THE UNITY OF THE VEDIC AND SHAIVITE RELIGIONS
Hinduism and its branches like Shaivism are not ethnic teachings, they are universal. Nor is Shaivism a religion apart from Hinduism. Nor is Hinduism a composite of different religions including Shaivism. The Hindu trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva form an integral teaching and none of these deities excludes or denigrates the others. The Hindu tradition is a teaching not given relative to Dravidians only but for all humanity. The attempt to ethinicize Hinduism and divide it up into opposing doctrines has been part of an attempt of outside influences to dominate or convert the Hindus. 

Dravidians have long been important contributors and supporters of all aspects of Hinduism or Sanatana Dharma. They have added many unique teachings of their own. But to think that Hinduism must be divided up into Dravidian and Aryan religions, which are fundamentally different from each other ,in order to give the Dravidians credit for their accomplishments is an idea that only serves to divide up the tradition along questionable ethnic lines which serves no real purpose other than to destroy the universality of the teaching.
