Hinduism embraces a great diversity of beliefs. They accustome to creeds, confessions, and carefully-worded belief statements.
One has a their own right and opinion to their idea of a god. This attitude towards religious belief has made Hinduism one of the more open-minded religions when it comes to evaluating other faiths. These fundamental Hindu beliefs include: the authority of the Vedas (the oldest Indian sacred texts) and the Brahmans, the existence of an enduring soul that transmigrates from one body to another at death; and the law of karma that determines one's destiny both in this life and the next. Most Hindus are devoted followers of one of the principal gods Shiva, Vishnu or Shakti, and often others besides. Yet these all are regarded as manifestations of a single Reality. The ultimate goal of all Hindus is release from the cycle of rebirth. (LR)
