Hinduism FAQs

Hinduism shouldn’t be viewed as a religion, but more a way of life. Here are a few of the most common que

Why does Hinduism have so many Gods?

Hindus all believe in one Supreme God who created the universe. He is all-pervasive. He created many Gods, highly advanced spiritual beings, to be His helpers.

Do Hindus believe in reincarnation?

Yes, we believe the soul is immortal and takes birth time and time again. Through this process, we have experiences, learn lessons and evolve spiritually. Finally we graduate from physical birth. 

What is Karma?

Karma is the universal principle of cause and effect. Our actions, both good and bad, come back to us in the future, helping us to learn from life’s lessons and become better people.

Why do Hindus worship the cow?

Hindus don’t worship cows. We respect, honour and adore the cow. By honouring this gentle animal, who gives more than she takes, we honour all creatures.

Are Hindus idol worshipers?

Hindus do not worship a stone or metal “idol” as God but instead worship God through the image. We invoke the presence of God from the higher, unseen worlds, into the image so that we can commune with Him and receive His blessings.

Are Hindus vegetarian?

Hindus teach vegetarianism as a way to live with a minimum of hurt to other beings.

What is the Hindu holy book?

The Veda, which means “wisdom”, is comprised of four ancient and holy scriptures which all Hindus revere as the revealed word of God.

How do Hindus view other religions?

Hindus honour all religious traditions and the people within them. While regarding our faith as uniquely endowed, we believe that there is no exclusive path, no one way for all.
