The Hinduism is preached on a different scale wherein uneducated people are made to understand the philosophy on a basic level so that they can relate to it in the form of a story. The focus is kept on the temples and the Gods and Goddesses inside them. People believe that God resides inside the idols and thus they worship them with devotion.
