Hinduism is an Indian religion and dharma, or way of life and it is the world's third-largest religion. Hinduism is the religion of the majority of people in India and Nepal. Unlike most other religions, Hinduism has no single founder, scripture or commonly agreed set of teachings. However, most Hindus do believe in a Supreme God, whose qualities and forms are represented by the multitude of deities which emanate from him.

Hinduism is closely associated with the other Indian religions of Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism. Hindus believe in the existence of a birth, death and rebirth cycle which is governed by Karma. The main Hindu texts are the Vedas which is a Sanskrit word meaning 'knowledge'. Hindus celebrate many holy days such as Diwali (Festival of Lights).
