It is this very universality of Hinduism that carried it far and wide into the world beyond the borders of Bharat. Along with its
civilization and culture, philosophies, arts and sciences, mythology and rituals, Hinduism has practically inundated all the major
cultural regions of the world. It is a well-known historical fact that the countries of South East Asia, Ceylon, West Asia, part of
the African continent, Europe and America are full of the impress of Hindu culture and civilization.
The Sanskrit language, the two great Epics, temples dedicated to Shiva, Vishnu and Ganapati, and a few of the rituals and sacraments are to be found
even today in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia and the Philippines.
