Today I will be writing about what I have learnt in the e-Yogi Gurukul 201 course. I have enjoyed my time in the courses and learned so many things about Hinduism. Hinduism is more than 5000 years old. It is one of the few ancient religions to survive into modern times. There is no founder, nor single prophet or initial teacher. Hinduism has many sacred texts and do not have a single holy book. Among these books are the Vedas. There are four Vedas, Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur veda and the Atharva Veda. The Vedas were passed down orally before being written down thousands of years later. The hindu philosophy was further developed and eventually became the Upanishads. This philosophy was restated in the Puranas, Ramayana, the Mahabaharta, as well as the Bahgavad Gita. Hindus believe that the soul is eternal and is reborn in different forms. This continuous cycle of life, death and rebirth is known as Reincarnation. What a person experiences in their future life depends on their actions in their past life. Hinduism respects other religions and acknowledges them for potential for truth in them. Hindus see the varieties of religions as a way to relate to god.
