Some Hindu beliefs and practices:
Hindus believe that life is a cycle of birth, death and rebirth. In other words, that every soul has more than one life. A soul passes through a cycle of lives, and a life depends on how the previous one was lived. A person who is not good in this life will have an unpleasant time in their next life. This is called karma, or fate.
Most Hindus are vegetarians: This means they don’t eat meat, or fish, or anything that comes from animals. Milk is the only exception.
