Religion is a way of life for most people. Their lives and attitude are shaped by religious beliefs, practices and their culture. It’s the very fabric of life.

As Hindus we deserve the opportunity to look at life from a Hindu standpoint and to understand the lifestyle of the other people, without fear or prejudice. Therefore, it is important that as learners we gain an awareness of our rich Hindu heritage; the contributions it has made, and to continue to make to our culture, art, music, history and other areas of human experience, and particularly its relevance to our daily lives.
