The word "religion" that is used by Hindus in life berketuhanan Almighty comes from the Sanskrit root word "image" which means "go" or "travel". Uric word "gam" is a prefix "a" which means "no" and added "a" in the back, which means "something" or to function as a suffix in Sanskrit in order to change the verbs into adjectives. Thus the word religion means "something that does not go", no change or permanent, lasting (eternal). That never changes or it is eternal God and his teachings. As a term and then the word religion has a sense of the rules or the teachings that come from Almighty God (Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa) is derived in the form of revelation (Sruti) through the Prophet (Maha Rishi) to organize the universe and its contents both in spiritual life and physical life.

Hinduism as a religion

Hindu term used now as the name of religion is generally not known in classical times. Hundreds of years before the year AD, adherents of Vedic scriptural teachings flourish and thrive in society, so the experts mentioned the name of religion of the Vedas or Vedic Age.

Then the Hindus used the name by taking the name of the place where the religion began to grow, ie around Sind or Indus river. Sindu said this was later changed to the Hindu word for the law affected by metathesis in Sanskrit in which the use of the letter "s" and "h" can be interchangeable, for example, the word "Soma" can be said Homa, the word "Satima" can be Hatima , and so on.

Sindu said the Hindu or Sanskrit is considered Masculine noun, which means the water points, river, sea, or ocean. Water symbolizes water Amrita defined eternal life, used in religious ceremonies in the form of Hindu Tirtha (holy water).

The term religion with a sense of the term dharma is difficult to distinguish, then in relation to the name of Hinduism is often called the Hindu Dharma, even more common in India this name is used.

Hindu Destination

In the Vedic scriptures explained the purpose of religion as stated in the verse "YES MOKSARTHAM CA JAGADHITA ITI DHARMAH" which means that the goal of religion or dharma is to achieve and moksa jagadhita. Moksha also called Mukti means achieving freedom or also known jiwatman achieve lasting spiritual happiness in the hereafter. Jagadhita also called bhukti prosperity and happiness of every person, society, or country.

So roughly the Hindu goal is to deliver his people in achieving prosperity in this world and achieve the happiness moksa in the Hereafter.
