    Inspired by 'Explain Buddhism in 5 words' by @Snow White, and asking her if it would be okay, I have created this thread. If you can, please describe Hinduism in nine words.

    Note: Another name for Hinduism is Sanātana Dharma, which in Sanskrit can mean the 'eternal or imperishable religion.' In Mandarin, the number nine is jiǔ, which has the same pronunciation of a Mandarin word that means 'everlasting.' So, you can very likely see why I am asking for a description of Hinduism in nine words. Not saying you have to mention the everlastingness of anything, by the way.

    True, the one word that describes Hinduism or any other Indic religion (Buddhism, Jainism or Sikhism) is 'Dharma' (Duties). There is no need for eight more words. Charity, compassion, truthfulness, study, etc., all are duties.
