Hinduism is, in many respects a unique phenomenon in the History of World Religions. Indeed it can hardly be calld a religion in the popular understood sense of the term. Unlike other religions, Hinduism does not regard the concept of God as being central to it. It is neither a system of theology nor makes any dogmatic affirmation regarding the nature of god. Similarly, Hinduism does not venerate any particular person as its sole prophet or as its founder. It does not also recognise any particular book as its absolutely authoritative scripture. Hinduism does not it accept any doctrine as its dogma. It can also not be identified with a specific moral code. As a religion, Hinduism does not convey any definite or unitary ideas. There is no dogma or practice which can be said to be either universal or essential to Hinduism as a whole. Yet Hinduism has persisted through centuries as distinct relitious entity. Hinduism is, in a sense, an ethnic religion. It was not revealed to a prophet and then either propagated among or imposed upon the people. The Hindus are verily born and grow in Hinduism, and this condition of birth is so compulsive that many persons who are born of Hindu parents generally conform to Hinduism though they may not believe in many of its doctrines and practices.
