Hinduism can be seen in many forms. Worshipped as a religion, it has some 40,000 gods, headed by Brahma. Yet intellectually, these gods are simply symbolic aspects of nature and behaviour.
The Hindu lives in the material world, but realizes it is merely an illusion with a greater reality behind it. This reality imposes Karma, or moral behaviour, upon the person. He does good through Yoga, which can be practiced from good behaviour, to learning, to meditation.
The Hindu world is cyclical, with everything going back to a beginning. This is best known through Samsara, or ‘wheel of rebirth’, where the person is reincarnated after death, his place dependent upon his behaviour.
