Hinduism is formed of diverse traditions and has no single founder Among its direct roots is the historical Vedic religion of Iron Age India and, as such, Hinduism is often called the "oldest living religion" or the "oldest living major religion" in the world.
A large body of texts is classified as Hindu, divided into Śruti ("revealed") and Smriti ("remembered") texts. These texts discuss theology, philosophy and mythology, and provide information on the practice of dharma (religious living). Among these texts, the Vedas are the foremost in authority, importance and antiquity. Other major scriptures include the Upanishads, Purāṇas and the epics Mahābhārata and Rāmāyaṇa. The Bhagavad Gītā, a syncretistic treatise from the Mahābhārata, is of special importance. It combines Vedanta, Yoga, and some Samkhya philosophy into its discussion of good conduct and life.
All these are for one’s goodness, peacefulness, prosperity etc etc. in many forms. It is an occasion and one can’t find time (I mean 24hrs a day). With present way of hectic life, where one is running against time, it is necessary to find some time for netya karma, prayer cum meditation to suit ones taste and liking.
Understanding better on these, westerners start doing these activities under many names and become a commercialized one.
