Hinduism is the world largest religion by number of followers (about 95% of all Hindus - India). Hinduism was formed in the 1st millennium AD in the process of the development of the Vedic religion and Brahmanism. The basis of Hinduism is the doctrine of reincarnation of souls (samsara), which happens in accordance with the law of retribution (karma) for the virtuous or bad behavior, determined by the supreme worship of the gods (Vishnu or Shiva) or their lifetimes and the observance of caste household rules. Religious ceremonies are performed in the churches, local or home altars in sacred places. In Hinduism the sacred one are such animals as cow, Snake River (Ganges), plants (lotus), etc. Hinduism forms an idea of the versatility and universality of the supreme deity. In modern Hinduism, there are two trends: Vaishnavism (Vishnu worship as the supreme god) and Shaivism (Shiva worship as Almighty God).

Religion is a special form of world awareness that is determined by belief in the supernatural, which includes a set of moral norms and behaviors, rituals, religious acts and bringing people together in an organization (church, religious community). The religious system of the world is based on religious beliefs and it is connected with a person's attitude to the superhuman spiritual world, to a kind of super-human reality that a person knows about and he will in some way orient his life. Faith can be supported by a mystical experience. Fundamentals of religious beliefs of most world religions are written by people in the sacred texts, which were dictated or inspired directly by God or gods, or written by people who reached the highest spiritual state, great educated teachers or Saints, etc. The history of religions and religious sects is incredibly interesting. Here are presented the main religions in the world.
