|Hinduism is one of the oldest civilization and
spiritual tradition in the world, Hinduism is often compared with a
giant banyan tree—in its shade a thousand faiths bloom. Hinduism is
not a religion in the sense we Westerners think of a religion, such
as Christianity, Islam and so on. It is more a code of life (Dharma)
that is practiced by hundreds of millions of adherents over pa
period of several millennia. A Hinduism term paper will take a brief
look at this complex practice.
Unlike most of the world’s leading religions, Hinduism has no one founder. It is called by its practitioners Santana Dharma, or The Eternal Faith. Dharma, the code of life, means “to hold”. Thus Hindus hold to an inner law, which leads from ignorance to truth. As one expert on Hinduism said, one can take Hinduism as a whole, from its literature to its rituals to its art, and compress it into one affirmation: You can have what you want. Within that affirmation are three things all people want – Being, or the gift of life; knowledge; and joy. While Hinduism does not dismiss worldly possessions or worldly pleasures, they must be obtained and enjoyed within the context of life, knowledge, and joy.
As Hinduism is rich in philosophy, science, mathematics and in other respects. A survey shows that the there are around 6,00,000 manuscripts were written over a period of 10 millennia. But unfortunately most of them were lost over a period of time. Today there were 5,00,000 registered manuscript names and brief information has been registered. But around 60,000 original manuscripts has been preserved (fully or partially). And the preservation of these valuable manuscripts has been the mission of life time. As the volume of preservation & research work enormous, it requires lot of resources in terms of people and infrastructure.
