The main beliefs are intricate and can get very confusing. In Hinduism, it is believed that everything is the manifestation of one. That everything is one. There are many, many gods, and there are a few main gods, and people pick and choose which they're going to worship, but they believe that each …god is a different manifestation of the same god. That everything exists within themselves, just as it exists outside of themselves. So someone could say that they are god, and in their belief system they'd be correct - but the fact is that everyone and everything is god, just as everyone and everything is everyone else. They believe in reincarnation. They believe in karma. The purpose of life is to attain enlightenment, to prosper, to fulfill their purpose, and to be happy and deal with karma/desires. As far as practices, most practice religiously at home where they have shrines. These shrines are usually sculptures of the god/gods they personally worship. Worship is often meditation. It can also be practicing yoga. Puja may also be practiced, which is the gazing upon an image in order to connect to the divine within - this practice is done in the morning after bathing and dressing, but before eating.
