Hinduism: With its root going beyond 1000 BC, Hinduism is the oldest religion in the world and there is a belief that we all go through a series of reincarnations and our rebirths are determined by our karmas, until we attain moksha. The central figure is the Hindu Trinity of Brahma the Creator, Vishnu the Preserver and Shiva the Destroyer. Vishnu the Preserver is believed to have come to earth in ten incarnations the popular ones being Rama and Krishna, the heroes of Ramayana and Mahabharata. These are the two major sources of Hindu belief and observance and are based on historical legends, myths and folklore. On equal importance to Hindus are the Vedas, the oldest written religious texts in the world, the Upanishads and the Puranas.
These form the basis of the Hindu religion. Rajasthan also has its share of myths and folklore. Custom which had to do with social welfare has promoted and kept alive over the years in the form of rituals and is still religiously followed several folk heroes are worshipped and one can see hundreds of simple shrines in every village. Stones are painted and established in tiny temples under trees and near wells. Folk heroes like Pabuji, Gogaji, Baba Ramdeo, Harbhuji and Mehaji are revered.
