Minimally it stands for a tradition of Indian philosophical thinking.However, it could be interpreted as designating one comprehensive philosophical doctrine, shared by all Hindu thinkers.

There are literally thousands of customs and traditions in Hinduism.

They vary from region to region and caste to caste. We would try to list down each and every Hindu custom and tradition here.

From what I understand, a marriage between a non-catholic & a catholic will always be only a blessing ceremony. You cannot enter into a sacramental ceremony if you don't believe in it I guess. There is nothing wrong in learning about Hinduism or any other major religion while being a catholic.

If one is raised in strong faith as a Catholic, one will find the beauty of the revealed love of God through the Catholic Church. I will not try to paint a rosy picture for a mix marriage. In any marriage whether catholic or not, there is going to be a lot of give and take and also a lot of finding out of different value and beliefs concepts between two person.

The Sanskrit word for cow is aghnaya, meaning “not to be killed.” Hindus do, however, use cow byproducts in ritual worship and many families have at least one milk-giving cow.

The five products of the cow are known as panchagavya and include milk, curd, ghee, urine and dung. Worship and prayer in Hinduism is mainly a personal experience.

In total, Hindu philosophy has made a sizable contribution to the history of Indian philosophy and its role has been far from static: Hindu philosophy was influenced by Buddhist and Jain philosophies, and in turn Hindu philosophy influenced Buddhist philosophy in India in its later stages. “Hinduism” is a term used to designate a body of religious and philosophical beliefs indigenous to the Indian subcontinent.

In recent times, Hindu philosophy evolved into what some scholars call "Neo-Hinduism," which can be understood as an Indian response to the perceived sectarianism and scientism of the West. Hinduism is one of the world’s oldest religious traditions, and it is founded upon what is often regarded as the oldest surviving text of humanity: the Vedas. Countries with Hindu majorities include Bali, India, Mauritius and Nepal, though countries in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas have sizable minorities of practicing Hindus.

Mainly, people living in villages in India are very conscious regarding these.
