its varanasi well its sacred for hindus because a very important river (Ganga) flows through the city, which bears extreme importance in the Hindu mythology and is worshiped by many devotees. over the years, Varanasi has become a major city for the Hindus from the religious point of view. a number of festivals in the honour of the Ganges are held, which is one of the major reasons for Varanasi's evolution as a sacred place of Hindus. Innumerable cremation spots, pandits, temples etc are a common sight in Varanasi today.

Cow, in Hinduism, is considered the most sacred animal and is called 'Mata' (Mother) - the one who gives birth to all life. Killing and/or any sort of torture to the Cow is prohibited in Hinduism. Its milk is considered as 'Amrit' - the water of life. Even the Cow Urine and defecation is held sacred and is believed to have healing medicinal properties. Eating cow meat, beef or gelatin is strictly prohibited in Hinduism.

The word 'sacred' is used to mean something that is holy. Used in a sentence: "John wanted to touch the relic when the priest held him back and informed him that it was sacred, and therefore isn't supposed to be touched."

The Olympic games are loosely based on the ancient Olympic Games of ancient Greece. These were called the Olympic Games because they were held in Olympia, which was a plain in the district of Elis, in southern Greece that was regarded as a sacred region.

very simple answer is that Hinduism was never a religion but a philosophy, a way of life and thus a Hindu can take up any religion of choice!!! Gautam Buddha, who was a Hindu by birth had preached on a more enforced form of Hinduism which was fasinating for hindus and thus the conversion in the old times, in the recent past, mass conversion was held for the so called lower caste hindus to escape from the caste system.

Secret is something you don't want anyone to know about and sacred is about a person, place, thing or idea, that is somehow held in reverence, usually by a religious group but not always.
