Hinduism is a collective people that have different religious practices but were categorized as Hinduism as a whole. In this paper I will explain what actually makes up the Hindu religion considering there are different practices of it. I will describe cultural and societal influences that make Hinduism vital to the region it originates from. Finally I will explain the desire for liberation from earthly existence or life. In conclusion, from what I have read about this religion and what I have studied so far leads me to believe that the desire to leave the earthly existence is close to my own religion which is Christianity. The Hindu’s want to be rid of the wars, famine, pain, and all the negative things in this world. The liberation from earthly existence in my opinion is the desire to move on to a life that is free from any earthly life similarities. In my religion it is called Heaven, the Hindus just have a different name for this but, and to me it is the same belief. Hindu’s strive to be perfect just as Christians do and want to be rid of the cursed like life on earth. REFERENCES Living Religions, Sixth Edition, by Mary Pat Fisher. Published by Prentice-Hall.
