Hinudism

ByM.K. Gandhi, Neerja Arun Gupta

It is the good fortune or the misfortune of Hinduism that it has no official creed. A man may not believe even in God and still he may call himself a Hindu. Hinduism is a relentless pursuit after truth and if today it becomes morbid, inactive, irresponsive to grow, it because we are fatigued; and as soon as the fatigue is over, Hinduism will burst forth upon the world with brilliance perhaps unknown before. Of course, therefore, Hinduism is the most tolerant of all religions. Its creed is all-embracing. One need not despair of ever knowing the truth of one's religion, because the fundamentals of Hinduism, as of every great religion, are unchangeable, and easily understood. Every Hindu believes in God and His oneness, in rebirth and salvation. Hinduism tells everyone to worship God according to his own faith or dharma, and so it lives at peace with all the religions.
