Explain the basic features of Dravidian and Aryan religious structures which became the basis of Hinduism.

I jest need some more to add on to what I already have. Thanks.


Dravidian (Harappan) religion had strong beliefs about fertility. Harappan worshipped gods and goddesses that they associated with procreation. Many archaeologists think that at least some of the Harappan deities survived to become part of the Hindu religion.
Later in the Vedic age, as Aryans became dissatisfied with the performance of ritual animal sacrifices, many thoughtful people left their villages to live alone and reflect on current religious values. These “mystics” were considerably impressed by the Dravidian people’s belief in fertility.
Dravidians also believed in what would later become reincarnation.
