THE MEANING OF THE TERM HINDU
Since Hinduism as Sindhu Dharma refers to all the religions and philosophies of India, it naturally includes Buddhist, Jain and other Indic traditions. In this regard Hinduism is not limited to the Vedic  tradition and accepts both Vedic and non-Vedic streams.

On the other hand, the Vedic tradition itself is pluralistic and is not limited to existing Vedic paths. It is  based on the great Vedic statement, "That which is the One Truth, the sages speak in many  ways (ekam sad vipra bahudha vadanti)." The Vedic tradition, therefore, has the basis to integrate  all the dharmas of India including those that regard themselves as non-vedic.
