Hinduism is a dynamic South Asian religion, centered in India. Hindus may classify themselves as monotheists, polytheists, pantheists, panentheists, and under other theological umbrellas; essentially, Hindus can shape Hinduism to fit their personal belief systems.
In theological theory, Hindus believe that there is one Supreme Being who emanates through all life. The gods of Hinduism, or Devas and Devis, are powerful spiritual beings who are either aspects of the Supreme Being or occupy a holy station beneath the Supreme Being, almost like angels.
Cycles of destruction and creation are important concepts in Hinduism, and Hindus believe that the soul undergoes many reincarnations until the point of moksha, or liberation, is reached.
