Hinduism is the oldest of the major world religions and, at 1.1 billion followers, is currently the third largest, behind Christianity and Islam. According to one view, a Hindu (an adherent of the religion) is one who believes in the philosophy expounded by the Vedas. Vedas are perhaps the world's oldest scriptures. Its basic teaching is that our real nature is divine. God, or Brahman as is commonly referred to, exists in every living being. Religion is therefore a search for self-knowledge, a search for the divine within the self. The vedas state that a person does not need to be "saved." He is never lost. At worst, one is living in ignorance of his true nature. The various gods and avatara that are worshipped by Hindus are understood as different forms which the ONE supreme god, Brahman, has taken in order to be approachable.


Islam is a monotheistic religion founded in the 600s based on the religious text known as the Quran. According to Islam, the religion was founded when Allah (God) sent an angel to Muhammad. The angel dictated a series of revelations to him, which Muhammad wrote down to form the Quran. Muhammed is considered to be the chief and final prophet. Adherents of Islam are called Muslims. Muslims believe in one God, the God of Adam, Noah, Moses, and Jesus, who are all regarded as prophets or "Messengers" before Muhammad. Muslims believe that Muhammad came to bring the final message of God, the correct path and true knowledge of the afterlife to pagan polytheists and to the Christians and Jews.
