Hinduism, also known as Sanatana Dharma, is the world’s oldest living religion. A specific date of Hinduism’s origin is unknown, with most scholarship pointing to Hinduism starting in the Indus Valley of India between 2300 B.C.E. and 1500 B.C.E. Many believers, though, have long considered Hindu wisdom to have existed since before recorded time began.
In relating to other religions, Hinduism asserts that it is not only harmful, but inherently flawed to insist that one’s own path towards God is the only true and meaningful path. Based on this firm pluralistic belief, Hinduism has never sanctioned proselytization.
