The Hindu pantheon is built around a trinity of gods, the Trimurti, made up of Brahma, the creator, Shiva, the destroyer and Vishnu, the preserver of the worlds.

All gods emanate from Brahman, a fundamental, eternal and uncreated divine principle.

Hinduism professes that human beings can find liberation in absolute devotion to a deity (bhakti) and not just in worldly renunciation and asceticism.

He cultivates the idea of a cosmic and social order, dharma, which defines the duties to which men are bound. According to their good and bad deeds, they are subjected to perpetual rebirth, karma, until they manage to merge into the very substance of the universe, Brahman, i.e. God, of which the Hindu pantheon is only the manifestation.

The social division into four castes or "varna" (from a word meaning color) derives from this faith: at the top of the social scale are the Brahmins, experts in rites, priests and teachers, then the Kshatriya or Kshatria (warriors), the Vaiçya or Vaisa (workers) and the çudras or Sudra (servants).

The Brahmins would have come from the mouth of the god Brahma, the Kshatriyas from his arms, the Vaisa from his thighs and the Sudra from his feet.

Each of these castes is divided into a multitude of sub-castes, sometimes close to trade guilds, which differ according to region. We are born into a caste and only death and reincarnation allow us to escape from it.

There remain the outcasts or "untouchables", commonly despised (around 15% of the Indian population): they are known in the West under the name of pariahs (from the Tamil word that designates them).

Gandhi, out of compassion, called them 'Harijan' (children of God). They themselves claim the nickname "Dalit" (oppressed in Hindi). Situated outside the caste scale, traditionally confined to tasks considered the most impure: cleaning latrines, collecting garbage
