Hinduism – World View and Key Tenets

Hinduism is the oldest of all living religions, practised by approximately 1.2 billion people around the world. Its varied rituals, philosophies, temples, mysticism and ways of living have sometimes prompted the question whether it is an organised religion at all. This talk will show the existence of a common thread, based on the scriptural authority of the Vedas, running amidst the diversity perceived. This common thread also forms the basis for the world view of Hinduism and the origin of its key tenets that make Hinduism remain relevant, endearing and enduring in modern society.
