Essence of Hinduism - Dharmic Religion - Karma, Moksha & Vedic Literature, India

Essence of Hinduism - Dharmic Religion - Karma, Moksha & Vedic Literature, India

Hinduism, the very ancient religion of the world, has its origin in a progressive way unlike other religions. The religion imbibed its basics far before million centuries, from the then Harappa and Indus valley civilizations. Hinduism provides a vast body of scriptures. It is impossible to define the principles and theories of Hinduism as it consists of both thesis and anti-thesis, both having the same importance. 

While the Dvaita (dualist theory) points out the existence of both God and human soul, the theories like Advaita (non-dualist theory) say both are same. The early Sanyasis and Gurus handled both spiritual and science theorems simultaneously. These scriptures expose a vast range of theology, philosophy, and myth providing spiritual insights along with guidance on the practice of dharma (religious living).

Among such texts, Hindus reckon the Vedas along with the Upanishads as being among the foremost in authority and antiquity. Other important scriptures include the Tantras, Puranas and the epics: the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. The Bhagavad-Gita, a deeply profound conversation excerpted from the Mahabharata, is widely seen as summarizing the spiritual teachings of the Vedas.
