Most importantly, Hinduism is a great spiritual path with yogic traditions of meditation, devotion and insight, in which religion in the outer sense of ritual and prayer is only secondary. Its wealth of teachings on mantra, meditation, prana, kundalini, chakras and Self-realization is perhaps unparalleled in the world.

Because of its cultural and spiritual sides some people say that Hinduism is not a religion but a way of life. Yet though it is a way of life Hinduism is also a religion in the sense that it teaches about God and the soul, karma and liberation, death and immortality. It has its holy books, temples, pilgrimage sites, and monastic orders like other major world religions. Hindus have a deep faith in their religion and its traditions. 

Thousands if not millions of Hindus have died for their religion in the many holy wars that have targeted them over the last thousand years. They refused to convert even when faced with threats of death and torture. Both Christianity and Islam found converting Hindus to be particularly difficult, not because Hindus responded to assaults on their religion with force, but because their faith in their own religion and its great yogis was unshakeable.
