This article talks about the three major religions of ancient India.  The first religion that is talked about is Hinduism. Hinduism is polytheistic and henotheistic and there is no one main teacher of the religion. Brahmanism is considered an early form of Hinduism and was based on Vedic writing. Buddhism is practiced by the followers of Gautama Buddha, and karma and reincarnation are important elements of the religion. Jainism is a non-theistic religion and is founded my Mahavira.
