Hindu life styles and beliefs are focused mainly on one single worldview that everyone accepts and worships. Samsara is a continued cycle of ongoing rebirths, ones ultimate goal throughout each life is to attain the state of Moksha. Moksha is achieved when one realizes the true nature of surrounding life. Once Moksha is attained the endless cycles of karmic trajectories are finally released along with the eternal cycles of recurring rebirths. The Maya is described as a covering of ones true Moksha, an ignorance or false views of ones true nature.

In dharma one must prioritize life, starting with duty of the caste, every action has an effect on the community and/or society. Every being has to maintain good karma in order to preserve a stable society. In karmic ideology every negative action in any of the recurring past lives will degrade an individuals position in the caste system, therefore effecting believer's actions. The caste system is outlined as follows: Brahmins (priests) Kshatryas (royalty) Valshyas (merchants) Shudras (laborers) Harijans or outcasts (garbage cleaners, low occupation) The problem with the social ...
