    Hinduism is the dominant religion in India, where Hindus form about 84 per cent of the total population. Hinduism is also known as "Sanatan Dharma" or the everlasting religion. Hindu religion is based on the concept that human and animal spirits come back to earth to live many times in different forms.

A strong wind in India which brings heavy rains in the summer and drought conditions in the winter. Himalayan Mountain Range. A Hindu holy book.

    Hinduism is believed to have started with the migratory waves of Aryan people into India during the second millennium BCE. Very little is known about all of it, but Vedic literature talks about the people that inhabited the Indian subcontinent. The native people were nomads and they were very scattered about through the land.   Hinduism is the dominant faith of India, practiced by over 80% of the population. As such, it is essentially an Indian phenomenon, and because religion is central the way of life in India, Hinduism is an integral part of the entire Indian cultural tradition.
