Nine Beliefs of Hinduism
1. Hindu believe in the divinity of Vedas, the world’s most ancient scriptures, and venerate the Agamas as equally revealed. These primordial hymns are God’s word and the bedrock of Sanatana Dharma, the eternal religion which has neither beginning nor end.
2. Hindu believes in a one, all-pervasive Supreme being who is both immanent and transcendent, both creator and unmanifest reality.
3. Hindu believe in the universe undergoes endless cycles of creation, preservation and dissolution.
4. Hindu believe in karma, the law of cause and effect by which each individual creates his own destiny by his thoughts, words and deeds.
5. Hindu believe that the soul reincarnates, evolving through many births untill all karmas have been resolved, and moksha, spritual knowledge and liberation from the cycle of rebirth, is attained. Not a single soul will be eternally deprived of this destiny.
6. Hindu believe that divine beings exists in unseen worlds and that temple worship, rituals, sacraments as well as personal devotionals create a communication with these Devas and Gods.
7. Hindu believe that a spiritually awakened master, or satguru, is essential to know the Transcendent absolute, as are personal discipline, good conduct, purification, pilgrimage, self-inquiry and meditation.
8. Hindu believes that all life is sacred, to be loved and revered, and therefore practice ahimsa, “noninjury”.
9. Hindu believes that no particular religion teaches the only way to salvation above all others, but that all genuine religions paths are facets of God’s pure love and light, deserving tolerance and understanding.
