Hinduism is the predominant and indigenous religious tradition of the Indian subcontinent. Hinduism is often referred to as Sanātana Dharma (meaning eternal law) by its adherents. The Generic types of Hinduism that attempt to accommodate a variety of complex views span folk and Vedic Hinduism to Bhakti tradition, as in... Vaishnavism. Hinduism also includes yogic traditions and a wide spectrum of daily morality based on the notion of karma and societal norms like Hindu marriage customs & others.Hinduism is formed of diverse traditions and has no single founder. Among its roots is the historical Vedic religion of Iron Age India, and as such Hinduism is often called the Oldest living religion or the Oldest living major tradition.Demographically, Hinduism is the world's third or fourth largest religion, after Christianity, Islam, and possibly Buddhism, with more than a billion adherents, of whom approximately over one billion, live in the Republic of India. Other significant populations are found in Nepal, Bangladesh and the Indonesian island of Bali A large body of texts is classified as Hindu, divided into Śruti (revealed) and Smriti "remembered) texts. These texts discuss theology, philosophy and mythology, and provide information on the practice of dharma (religious living). Among these texts, the Vedas are the foremost in authority, importance and antiquity. Other major scriptures include the Upanishads, Purāṇas and the epics Mahābhārata and Rāmāyaṇa. The Bhagavad Gītā, a treatise from the Mahābhārata, spoken by Lord Krishna to Warrior Arjuna is of special importance and significane.

Christianity is a monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth as presented in the New Testament. Christianity comprises three major branches: Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy (the two split from one another in 1054 A.D.), and Protestantism (which came into existence during the Prot...estant Reformation of the 16th century). Protestantism is further divided into smaller groups called denominations.Let us have a glimpse of Christianity in brief to derive some valuable thoughts fom my write-up placed below!

Bishwanath Singh :
Most Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God, God having become human and the savior of humanity. Christians, therefore, commonly refer to Jesus as Christ or Messiah. Christians believe that Jesus is the Messiah prophesied in the Hebrew ...Bible The foundation of Christian theology is expressed in the early Christian ecumenical creeds, which contain claims predominantly accepted by followers of the Christian faith.[ These professions state that Jesus suffered, died, was buried, and was resurrected from the dead to open heaven to those who believe in him and trust him for the remission of their sins .They further maintain that Jesus bodily ascended into heaven where he rules and reigns with God the Father. Most denominations teach that Jesus will return to judge all humans, living and dead, and grant eternal life to his followers. He is considered the model of a virtuous life, and both the revealer and physical incarnation of God. Christianity began as a Jewish sect and is classified as an Abrahamic religion. Originating in the eastern Mediterranean, it quickly grew in size and influence over a few decades, and by the 4th century had become the dominant religion within the Roman Empire. During the Middle Ages, most of the remainder of Europe was Christianized, with Christians also being a religious minority in the Middle East, North Africa, and parts of India.Following the Age of Discovery, through missionary work and colonization, Christianity spread to the Americas, Australasia, and the rest of the world. Christianity, therefore, is a major influence in the shaping of Western civilizationAs of the early 21st century, Christianity has around 2.2 billion adherents. Christianity represents about a quarter to a third of the world's population and is the world's largest religion. In addition, Christianity is the state religion of several countries. The death and resurrection of Jesus are usually considered the most important events in Christian Theology, partly because they demonstrate that Jesus has power over life and death and therefore has the authority and power to give people eternal life Modern Christian churches tend to be much more concerned with how humanity can be saved from a universal condition of sin and death than the question of how both Jews and Gentiles can be in God's family. According to both Catholic and Protestant doctrine, salvation comes by Jesus' substitutionary death and resurrection. The Catholic Church teaches that salvation does not occur without faithfulness on the part of Christians; converts must live in accordance with principles of love and ordinarily must be baptized. Martin Luther taught that baptism was necessary for salvation, but modern Lutherans and other Protestants tend to teach that salvation is a gift that comes to an individual by God's grace, sometimes defined as "unmerited favor", even apart from baptism. The Bible (the Old Testament & New Testament ) is holy books for them.A christian could be very well defined as one who believes in Christ and live unto His ideals in his/her life.
Bishwanath Singh  :
The Christians believe Jesus as their Messiah.He was anointed by God as savior of humanity, and hold that Jesus' coming was the fulfillment of messianic prophecies of the Old Testament. The Christian concept of the Messiah as we have known differs significantly from the contemporary Jewish concept. The core belief is that through belief in and acceptance of the death and resurrection of Jesus, sinful humans can be reconciled to God and thereby are offered salvation and the promise of eternal life.Let us pay our respectful obeisances to the lotus feet of Jesus Christ who is our Almighty father and savior live in heavenly abode!
