Hinduism shares many of its pillars with Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism: Ahimsa (Nonviolence), Detachment from the fruit of actions, truthfulness, yoga, meditation.. Furthermore, all of them were born in India, the land in which more religions have emerged. Many Hindus consider these three religions as sisters, some even think that they are other valid paths within Sanatana Dharma.

«he emergence of higher religions was a slow and gradual process..The 6th century BC. C. Is the time of Confucius, Lao-Tzu, Siddhartha Gautama (The Buddha), Mahavira (the founder of Jainism), Deuteroisaías (anonymous Jewish prophet) and the Greek philosopher-Profeta Pythagoras.» Arnold J. Toynbee.

In the 6th century BC. C, Hinduism was consolidated as an alternative or evolution of the Vedic religion (remember that for Hindus it is the Eternal Religion) and Brahmanism. The Buddha, in northwest India, created Buddhism. And Mahavira, Jainism. Society and religion were controlled by the Brahmin caste, where salvation was restricted only to them, the lower Castes believed that they were immersed in an infinite cycle of births and resurrections and where sacrifice was a common practice. These three religions will be an alternative, or a heresy, to the existing religion and the prevailing violence.
