The history of Indian Religion E-mail
The oldest religion of India is the Vedism. This religion came in 1500 v. Chr. to India by the Aryan tribes slowly past the Indus Civilization-repressed. The supporters of the Vedism believed in the existence of multiple gods. There were many male gods worshiped in connection with the celestial and natural forces.

The Vedic priests were known as Brahmans. In the Vedic ceremonies turned to bring the ritual animal sacrifices in which an alcoholic beverage (called soma) was drunk. The faithful brought the gods for their benevolence and offers protection to enforce.

Over the centuries, the Vedic rites increasingly complex, there emerged a number of rules, chants and prayers. Only trained Brahmans and priests could perform these rituals correctly. We believe that making mistakes at the rites could lead to disaster.

In response to this very complex rituals and the fact that the Brahmans were always more power, the Vedic religion began to change. In the 6th century BC ... Verisme was slowly supplanted by Hinduism. The Vedism and Hinduism are two different religions. The Hindus believe that the fate of mankind depends on his deeds. These acts are in Hinduism "karma" said. A soul that has a good karma will be rewarded with a better life during the next incarnation. Souls with a bad karma will be punished for their sins, whether in the current or the next incarnation. Such people will ever again in this world goes.

Some of the oldest civilizations and religions of the world have their origin in India. Many have a religious origin and are often determined by the caste system. Many traditional Indians are vegetarian, while others meat goats, sheep and chickens and eggs and fish. Sheep are kept for both wool and meat. Muslims and most Hindus do not eat pork.

A large part of the rural population of India lives in villages, but the big cities are growing very fast. New Dehli, Bombay and Calcutta each have more than ten million inhabitants (Bombay more than fifteen million inhabitants). The growth of cities is mainly caused by the increase in the number of jobs in administration, establishment of large industries near the population centers and the growth of trade.
