The Religion of the Hindus

The Religion of the Hindus concepts of samsara, which refer to the never-ending cycle of life, death, and rebirth, and karma are central to the Hindu worldview (the universal law of cause and effect). "Atman," which translates to "soul," is one of the most fundamental concepts in Hinduism. According to this school of thought, all living things possess a soul, and together, these souls make up the one, ultimate soul. The term "Hindu" is really an exonym, and despite the fact that Hinduism is considered to be the oldest religion in the world, many Hindu adherents refer to their faith as "Santana Dharma."
