All religions, includmg Hinduism, have sects. Hinduism is extremely catholic, liberal, tolerant, and elastic. This is the wonderful feature of Hinduism. A foreigner (visiting India) is struck with astonishment when he hears about the diverse sects and Creeds of Hinduism. But these varieties are really an ornament to Hinduism. They are certainly not its defects. There are various types of minds and temperaments. So there should be various faiths also. This is but natural. This' is the cardinal tenet of Hinduism. There is room in Hinduism for all types of souls-from the highest to the lowest- for their growth and evolution.
