Homework Help: hinduism

Posted by y912f on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at 7:30pm.

I have to answer these questions in a few sentences, but I can't figure the first one out. Different websites tell me different stuff..

1. How was the world created?

2. Description of God
There is no single deity, instead there are thousands of gods. (needs more details)

3. What happens after death?
Hinduism has a strong focus on reincarnation, or rebirth. For Hindus death is not the end; there is something more after that. The belief is that once a Hindu dies, his/her soul will take on a different body and be ‘reborn’. The Bhagavad Gita explains that just as the body changes clothes so does the soul change from one body to another.

4. Where is this religion mostly practiced?
All though Hinduism is spread around the world, it is primarily practiced in India.

5. How many people practice this religion?
Ranking as the worlds third largest religion, Hinduism has close to 900 million followers.

For most of the questions I have one sentence answers..I really wanna change that, but I'm getting confused by all the different information I'm finding.
