Hinduism like Buddhism began in India, but much earlier than Buddhism, about 1500 B.C.To summarize the Hindu belief would be impossible because there are so many different ways to look at it. That is why there is so many different sects. But they all believe in Brahman (the three-in-one god), Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the preserver), and Shiva (the destroyer). Man is subject to fate since he is part of Brahman.
