Transcript of Hinduism

Hinduism
The ancient religion of the Indus River Valley
Goal of Life

Location
Though there are people who practice Hinduism all over the world, they are primarily located in India. Today, eighty percent of Indians living in India are Hindu.
Founding
Hinduism doesn't have a single founder, but instead it developed over time in the early civilizations of the Indus River Valley, around 30 B.C.
Salvation
You can reach salvation by building up good karma to reach Nirvana. Karma is the energy that returns to you based on how you live your life (ex: if you're kind, positive energy will surround you. If you're hateful, negative energy will surround you).

If you've collected enough good energy when you die, then you will be reincarnated (or reborn) into a higher social status than you were in your previous life.

Once you've climbed the social ladder by collecting good karma, you will reach Nirvana - the ultimate state of peace and tranquility.
