India is a deeply spiritual place. Looking around you in this country, you’ll see brilliant examples of it everywhere: in the guru holding court on the side of the road, in a throng of believers shuffling into a temple, in the simple bow of a villager before a shrine.

See the Roots of Many Religions

India is where Buddha reached enlightenment. It is home to the vast majority of Hindus and a huge portion of the world’s Muslim population; it has nurtured upstart religions like Jainism and Sikhism and allowed them to flourish. Christians and Jewish settlers have found India to be a welcoming place, and small clusters of Zoroastrians still practice their faith here. Quite simply, there is no nation on the planet more religiously diverse—and spiritually dynamic—than India. And though most of these religions are rooted in ancient history, you will find a culture that is still deeply committed to matters of faith.
