November - Hindu Heritage Month

Hinduism is said to be the oldest living religion in the world and is India’s spiritual and cultural heritage. Hinduism teaches spirituality. Hindus believe that all humans are the embodiment of truth, consciousness and bliss, and that they are born as divine beings.

Hinduism is better known as Sanatana Dharma or eternal natural law. Hindus believe in the law of karma (cause and effect) and reincarnation (cycles of rebirth). Hindus strive to attain Moksha, the freedom from cycle of rebirth, through the pursuit of truth and, as divine beings, to perform seva or selfless service.
