Hinduism is the oldest still relevant religion in India. There was not a person who founded the Hinduism religion, it was developed by many people over time. The early Hindu religion is called vedism. The vedism religion is a collection of sacred text that is called Sanskrit. Vedism began to be called Brahmanism because of their ability to preform perfect rituals.
Hindus believe that deities are different faces of Brahman. They also believe that that each face represented different aspects of Brahman. The most powerful deity was Indra. Indra was the deity of thunder, and people described him going across the sky with lightning bolts as weapons and riding blazing gold chariot or a full white elephant. The deities of Hindu religion control all the aspects of Hindu life
The Hindu belief of Samsara is the cycle of reincarnation, life, death, and rebirth. Samsara discontinues when the soul no longer continues this cycle, and is reunited with the Brahman. The dharma and karma are very large factors of this cycle, determining the next life the soul is reborn as. Samsara is the overpowering process for the soul, and is controlled by Brahman.
