Religion Correction/edit

I have to find the following for Hinduism. can someone correct them for me please.

what i need to find:
Country of origin
My answer: India

Historical figures and events
My answer: Theres no founder. Hinduism was developed out of Brahminism

Central Believes:
My answer: Brahman, the universal soul or god. Hinduism believe that their is a part of Brahman in every one and this called the Atman. Reincarnation and Karma.

Nature of God
My answer: They believe in one god, Brahman but they prey to Brahma, vishu, shiva.

Texts
My answer: The four vedas (Rg-veda,Yajur-veda, Sama-veda, Atharva-veda. And the upanishads (the mystic and philophical)

Ritual and Practice (sacred elents and their meanings)

My answer:Practices-Worship (the integral part of the faith), Cremation(the dead burn not buried),Comphance with the rules of the caste system (society divided into different groups)

Ethics and Morality
My answer: They stand for Moksha-the release of the soul(atman) from the cycle of rebirth. In order to achieve this. The Hindus need to accept one of the paths which are: Path of knowledge, Path of meditation, Path of devotion, path of good works.

The only thing that I'd correct is about the gods. Hindus believe in many gods, but Brahma is the most important god.

The rest of your answers are great!


DId i do better this time than last time. THanks for revising it for me.
