Recommended Posts

Hari you said:

You have to remember that the word Hinduism refers to the whole of Indian subcontinent's many religious traditions and philosophies.Many with opposing beliefs and practices.

Can you provide the list of all the traditions and philosophies so we can discuss them one by one?

I'm no expert.I don't know all the Indian religious traditions.But from what little knowledge I do know, I'll refer you to:

1. Shaivism

2. Vaishnavism

3. Saankhya

4. Nyaya

5. Yoga

6. Mimansa

7. Vedant

8. Brahminism

9. Tantra

10. Siddha tradition

10. "left hand" paths like Aghori, Kapalika, Kala Mukh

I have a reference book, but am too lazy to look through!
