Founder of Hinduism

Who is the founder of Hinduism?”  This is one of the most basic questions asked about Hinduism. It is so obvious because all the other religions in this world have founders. E.g. Christianity was founded by Jesus Christ, Islam was founded by Hajrat Mohammad Paigambar, Buddhism by Gautam Buddha and so on. So as Hinduism is a religion, there must be some founder. The answer for this question is that actually there is no single founder of Hinduism as Hinduism was not founded as a religion. It was a culture basically flourished in India, which later took the form of a great religion. It would be easy to understand who is the founder of Hinduism if you know what Hinduism actually is.

The modern form of Hinduism is actually a mixture of teachings from Vedas mainly plus teachings of ancient Rishis and some great saints and regional customs and traditions. Hinduism changes with time without disturbing its basic teachings and different deities, which Hindus worship. But Vedas are the main base of Hinduism.

Vedas are believed to be imparted from God to human beings some thousands years ago and were carried forward through teacher-disciple tradition (Gury-Shishya Parampara). So, as Vedas were created by God, we can say that God, Himself, is the founder of Hinduism, which he updates from time to time by reincarnating Himself on the Earth.

      ONE who is behind all this infinite process, the Continuum, beyond time and space is the Master Creator. We are not just an imagination but a moving intelligent particle of the Universe that has been around for billions and billions of light years constantly changing, revolving, evolving, recycling, appearing and dis-appearing! .

      Who is doing all this?

  4. When it comes to religion, it must be way of life. About becoming a good humankind to other living form.

    Every religion thought believers to do good thing.

    Our actual battle in this life is good against evil.

    As long you believe that this world created by almighty creator then you are a people who has been called the believers.

    The problem is when people has no more religion, they worship nothing. They believe of no god. They kills as they wished for nothing, they practice free sex, they rape others, took other’s belongings, increasing the damage to our world that are already old.

    Then the end shall begin as everything that was started must reach their end. What goes up must come down. All the sinners must punished !

  5. There is no founder of Hinduism. But there are some people who are the cause for the spread of hinduism. They are great saints, sadhus and the Lord itself who created Hinduism. It was not a religion but it was a way of life. Later, it was converted into a religion.Some poets who wrote poems regarding the culture and the traditions of Hinduism and the people who wrote epics are also a part of the people who are the cause for the spread of hinduism.

  6. Absolutely Hinduism is the way of life no one is regarded as the founder of this of this religion because in the past it was the culture of Indian people then later converted into a religion.

  7. Basically principles of all religions are same.It is also a true fact that we could so far found or traced founders and origin of various religions except Hinduism because initially Hinduism was a way of living as Humans and to distinguish themselves from other animals. As & when the wise, diligent and kind people (so called Rhishish or saints) of that time found that humans were behaving and living like animals. It is believed and found to be reasonable that in most of yugas when behavior of humans was extremely intolerable to mankind, Almighty had to Incarn or take birth among humans to take care of evil and establish the order to safeguard good people and good things in Universe. He did it through preaching, natural calamities or wars. Thus these many founders and many religions came in existence.

  8. Indeed the Hindu religion is the oldest of all religions present. However before the Hindu religion there was “a way of life” that was controlled by the teachings of the ancient Vedic scripture that was handed down by God himself.

  9. gods god shiva parmatma.. we are jeevatma god is every breath and every steps he is always always here hinduism founder is shiva parmatma ……… 4yuga 1st is krita yuga only god ..2nd dwapper yuga rushi santa sadus his all powers than ramayana mahabharath happens and than 4th kali yugas are upto 1 to 2016 runninig can not seen god power becouse ………….

  10. The religion is irrelevant, because the Deity is more important. Salvation or good karma shouldn’t solely be based upon what one does that will get them saved or incarnated into a better life but rather if the truth one believes in is strong enough to move one’s heart to do good deeds towards his/her neighbor(Family, friend(s), lover(s), stranger, etc.) or stand up for what is right against what is wrong whether one is alone or among others. Anyone can do good to others, it’s motive to do good deeds that counts. A rich man can donate tons of money to a charity with the motive of fame, it’s happened before. Why is this bad, one may ask? Because what that man believes in isn’t for the greater well-being of others but glory for himself. And I’m sure God or Buddha or Allah or any professed “good Deity(ies)” is not egotistic.
