With the advent of civilization, gradually a code of conduct got developed. Religions are practically nothing but a code of conduct. The code of conduct which got developed in the Indus Valley region became known as Hinduism based on the word Sindhu, the Indo-Aryan name for the Indus River. Since it emerged as a social code of conduct from the society as a whole, there is no individual founder of Hinduism.
Leaving aside the ritualistic part, Hinduism in essence prescribes about the essential duties of the mankind like honesty, self restraint, compassion and refraining from causing harm to living beings etc. through the practices like worship, meditation, recitations and pilgrimages etc.

The name hindu came from the Hindukush mountains. This religion gradually develops day after day. The name is also based on a river named as the Sindhu(Indus river). In ancient times it is named as Sanatan Dharma.
It is based on sacrifice, humanity, duties, faith, honesty. It also gives the basic knowledge about worship, meditation, yoga, health etc.

Hinduism is not a religion, it is a way of life which is practiced in Indus valley region. Someone confuses 'Sanatan Dharma' and mixes Hinduism with that. As its name suggests, it is practiced since time immemorial. This region has the history of one of the oldest civilisation. Therefore its evolution process is also the longest one. If we see the history of human, we come to know that as it gets evolve with the time few refinement come across the society. Lastly we reached to the democratic way of living. Hinduism too has evolved as a democratic religion, where it talks about Karma and our duty and let Almighty decide the fate. It is up to their follower, how he performs his Karma in a rightful way. There is no single path to reach Almighty and every one can choose their own path just keeping in mind that no one gets hurt. The gist of Hinduism is 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbkam'.
