    Hi! Im a college student taking a Hinduism class and I am doing a report/questionnaire on Hinduism and was wondering if anyone would be willing to answer a few questions for me? If something is too personal, please feel free to skip that question. I really appreciate the help! 1. How long have you been a Hindu? Has it always been a part of your life? 2. What fulfillment do you personally receive from your Hindu faith? 3. Do you find it hard to be a practicing Hindu in the Bay Area? 4. Have you ever felt pressure from older generations to be more conservative, less involved with American culture? 5. Do you find that people of other cultures/backgrounds are understanding or supportive of your faith? 6. Are there any parts of your faith that you do not particularly agree with? 7. Do you think there is any major part of Hinduism that is misunderstood by the American population at large? 8. Have you ever relied on your faith to get you through a rough patch in your life? 9. Have you ever had doubts about your religion and why you are a practicing Hindu? 10. How would you describe Hinduism to someone who knew absolutely nothing of the religion? Thanks again for taking the time to read this!!

    Well I don't even find it question since hinduism you are talking about is dogmatic thought process the real hinduism i.e sanatan dharma is beyond all this...first you need to understand there is lo9t of difference between religion and dharma..if you are interested you can equire for exact questions rather than too many at one go
    thanks and regardsgarr
