Hinduism developed from the religion that the Aryans brought to India with.It was the religion of ancient people called Aryan("noble people") whose philosophy, religion, and customs are recorded in their sacred texts(known as Vedas). These texts were initially handed down by word of mouth from teacher to student. It was not until much later that they were actually written down.

Beliefs

Hindus do not separate religion from other aspects of life, for them it is an inextricable part of their existence. Its fundamental doctrine is karma, which deals with the transferability of the soul. The principle of reincarnation is a cornerstone of Hinduism; a soul moves upward or downward according to the individual’s behavior.

Hinduism diffused into Southeast Asia (mostly India) and into the island of Bali in Indonesia. Three Gods rule the world. Brahma: the creator; Vishnu: the preserver and Shiva: the destroyer. Lord Vishnu did his job of preserving the world by incarnating himself in different forms at times of crisis.

Hinduism's main theological belief is in one divine and omni present being called Brahma. The Hindu truly believes that Brahman is unknowable but there are countless sects which describe their God in a highly specific way. The Brahman is the central theological idea both sacred books.
