Hindu Mahasabha, which is based in the northern Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
Its adherents worship three goddesses who are considered the gods of life, love, prosperity and wealth.
Hinduism is a religion of peace, love of humanity and equality.
