Hinduism is believed to be one of the oldest living religions on Earth, with origins tracing back to the ancient Vedic civilization in India. Hinduism is a vastly diverse and colorful religion. Hindus believe in reincarnation, the law of cause and effect (karma), a single Divine Being with multiple manifestations, and the desire of all beings for liberation from the cycle of birth and death. One of the most cherished values of Hinduism is “ahimsa,” or non-violence. In Hinduism, religious belief and the practices of everyday life are inseparable. An example of this is how ahimsa is honored through a plant-based diet, which shows compassion to all beings.
