“Considered one of the oldest religious traditions, Hinduism does not have a unified dogma, but it is a set of beliefs and cults, without a centralized organization or priestly orders, product of the fusion of the different traditions of the ancients peoples established in the basin of the Ganges River. In Hindu belief, behind the Māyā, the visible universe where the cycles of creation and destruction occur, there is an eternal and unalterable universe, of a spiritual nature, which human beings aspire to reach, thus abandoning the cycle of reincarnation or samsara.”
