Central to Hinduism is vegetarianism and the "Holy Cow" as well as concepts of reincarnation & Karma.
"Hinduism is generally regarded as the world's oldest organized religion.
Hinduism differs from Christianity and other Western religions in that it does not have a single founder, a specific theological system, a single system of morality, or a central religious organization. It consists of "thousands of different religious groups that have evolved in India since 1500 BCE." Hinduism has grown to become the world's third largest religion, after Christianity and Islam. It claims about 837 million followers - 13% of the world's population.It is the dominant religion in India, Nepal, and among the Tamils in Sri Lanka." ~ Taken from http://www.religioustolerance.org/hinduism.htm

Hindu: Prayer for the Unity of All Life
May the winds, the oceans, the herbs, and night and days, the mother earth, the father heaven, all vegetation, the sun,
be all sweet to us.
Let us follow the path of goodness for all times, like the sun and the moon moving eternally in the sky.
Let us be charitable to one another.
Let us not kill or be violent
with one another.
Let us know and appreciate the points of view of others. And let us unite.
May the God who is friendly, benevolent, all-encompassing, measurer of everything, the sovereign, the lord of speech, may He shower His blessings on us....
Oh Lord, remove my indiscretion and arrogance, control my mind. Put an end to the snare of endless desires. Broaden the sphere of compassion and help me to cross the ocean of existence.
