The origin of the oldest world religion, Hinduism can be traced as far back as 10,000 B.C. The key beliefs formulate the basis of Hindu Mythology. Reincarnation and re-creation are recurring themes. After death each soul will be born again into a new living body many times.
The most famous epics of the legends are written in the Sanskrit language. The first is Ramayana which chronicles the life and journeys of Rama. The second epic, Mahabharata is the longest epic ever written and encapsulates the Bhagawat Gita which eventually became the sacred scripture of the Hindu religion.
