I believe Hinduism at least influences their everyday life by devotional traditions; their lives are so imbued with spiritual meaningful aspects that spiritually are never far from one's mind. Rituals from a cradle to the cremation ground, the Hindu's life are wrapped up in rituals. Life stages of attaining spiritual realization or liberation is thought to take at least a lifetime, and probably many lifetimes.
